Getty

Jane and I went to the Getty during her visit here.  On the only day it didn’t rain during her short stay in California…..Approaching the beginning.

This incredible box made a million years ago.  I can’t believe people used to make these things by hand.. whatever it is.

A bit distorted in the center but if I could squeeze my view into one it would look like this

The most moving to me was this sculpture. Jesus and Mary Magdalene.  Her on Him- staying in love.

I was shocked to see this here.  The original Van Gogh.

There was a crowd around this painting.  From afar it looks just like this but stepping up closer you can see each paint stroke.  After I saw this upclose I understood why people have studied this for years.

Cactus field !

I rarely see these kinds of plants in the south.  Cactus…. you never bore me.  I had more fun looking at the different cactus species than of the 100 year old artwork inside the building.

Acting like the ghost in the garden.

 

 

Pictures with the plants.

 

This museum was empty and trying to get someone to take a picture of us was challenging.  This is me using the 10 second self timer. “Hurry!”

The sun was starting to go down and the settings on my camera werent adjusting.  We decided to drive back and made a stop on the beach.

 

Some of me running around while Mish tried the different settings on my camera.

Golden rays of light coming from the Pacific.

Hungry for a snack we stopped by Seoul Sausage.  An innovative Korean American fusion spot.  Asian hot dog with a kimchi fried rice ball.

It had cheese inside!

Another popular spot next door.  Japanese ramen with over 3,000 yelp reviews.  We were curious and decided to split a bowl. It was worth the wait.

Dip ramen. Absolutely the best Japanese ramen I’ve had so far in California.
