Where are you originally from? Gardena. It's not too far away from here.
So, you wouldn't consider yourself a tourist, then? No, more like a visitor.
Do you come here often? Sometimes. Today I felt like riding my bike, so I did. It took an hour. I'm retired, so I have plenty of time.
Any other places you frequent in Manhattan Beach? Not really. Just this bench.
Why the bench? I enjoy the view and the people.
And you must enjoy the weather as well, right? I was on the phone to a friend from Nebraska this morning, and he said it was 104 degrees out there. He didn't believe me when I said how nice and warm it was here.
