Still taken from “Give Us Today Our Daily Terror,” Martijn Hendricks, 2008

I have to go to Bodega Bay, California for a wedding in September. Bodega Bay is best known for being the setting of Alfred Hitchcock’s The Birds, although most of the buildings featured in the movie have been torn down. (Tippi Hedren still signs autographs there, though.) It’s the week after a wedding on a farm in the middle of Kentucky bourbon country, which will be fun.

These weddings are the closest thing to a vacation this year. I want to go to Paris, but instead I’ll go to California. Should we try to camp at Big Sur in between weddings? Or just hang out for the week in LA and see whether we can get jobs there? What would you do?
