This Afternoon... Out and about.....

Friday Afternoon By The Shore...
Late lunch in downtown Santa Monica... around 2:30 pm and the SUN is OUT "BIG TIME!"... This time of year the sun sets directly in front of the beach facing streets!  You gotta wear shades.  Take a stroll with us and check out some of the trademarks we saw along the way...

Into the Sun!  Santa Monica Blvd., just east of 4th St... at 2:30 pm.
4th St. and Santa Monica Blvd.
Sunglasses and a hat can barely cut the glare...
One more block to go to Ocean Ave...
The Pacific Ocean from the bluffs to the west of Santa Monica Blvd.
Starline Tours... en route along Ocean Ave.
The Santa Monica Pier. Check out the circus tents of Cirque du Soleil which opens tonite...

The California Highway Patrol (CHP) staying busy... on PCH.

Over the shoulder shot on the way back to the office... at 2nd St. and Broadway.

The world famous Nike "swoosh" logo/trademark
LOUIS VUITTON®... a trademark and a service mark
An old coffee can, this trademark was originally registered in 1954 (which has since expired for reasons unknown); there is a new registration dated from the year 1996, however. Coffee is registrable in International Class #30.
The bookshelf at GROUNDWORK® Coffee at Santa Monica Place
Friday afternoon snack... Coffee by "Groundwork". Cookie by "The Curious Palate".
note:  GROUNDWORK® registered in Class #30 for coffee and tea; as well as in Class #35 for retail services.


We hope you all have a nice weekend wherever you are.
