These part few weeks have be chalked full of activity. Both fun and stressful at the same time. One of the fun minus stress activities of the week was that my friend V can to visit from Florida. That gave me the perfect excuse to take a day of mid work week. She arrived on Monday night so we went to a local Cuban place and had the prerequisite huge glass of Sangria to start the visit.

On Tuesday, which was the actual vacation day, we did a lot of running around to take in all the things she missed about So. Cal while living in Florida – Ikea, Vietnamese Food, and freeway traffic. The main attraction of the day was the Getty Museum, a place that I had never been before so it was nice to be a tourist in my own area. There were of course quite a few exhibits, the majority of which I don’t remember. I like museums, but they don’t always stick with me. But some of the exhibits I liked were

However, my favorite part about the Getty was the garden areas. I love gardens, especially photographing them. V and I sat on the grass and relaxed. We ate, knit, napped, and poked fun at the unruly children playing on the grass while their parents tried to corral them in.


Then we walked around the grounds and enjoyed the beauty that is nature. Hope you enjoy it too
