Observing at the Observatory!

Spontaneous idea in hand, I joined crowds of others yesterday, driving the narrow, winding road from Ferndell to the Griffith Park Observatory. I was stuck in the plodding line of cars, and could do nothing other than inch my way forward to the top. I honestly figured the city must be giving away solid gold souvenirs of the building, to draw such a crowd. Then, it dawned on me. The week between Christmas and New Years on a sunny, mostly clear, quintessential Southern California day… reason enough for tourists and locals alike! I didn’t spend but a minute inside; it was too crowded to see the exhibits, let alone take photos. But, outside was gorgeous for walking the trails and photographing the surrounding view. I can see why so many others also chose to visit! ~SueBee (photos by SueBee)

      And, yes, the world was certainly in the exact spot as me yesterday!

A Note From Abroad

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
