We had a fun-filled, busy time in the Los Angeles area, the first stop of our trip.
Our first stop was my son's job site . . . a house being built for a famous Hollywood couple. The company my son works for is doing the finishing carpentry.

|Nice view from beyond the pool :)|
|Tools of the trade|
Our next stop was the Reagan Library in Simi Valley.
|Having a talk with his hero :)|
Dinner that evening with son Bill and girlfriend Melisa.
The next day on to the USS Iowa at the LA Waterfront.
San Pedro Aquarium. I could sit all day and watch the moon jellies.
We headed to the San Pedro Lighthouse, but it was closed for the day. My son proceeded to tell us about the Sunken City. It is a closed area and one can be arrested for trespassing. You had to scale a fence and walk down this embankment (cliff???) to get to the restricted area.
We were feeling wild and crazy, so decided to take the chance (along with DOZENS of other people). Let me tell you, not a wise thing to do in sandals, but I did it :)
I would like to have explored further, but decided with my sandal issue, it really wasn't a good idea. Getting out was scarier than getting in. I'm sure we were the oldest trespassers of the day :)
Look at the size of this tree.
A visit to a Civil War Museum. I had no idea California had any part in the Civil War.
And the Maritime Museum. Aren't these wooden boats gorgeous?
That's it for today. Thanks so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)
