the last few days have been a bit slow, thanks to the kid being a bit under the weather. we scrapped our universal studios plans and instead took to the pool and a stop at the ihop. i had waffles topped with what i assume was meant to be whipped cream but it was sort of like vanilla flavored air. whaaaaat?
it felt good to relax and let me tell you, swimming in a pool overlooking LA while 'le soleil est pres du moi' by air plays is as close to heaven as you can get.
i'd show you my full body shot in the pool but i seriously look like a corpse in water. its draw! pilgrim, not drowned! pilgrim.
mmm hotel dry cleaning.. and isn't it cute?
we tried walking places, but i'm not one for the sensible footwear (blister city, population: me) so we quickly caved in and started getting cabs. i get a buzz every time i see this sign. argh! i'm in LA!
the florist around the corner from our hotel had these amazing potted, er, things.
i'm no horticulturalist but they looked like cabbages. pretty and possibly delicious sautéed with bacon (thats my pre-requisite for any floral arrangement)
do not stare directly into the whirly pop or you will be compelled to act like a chicken!
hold me closer, tiny condiments... the coke can is there to show scale. aww they're so teensy!
and look at american smarties, in australia smarties are kinda like flatter m&ms. so, y'know, there's that.
adieu lovely hotel... we shall miss you. next stop, disneyland! but come back on monday to hear about that, my next post is all about the fabulous farmers market! come back for an inundation of amazing vintage signage and kitsch treasures.
