One of my favorite sculptures in downtown LA. “Uptown Rocker”
By Lloyd Hamrol 1986
Nobody gets between Angelenos and their love love hate relationship with their cars.
I may have agreed to go to the model train museum with an eye roll, but I left loving this miniature art form. The tiny winding tracks swing through nostalgic small towns and grand canyons and comment on issues as varied as immigration and dinosaurs.
I just went to Balboa Park with my awesome Dad (thanks Dad!). For those who haven’t been, it is a gigantic park in the heart of San Diego chock full of museums, gardens, and a theaters. Basically, a geeky theater & art kids dream come true. These are a few photos from the trip. More coming soon (including the kick-ass model train museum).
I survived the 400 and some steps to the top of the Duomo today. Totally worth the view. Proof:
I am overrun with San Francisco pictures, so I’m afraid days 3-6 will have to wait. In the mean time…. how about a look at all the awesome food we ate over the last week? Yes?
More posts on museums, gardens, and a special “Spot the Golden Gate Bridge” game are coming soon!
*Oh, and a very warm, special, and baked with love thank you to Kate, who took the photos of me and of the Ghirardelli ice cream.
