I could have also titled this post: to LA & back again in 60 hours, OR How I ate my way through LA.
We had been planning this trip for a while but didn’t realize a few things: 1) how short of a time we would be in LA (60 hours total minus 14 hours of driving there and back, and the sleeping; 2) how long it takes to drive everywhere–the traffic is crazy! and 3) how warm it would be (85 degrees on Saturday).
We had a great time anyway and somehow managed to pack in loads of fun stuff. We stayed at a quirky little hotel that has a great little diner. We were surrounded by vegan/vegetarian options everywhere we went, which made it a little too easy to over indulge.
We also went to Venice Beach, Santa Monica Pier, The Getty Museum, a few really great art stores (heaven!!) and the Farmer’s Market.
We walked a lot, did loads of people watching, talked and talked and talked, saw some amazing art at the Getty, ate some delicious vegan food, listened to lots of ’80s music as we drove around site seeing, drank tons of highly sugared coffee and I even had time to do a bit of drawing. Oh, did I mention the kids were with their Memaw? It sounds like they had as much fun as we did. I still couldn’t wait to get back to them and cover them with hugs & kisses.
I’m feeling rejuvenated and highly inspired, ready to catch up on my e-courses and paint, paint, paint!!!
