Walking around, we found ourselves outside of the Chinese American Museum. We only had a few minutes inside before it closed but it was enough to see that we needed more time. I want to go back as soon as I can!
If you ever have the chance to visit the Adamson House in Malibu I highly recommend it. Not only are the coastal views gorgeous, the house itself is stunning. The history of the house and family is fascinating, but it is the use of Malibu Potteries tile that gives the house its ‘historic landmark’ status.
A word of warning to those who use mobility devices: part of the garden tour won’t be accessible to you. The gift shop won’t be a accessible to you. The entirety of the second floor of the Adamson House won’t be accessible to you. You might not be even be able to enter the Adamson House at all, depending on your tour guide. Our assigned tour guide was okay with abandoning me, my walker, and my friend in her wheelchair outside the house with no advice when the tour group went inside. (Really… we asked, he just shrugged.) Thankfully a very sweet museum docent saw us wandering the perimeter of the house looking very lost and took it upon herself to take us to a different entrance with a ramp. We ended up getting a private tour of the first floor of the house, the amazing pool, and the museum. I’m so glad someone took it upon themselves to make sure that we were able to enjoy as much of the house and grounds as possible, it was truly an experience not to be missed.

The very best people-watching.
It’s a thumb thumbdrive. I am way too amused by this!
I really have no explanation for this photo other than boredom.
I like clouds.
I like this fortune, even if it’s not really a “fortune.” If you’re not finding the good things you’re not looking in the right places. Change where you’re looking if you have to. The change is up to you.
I had to pull out an old hard drive for something recently, and I took a look at some old photos that were saved on it.
I had a lovely Fourth of July!
Chips and Salsa. (Yes, I know they are cats. Those are their names.)
A friend and I went to see the Nethercutt Collection yesterday. The Nethercutt Collection is a museum housed in two buildings, one of which you need to make reservations for, both of which are free. I’m not a huge “car” person, but even I was blown away by what I saw. My favorite room was the Music room, last on the tour. I highly recommend going if you can!
