Half a block away from our house is Barnsdall Park - a bit of an oddity, this green hill, with straight lines of trees, rising out of the city scape. But, a little hop and a skip down the road, and there we are, overlooking much of Los Angeles. Who would have known such a funny looking park could hold such treasures?
There's a beautiful green patch of grass at the top, as well as some wonderful old buildings, and that's where we sat awhile, bathed in sunlight, three-hundred-and-sixty degree views of this endless city.
Afterwards, another hop and a skip, onto Sunset Boulevard, a visit with some graffiti, a couple of stores, and back to the home base. All in all, a good exploration. And what a way to enjoy the summer sunshine.
