We started a little after 7am and it was already approaching 80 degrees out so it was a warm run. After we got back and had some time to rest, I started preparing our picnic feast for our trip to the Hollywood Bowl later that night.
Our meal was comprised of 3 recipes from 3 amazing chef's and it made for a fantastic meal. The main course was was Ina Garten's Caesar Club Sandwich. Brothers-in-law/talented chefs Eric & Ryan introduced us to this sandwich a few years ago when we were in town for a visit. Ever since we've made it for all of our trips to the Hollywood Bowl.

The concert we saw was John Williams: Maestro of the Movies. In case you haven't seen a movie in the past 50 years, John Williams has composed some of the best movie scores of all time including Star Wars, Superman, Indiana Jones, Jaws, Jurassic Park, Catch Me If You Can and many, many others. This is the 3rd time we've seen him at the Hollywood Bowl and while this wasn't the best we've seen, he's still amazing. He opened the show with a medley of songs from his catalogue and other songs that inspired him. Then he started a tribute to Westerns which wasn't the best part of the show. However, James Taylor did make a surprise appearance to read a story that accompanied one of the pieces Williams played. James Taylor also played one of his songs (Sweet Baby James) to the delight of Carly who loves James Taylor.
