LA Story

I’ve been neglecting my blog for the last few days, so this is a catchup.

My weekend with Lee and Barry.

Friday, we do:

La Brea Tar Pits, which I found fascinating.

Griffiths Observatory, where we caught a planetarium show, which was great. However, I admit I was more excited to be around the Observatory featured in James Dean’s Rebel Without A Cause. I really wanted to go “Moooo” at the start of the planetarium show, but restrained myself.

Strange House – I’ve forgotten the name of this house, but it was worth stopping to see.

Saturday:

The Pacific. Santa Monica Pier, and the Pallisades

Farmer’s market n which sounds ordinary, but is something I enjoy.

Watts Towers – a weird structure made of metal, plaster and mosaic formed from broken bottled, chinawear etc.

Museum of Natural History for an exhibition on ice age animals, which turned out to be a puppet show.

In the evening there was a small housefilk, attended by myself, Lee & Barry; Sandy, Gerry & Rhianon Tyras; and Kay & Vicky Shapero.

Sunday:

DMV building – space art murals

Dinner at a Japanese restaurant.

I know I’ve missed a couple of significant thing we did, which I will update when they come to mind. Many thanks to Lee and Barry for hosting me.

    “Strange house” made me think of the Winchester Mystery House, but that’s up in San Jose, so I doubt that’s it.
