I did get to sketch every day that we were in Manhattan Beach. The rental we had didn't have a front door that opened onto the street, so I sketched the house next door. We entered down the alley next to the fence. You can see a bit of the slope of the street. The hill was quite a walk coming back up from the beach.
Here I am...ready for my morning walk.
This is looking up the street. Our apartment was at the very top of the street on the right. The photo doesn't really show how steep it was. My calves definitely got lots of exercise. lol
