Los Angeles!


Hello everyone!

After settling into Los Angeles and getting a car of our own, Dan and I set out to do some exploring.

For our first adventure in the Los Angeles area, we drove to Venice Beach to explore the hip site of the Dan 3.0 "Free Hugs" episode. The drive there was also Dan's first time driving on an LA area freeway. He drove very intensely.

After a quick drive we arrived at Marina Del Ray. Marina Del Ray was a cute little beach town, but that was it. It was just a beach town with a bunch of quirky stores. Definitely not a place I would want to live, but a place I'd like to visit again.

The weather was warm, and we had a cool breeze; It was a great atmosphere to explore Venice Beach.

They had some strange, but festive, masks.

As it got later Dan and I decided to sit and watch the sun set over the Pacific. The West Coast sure does have the East Coast beat on sunsets.

On the drive home we passed rather closely to downtown Los Angeles.


The next morning, we drove into Los Angeles again to go to the Los Angeles meet up at the Griffith Observatory. The observatory is a great little museum at the top of Griffith Park in Los Angeles. Los Angeles can be a pretty dirty, hectic place, but Griffith Park is placed right along all of that cityness and has tons of great trails that go up and around the hilly areas.

We met up with around 40 people and started off the afternoon with a name game to break the ice.

We had a ton of fun memorizing everyone's names and everyone else seemed to be enjoying themselves as well.

Dan and I had a blast at the Los Angeles gathering! The weather was great and everyone was a ton of fun! We were also super exhausted and really took in the sunset over the park as we walked back to the car.

Next up is the San Francisco gathering/trip! Woohoo!
