in the summer sun6/29/2013
our old haunts, but we also wanted to experience some new local treasures. The
first was a garden in Thousand Oaks which had wonderful floral arches and none
of the crowds that you'd expect. When we weren't being surrounded by flowers,
and subsequently millions of bees, we were busy eating local food from endless
restaurants, painting our nails, going on ice cream walks and enjoying summer.
The second location we visited was the Leonis Adobe. Essentially it is
the oldest private residence in Los Angeles which is probably not even
old for world-wide standards (1844)! There wasn't much to see there
aside from the adorable garden kitties and the round sheep who demanded
treats. To their delight, we forked over our brown paper bags full of hay.
On many of my travels I have often seen an overwhelming abundance of sheep (Faroe Islands, Iceland, etc), however you have to work hard to locate them in Los Angeles! Because of this, I tend to stare at any form of wildlife with wide-eyes and a massive grin! I can already imagine how hilarious this concept is to everyone else in the world. I hope to see many more in England this week and look forward to sharing x
