M & D Visit Los Angeles
Mom and Dad Ward joined me for a weekend in Los Angeles a few months back.
It was one of those gloriously flawless weekends that remind you how awesome life is and why you should appreciate everything around you.
We spent Saturday afternoon at the Getty, looking at fine impressionist paintings, strolling through gardens, and enjoying the (clear!) views of LA.
Dad found particular interest in the imported stone materials used to build the museum itself…Geology majors never quit!
It was a beautiful day to spend outside, catching up and sharing stories.
Our evening was spent dining at the Manhattan Beach Post, a post office turned social house, with long wooden tables and a modern earthy vibe. Dinner started out with bacon cheddar buttermilk biscuits with maple butter, and was followed by several small, family-style dishes that were unique and delicious. MB Post cocktails do not disappoint either, mine consisted of Chopin, grapefruit, basil, raspberry, and pink peppercorns. Definitely check this place out if you’re in the LA area!
Los Feliz welcomed us for breakfast on Sunday, followed by a short visit to the Griffith Observatory. Though 48 hours isn’t enough time to really experience LA, I was happy to show the rents a few of the places I’ve come to love the most, and I can’t wait for the next visitors that come my way!
