Adventures in So. California

One of the best things about living in Southern California is the endless list of things to do and places to explore. Here are just a few of my favorites.

    Hello Kitty Exhibition

    It’s cute (and sometimes creepy) overload at The Japanese American National Museum in Little Tokyo, now through April 26, 2015. It’s interesting to see just how extensive this global phenomenon really is plus relive some happy moments from childhood.

    I’ve been before but it was a very different experience going with kids. There were so many extra magical moments - and a lot more hunting for Frozen merchandise.

    Bottle Forest

    This one may make it on the weekend itinerary…

    Elmer Long has been collecting bottles and making art out of them since he retired. If you drive from Victorville to Barstow on Route 66 you’ll pass by his collection. Stop by and he’ll invite you in to wander his bottle forest.
