After a whirlwind, five week tour of USA we are back home. Tours are fun but it is always good to get home. We left for LA from Brisbane on 8 June. We were picked up at the airport by our daughter, Sonya and SIL Bernie, who now live in West Hollywood. It was great to see them again and especially our little grandson, Fox.
We left Brisbane at 10:55 am on Wednesday 8 June.
We flew for 13 hours, mostly in the dark and arrived in LA at 7:00 am on Wednesday 8 June. Talk about travelling back in time!
The long flight was worth it to see this gorgeous little fellow.
All together in LA.
We visited the interactive Science Centre. Fox is obsessed with pressing buttons so he loved it there.
They took us to The Getty Center, a collection of buildings perched on a hill in Brentwood overlooking LA. The buildings house a huge collection of art works, it is a grand museum/art gallery. There is also a research centre, a conservation centre and the Getty Foundation. The gardens are a treat too. I was chuffed to see the painting, 'Irises' by Vincent van Gogh.
On other days we visited 'The Grove' an open air mall and...
Pasadena Flea market. It is huge. There is a big population of Mexican people and they are fascinated by the fair haired, blue eyed Fox, who was supposed to be having a nap but it was all too interesting......
especially when Grossvati was arrested by the CA Police.
I was so lucky to meet up with a blogger friend from LA. Sara has a very nice blog, "Come Away With Me", she has poetic prose and artistic photos. She often discusses art and books, which she adores. Sara and the musician were so kind to drive over to meet us. She gave me a hand knitted scarf and gave the family, a bag of home grown avocados. It is fun to meet a real live blogger friend from the other side of the world.
