THIS IS SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 22, 2015! (PART 1)
Another day with too many photos, so here’s the first half of the day complete with pictures of Tubby, a breakfast burrito, and a lovely morning with my parents at the Huntington.

Enjoy!

It’s been unseasonably warm (even for LA) so the fruits on our tree are already ripening!

We arrive at the Huntington by 8. My parents are members and are allowed to arrive early before the general public. They like walking the gardens and wanted to show me a bit of new goodz in the hood

The Huntington has research libraries, an art collection, and botanical gardens. We could only explore the outside grounds before normal visiting hours.

Part 2 includes another museum visit, more rain, and a photo gig at a dark lil’ jazz bar.

Much love friends.
