Los Angeles vacation in November

Some of you may know I lived in L.A. for 17 years.  Since moving "back home" to Ohio I never went back, 'til now!  Here's a few pictures from the trip.
Seaweed prettiness.

My Husband and I tend to travel on the cheap. But he wasn't as enthusiastic about this trip as me. It entailed many meet and greets for him not to mention letting me drive. When it came time to figure out where to stay --I indulged and booked a room at the Inn at Playa del Rey.

Best.Decision.Ever.We had a balcony view of the Ballona Wetlands, cranes and bushy tailed squirrels. They left homemade chocolate chip cookies in our room and provided free use of bikes. I'm pretty sure I'll never look at a Motel 6 the same again.

We went to see a taping of the Jeff Probst show.
 Jillian Michaels was the guest.  It airs Tuesday, November 20th.

Old train car.
We took Sunset Blvd from Hollywood all the way to the beach and then drove up the coast.  A day was spent walking Venice Beach too.

The Culver City Art Group was having a show the weekend we arrived and I had great fun making a surprise visit.  This vacation went so fast, it's hard to believe it's over already.  

What?  A traffic jam on the 405?!  Don't miss that.
