Labor Day Dirt
Sadly, this is the unofficial last weekend of the Summer. But, there are always plenty of things to do around here; take a stroll, bike ride or drive on the newly restored and just reopened California Incline. Here is a really cool time lapse video of the reconstruction of this historic part of Santa Monica. The Incline has been a famous site in movies and for tourists.
This weekend is the 94th opening of the Los Angeles County Fair. Enjoy shopping, rides, farm animals and concerts. Of course the food has also become a main attraction, grab something fried, barbequed or deliciously sweet.

Real Estate Info: Many people have asked about renting in the North of Montana Ave marketplace and I ran some stats on rents and leasing. Take a look and call me if you would like to know what your home might be worth on the rental market.
You will see that the averages are pretty high, this is because the Ocean Ave and Palisades Beach Road properties skew the numbers.
