Hi there friends...
I;m back with more trip fun; thanks for stopping by to take a
peek at my virtual photo album!
Today, I'm reliving our time in LA/Hollywood and my fvorite sites around that area.
So here goes---my top sites and the most memorable to me
and my fam in and around LA:
Just 5 sites, but a bazillion pictures!

La Brea Tar Pits
Hey, Hollywood isn't all superficial glitz and empty headed starlets...
and once in a while, a glance at awards' shows red carpets is fun, no?
Turns our the worldwide home to the movie industry
is also home to these "adorable" mastodons, condors, sabre tooth tigers,
Harlan's ground sloths and other titans who ruled LA waaaaaaay before
Wilshire Boulevard even existed,
oh, a few hundreds of millions of years ago.
At La Brea Tar Pits, we explored these fascinating excavation sites and
were amazed by the discoveries being made daily....
all in the shadow of the LA skyline!

Santa Monica Beach
We live right in the heart of what many consider the world's best beaches,
with sand - like powder and iconic hotels and nightlife.....
and yet we never go.
Well, maybe once or twice a summer,
but only at night as the sun is setting.
We hate the beach, the sand, the crowds, the heat,
the salt water, the sunburn.
Though we loooooove Adirondack beaches.
Fresh mountain water, decades of memories.
So what do we do when we go away?
Go to the beach!!??
I have to admit this is one gorgeous spot though.
Talk about picturesque!
Look at those mountains!
Shows, stars and a backlot tram tour!
Back to the Future set:
Pretty cool to have a minion share your name!
Coming soon---our truly wonderful day at Sea World, San Diego!
Come back soon!
