Ah, Contentment!

9 a.m. Monday morning ... out on the long patio-pier that looks out over the Redondo Beach marina ... sun pouring down, coffee cups being replenished with a smile - Welcome to Polly's On The Pier, 233 N. Harbor Drive, Redondo Beach 310-318-3736 rbmarina.com for a look at the menu. There's ample parking in the vast lot and Polly validates!

We had a family meeting there yesterday -- my sister, my cousin Perry and us. Even though the menu warned "this is spicy" and even though our waitress said, "It's kind of hot" Richie and I both ordered the Huevos Rancher ($7) which comes with beans, potatoes and choice of tortilla. Jane went for the guacamole-cheese omelet ($8). Perry had two fried eggs and an apple muffin (don't ask; he's weird.) The eggs were $4.95. Coffee $1.60 and refills are free.

The huevos were indeed spicy but it was a good kind of heat. Jane's omelet was a generous portion with lots of guacamole and cheese. Clean plates were the order of the day.

It was so pleasant to sit there with family, basking in the sun, listening to the waves against the breakwall. I recommend it for good food -- and tranquility! Validated parking is always good for bonus points with me,.
