The Adamson House

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.

Griffith Park

Vacation!

What is it called when you’re on vacation but don’t leave town? A “stay-cation?” It really wasn’t my vacation, I had an out-of-town guest, but it felt like a vacation to me.

We went to Disneyland

We we lucky to have another gorgeous day when we went to the beach

We went sightseeing up in Griffith Park

We also did a lot of visiting, eating yummy food, and laughing & reminiscing. So I didn’t actually go far, but I had a great vacation regardless.

Lincoln Exhibit

A friend and I took a trip to see the “Life & Times of Abraham Lincoln” exhibit at the Reagan Library. It was amazing, I really could have spent all day there… If you live in the area I highly recommend you visit before it’s gone. (These are really bad photos, I know this. The exhibit was poorly lit and everything was behind a reflective surface. Despite all of that, the items on display were so fascinating that I want to share the photos. Try not to judge too harshly please.)

 

We also visited some other parts of the Reagan Library

DTLA

I finally visited the observation deck on top of LA City Hall, the views were great as expected!

Photos, Old and New

Photos from the last however-long-since-my-last-photo-post.

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!
