Drove home in no hurry from dinner in Orange, zig-zagging through surface streets. Saw typical semi-older/mixed southern California suburbia in Santa Ana / Orange / Tustin. Travelled what used to be the north edge of Irvine on Irvine road. A rather large stretch of open space is gone, swallowed by development. Used to rather like the mix of open space and suburbs in Irvine. Tonight it felt like I was driving somewhere in the suburban sea between Westminister and Huntington Beach - adjusted for construction 30-40 years later. Nice enough I suppose, but intensely boring.

Beautiful full moon out tonight, and no where in the endless suburban sea where the moon could be really seen.
