The commute is abysmal to impossible. So in order to stay on the job, housing was arranged for me on the westside. It is a once in a career sort of thing. While I would have preferred to be completely on distant location or able to sleep in my own bed every night, the gig is with the people I enjoy working with, which is ultimately what matters most. Who, not where, should always be the first question.
Being on the westside means that we can kinda act like we’re on distant location—taking our weekends to explore places we never would have from the valley due to the long commute. So for our first little exploration we drove a short half hour to the Malibu Bluffs.
It didn't have the same kind of chaparral as the Carpinteria Bluffs; this was more scrub grass that appeared it may do with some more watering.
