My flight yesterday was pretty uneventful. My pre-check status made security really easy. I had a good seat on the airplane. The turbulence during landing on Maui (there is always turbulence) wasn’t too bad.
When I got home, I just rested. I watched tv, I did a little laundry, and I looked at my mail.
There was a package in the mail that was a mystery to me. It was a Christmas ornament of a hairless cat. It was from someone on Etsy. I have no idea who might’ve sent it:
Yesterday was a sight-seeing day. We decided to see the Griffith Observatory. It’s a beautiful building, it’s up on a hill, and I recognized it as being in a Charlie’s Angels movie.
The observatory opened at noon, so we spent a little time driving to the ocean to look at the view. We didn’t stop, so I don’t have a picture of the ocean, but I did get a picture of the Trump golf course when we drove by:
The drive to the observatory took more than an hour, and that was even with no traffic. LA is really spread out! We drove past downtown. I kept wondering where that triangle-shaped building was that is in all the movies, but Denis told me that was in San Francisco.
We got to the observatory at 12:10. The internet said that was ten minutes after it opened. ALL the parking was full. The only way to get there was park, then hike a LONG way. We decided not to go. I got a picture as we drove by:
As it turned out, we were right next to LA’s Filipino town. We stopped at a Filipino restaurant and had lunch.
By the time we got back, it was late afternoon. We made a couple of stops for sundries, then went home. I leave this morning for Maui. I hope this flight is smoother than my last…
It was a sleep-in day yesterday. My body clock never quite got used to the Nebraska time zone. I’m still not on Maui time here, but it’s a couple of hours closer.
After an awesome diner breakfast, we went out to return some items at some stores. That also meant doing some shopping. Yay! I like just window shopping, but I did end up buying a shirt.
We took a break from shopping to watch Star Wars. It was fun to see again. Plus, I had some Milk Duds. For some reason, all the Milk Duds I’ve had in Maui are stuck together in a sticky mess inside the box. These Milk Duds were separate and non-sticky and delicious!
Before heading home, we stopped for milk, because I love milk. There was a Ross nearby, so we went inside. I saw a shirt that I wanted to buy so badly, but it was the wrong size. Dang.
I would love it for the Hawaiian print alone, but besides that, it has the Icee bear on it! Ha! Awesome!
