I've lived in Hermosa since 2007, after 6 years in London and New York. I don't know what took me so long. I can hear the waves at night. The weather is between 53 and 78 pretty much year round. We get 325 days of sun a year, and only get smog when the santa anas blow, which is about 5-10 days a year. And I'm 10-15 minutes from LAX.
Hermosa is hermosa. Es verdad.
