Simple Pleasures...

If you've never been or it's been a while, take yourself to the Huntington Gardens in San Marino and enjoy all the beautiful gardens and the wonders of the wildlife you will cross paths with. If you have family or friends coming to town to visit, this is a great place to show another side of all that L.A. has to offer, or just go to decompress. Visit their website at for hours and to find out what their galleries have on exhibit and what is in their gardens. It's pretty spectacular and I have been a member for 10 years plus!

Food in the Neighborhood...

LAWeekly came out this week with their 'The 99 Essential Restaurants' issue. Among those listed are quite a few in our Wilshire Center/Koreatown neighborhood. You can read the full list on their website at , but I will mention just 4 of them here and you can follow up with your own research and tastings.

- Park's BBQ at 955 S. Vermont (between San Marino & Olympic),
- Pot, located inside the Line Hotel (just 2 blocks west from our home here at the Gaylord, at the corner of Wilshire & Normandie), .
- Saint Martha at 740 S. Western (between 7th & 8th St.), .
- Guelaguetza, 3014 W. Olympic (between Irolo & Normandie), .

These are a combination of traditional Korean bbq, Korean fusion, new American cuisine and good old Oaxacan mole. So, go to their websites, read the menus, check out the prices, look at the reviews on yelp and be adventurous!

After the Recent Rains...

Los Angeles, after the rains, is always so beautiful with the fresh, clear skies, as seen here in these photos taken from the upper floors of the Gaylord.

The view from our south facing units, photo top, in the center on the horizon, you see the Palos Verdes peninsula and just to the right, barely there is Catalina Island out in the Pacific.

The view from our northeast facing units, photo above, center right on the horizon line off in the distance, the San Gabriel snow-capped mountains. One of the advantages of living in L.A. and at the Gaylord, you can view the snow on the mountains, but not have to deal with the cold.
