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.
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.
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.
