Windblown in Los Angeles

We spent the weekend in Los Angeles visiting family and friends and everyone kept telling us how surprised they were by the weather.  Well, so were WE! I only brought sundresses and one pair of jeans.  Fortunately, I always wear a sweater on the plane and I had packed a lightweight wrap. The first day I stayed in wrinked jeans and my sweater while we met up with friends to lunch and went whale watching before meeting up with my brother in law and his wife for drinks and dinner.  Saturday, we met up with my husband's cousins for brunch in Los Feliz.  They picked a great place called Figaro, where we ran into Mark Boone (Bobby Munson from SOA) but I was too intimidated to ask for a photo.  Figaro had fabulous pastries, okay coffee and smashing mimosas-we ordered a large carafe!

There was a rainstorm the night before and while it was still windy, the view from the Griffin Observatory was gorgeous! We didn't get very many photos because we had very limited time after brunch before we were meeting with friends in Redondo beach and I took most of the time we had at the Observatory standing in line waiting to use the bathroom.

Walking up to the observatory gave us a fantastic view of not just the observatory, but LA as well. 
We're in Hollywood, Baby!

After our trek up to the Observatory, spending the rest of the day watching redondo beach while drinking appletinis with friends was the perfect way to unwind.  We arrived back in Texas to be greeted by cold weather again, so I was very glad for the weekend getaway.

What are your favorite LA Hangouts?
