Los Angeles Through Pictures


I love Los Angeles because California Girl has the best ideas for daily adventures. This was The Husband’s first visit, so there was a lot of ground to cover in three days. Here are some of the highlights of what we saw and what we did.

Found treasures like this handmade 3-D paper art

We couldn’t leave California without heading to the beach, so our last day was all about the ocean.

Santa Monica

Santa Monica
Saw the future, it is in a Santa Monica parking ramp

Were on the Santa Monica Pier before the fog cleared
fishing poles
Just us and the fishermen

Then suddenly, it was clear
Took in a street performance (SPOILER ALERT, he did get all the eggs into the cups)
Pacific Ocean
Splashed in the Pacific Ocean
santa monica promenade
And then walked the streets with dinosaurs

There was just time to drive to Malibu before heading for home

Cue the M*A*S*H theme song

More of our adventures to come….
