Allison arrived late Thursday night and we've been on the go ever since! We're having a great time, but it's flying by. Here's some pictures highlighting her visit so far.
|Walter's warm welcome to Allison|
|Allison always brings gifts : )|
|Walter's new gifts- antlers & a lobster|
On Friday we explored the Venice Canals, Venice Beach, Santa Monica, and Abbot Kinney Blvd in Venice
|A very late lunch at Huckleberry's in Santa Monica|
On Saturday, the weather was rainy in L.A. and the forecast called for clear skies to the east. So we drove to the Angeles National Forest, but evidently we didn't drive far enough. It continued to rain and the visibility was horrible. I found myself describing to Allison what she should be seeing all the way there! We decided to return to the coast and to our surprise the skies had cleared. Steve dropped us off in Santa Monica where we continued to explore Main Street and Third Street Promenade
Santa Barbara was beautiful! We parked at the coast and walked to the downtown area where the streets were lined with shops and restaurants.
On Monday, we went to the beach, walked to Whole Foods for Grilled Cheese Monday (Yum!), and sat out by the pool. When Steve arrived home from work he took us to get this to help with our upcoming adventures!
More to come . . . !!!
