When my brother and his gf came to visit, we made a trip to the Griffith Observatory as well. It was a nice, relaxing drive on a Sunday morning and we had to walk quite a distance uphill to the observatory as it is located in the Hollywood Park and there were a lot of people out there trekking, jogging, having picnics and basically just enjoying the park!
We had a good work-out walking up the hill and it was great to be breathing fresh air and enjoying the scenery! We could see most of LA from up there :D
There were shows being, erm, shown at the Samuel Oschin Planetarium and at first we were thinking if we should but we were all glad that we paid and went for it cos it was awesome! The whole dome ceiling is our 'cinema' and the narrator was great. His voice was so pleasing to the ear and the show is very informative. Totally worth every single penny we paid :)
Learned so many interesting new facts that I utilized during lunch.. haha... to which my brother shook his head and said something like, "this is what happens when we bring her to some place educational...."... LOL. Well, at least I remembered what I learned... duh :P
Anyway, I'm going to share a layout I made featuring my cat, Penny.. she's my absolute precious baby and I think secretly she's a princess... so maybe her 'longer' name should be Penelope instead. More regal, ya? :P
This picture was taken back in April, I think.. when it was still quite chilly and Penny enjoyed being snuggled up in the throw. haha... she actually crawled her way in between the throw on her own... that's how cute she is!!
