On the subject of friends...

Thursday, July 15, 2010

Ada arrived early this month and stayed with us a little over a week.



In red (my favorite color) and holding her pet rabbit we got busy having fun exploring Los Angeles and Santa Monica together... above, standing by the Los Angeles Civic Center fountain. Do you remember it from the film 500 Days of Summer? How about from *THIS* short short scene in Pretty Woman? It's sadly in the middle of being torn down now to make way for a new shopping and dinning project, but we were happy we got one last snapshot in before they closed it off to the public.



Here she is posing by the Santa Monica Pier entrance.



And below on the pier by the Ferris.



Last looks...



At the top of Elysian Park overlooking some of Dodger Stadium and the Downtown Skyline. Felt bad about the gloom of the marine layer that hung heavy that week, but in retrospect think it was befitting of the mood since I knew she'd be leaving soon.



Thank you again to Ada for her visit and to Adeline of Lady Croissant for letting me be a part of the experiment! Be sure to stop by and say Hi to Ada... *HERE*. There's also more photos from her visit and you can see posts on the other cities she's been to... Italy, France, Singapore, Ireland (it keeps going!). Who knows... she might be on her way to see you soon?

Also, thank you to Scott (the monkey) and his Rebel xt for the Santa Monica and downtown view photos. You're amazing for playing along!

¡Besos and wishes for a great weekend mis amores!
