Spring break in SoCal.

We enjoyed ten days in southern California over spring break. Some highlights here.

Aunt Ann and Santos at Ann and Don's Santa Monica home.


Mose at The Getty in LA with a view of the city.


The girl with a horse. A very large horse, at The Getty.


Josh and I ate twice one night in La's Koreatown. Noodles and barbeque.



On the beach in Santa Monica.


The graffiti on Venice Beach is epic.  Artists are constantly making new signs. They all have a city permit.


Even on the trees.


Henna tattoos on Venice Beach.


Down the beach in San Clemente. Beautiful town.


At the San Clemente pier for oysters and fish tacos.


Mose gets his first skateboard, dude.


Down in LaJolla, Ca at the Tower 23.


The Children's Pool full of harbor seals in La Jolla. So cool. This is our Disney Land.



Tower 23 hotel. Surfers heaven.


The Ace Hotel in Palm Springs. Awesome fun! A must!!


By the pool in Palm Springs. Sure honey, I'll watch the kids.


I checked out the mid-century modern gems in PS. This Neutra was amazing.


Mathilda and Mose made lots of friends at the pool. But they always have each other.

We explored Joshua Tree Nat'l Park. Pretty amazing.


We hiked to find Skull Rock.


Mose and I thought this rock looked quite like something else. Get it?


Mose looks for a fox.

Barker Dam at Joshua Tree.


California compositions.

We took the tram up to the mountains of Palm Springs. The elevation change equals that of going from Mexico to Canada in 10 minutes. Beautiful.


We played in the snow until our sockless feet got cold.


A shop in Palm Springs.


So Southern California. Perfect.

Tower 23! My favorite hotel in San Diego - I think I might be one of their most frequent guests! Also love the tram/snow trip. Glad you had fun! How far is Joshua Tree from PS? We should include that next time we go.
Love,
Gideon
