L.A. Hollywood. SoCal

Hey all. You like the song don't you? I sure do. It is from the movie Once that just came out.
It is a movie from the UK that won some stuff at the Sundance Festival. I haven't seen the movie, but is the lead actor and actress singing this song. So as you may have heard, I got to go on a nice roadie with my best little sister down to SoCal to see our good friend Lisa. It was so awesome. SoCal is just a great place. From the beaches, to the museums, to Hollywood, all that good stuff. This top pic is of us on a tandem beach riding from Santa Monica beach down to Venice beach (crazy people land).

Here is me and Char in Hollywood. In front of the Chinese theatre...with Julie Andrews and my main man Frank Sinatra. I am liking that guy more and more. I can't wait to hear him sing in heavan one day. He is awesome. So simple itinerarie. We drove for what seemed like ages, w/ nice rest stops in Vegas at In and Out Then to the border of Cali/Nevada and a ride on the rolller coaster at Buffalo Bills. It was sweet. Next day, to the beach...Malibu beach, then to Santa Monica and bike ride, then to 3rd Street in Santa Monica (street performers galore). Saw some crazy stuff. Then went up to Hollywood. On Sunday we went to church with Lisa and her sweet fam, had some food with them and then went to the Getty. The sweetest museum I have seen on this side of the US (one of my new favorites in the world) Atop a mountain overlooking LA. The architecture was amazing, the gardens, and the art. Not too much, just a couple from the major artist, but it was quite impressive. They had an awesome Photography exhibit on as well. That the beach in Malibu for a picnic behind all the insanely large houses.

The next day we went to the Ronald Reagan Library, saw the actual Air Force One and learned a lot about Reagan. He was an awesome man...his wife too. Then to Huntingon Beach to Tal's stomping grounds. Hung out there on the beach, then to Anaheim for the Red Sox game...It was Awesome!! The sox lost, but anytime you get to see the two best teams in Baseball go head to head, it is a pretty good game.

Then we hit the road and drove for another 78 hours and got home. With a stop in St. George to say hello. It was quite a trip and it was so awesome to spend some good quality time with my sis. She is the greatest. So much going on for that was great to talk and get advice, and just enjoy ourselves...and wear matching Red Sox shirts from Israel at the game. More pics below. Notice the slide show on the right of a bunch more pics. I think I want to live in SoCal for a while some day.

The Getty. The temple. The beach in Malibu. I think I want to live in Southern California one day. Those beaches. The ocean. The waves. The temple as a beacon over LA. The Red Sox. Hollywood. Huntington Beach. The Ronald Reagan Library. They just have a lot of great stuff in that neck of the wood. No wonder Tal liked it there so much. Best of all I was with Char. We had such an awesome time.
