Photos from LA


As you may remember, I was away for a little while in Las Vegas. It is, of course, as lovely as the TV shows suggest.

But we did a day trip and made the 4.5 hour drive to LA – naturally, it was the one day of the year it was raining – but we took in a few of the sights. After the jump, a few pictures from Hollywoodland for your enjoyment, including the Chinese Theater and the Walk of Fame.

Santa Monica pier and beach, where Baywatch was filmed.

    I'm glad you had a good time. There are all kinds of good day trips one can make from Las Vegas; I look forward to going back someday.

  • It was about my seventh time there, but the whole 'driving' thing is important for day trips. We did the Grand Canyon, Lake Mead, and the Hoover Dam the last time we were there but we had 10 days that time

    Awh, happy memories of LA! And lurve Santa Monica.
