Springtime in Los Angeles
Friday May 3 through Monday May 6, 2013

Taking a break from work for a few days, we come to Los Angeles to visit some of the places that have always been on our list. I decided to make this particular blog a pictorial blog... So here it is. No writing. Just pictures. Click on pictures to enlarge them.
