LA weekend

We had a great long weekend with AS in town. Delicious sushi, Thai, burritos, a walk of Hollywood, downtown Santa Monica, a couple of movies, a great hike in the mountains...

Beverly Hills on a Saturday night


Hollywood star walk


free parking!
in the distance...the Hollyhock House

We also toured the Hollyhock House (designed by Frank Llloyd Wright). It was really cool, though his designs are not necessarily practical, but that is a whole different discussion. The movies we saw were hit and miss. First The Lovely Bones. Nicole read the book a few years ago and really enjoyed it. The movie, in our three opinions was a disappointment. On the flip side, we saw Sherlock Holmes which we all found entertaining and neatly set itself up for a sequel.

The hike we took was on some of the trails that I run on a regular basis. They provide a great view of the ocean, downtown LA, and on clearer days than we had you can see the snow capped mountains in the distance. Later in the day we went down to the canals in Venice to walk around and check out all the interesting homes along the water.

That's the news for now.
