Our dear friends the Strodes were our third round of guests this spring. We started the trip off with a drive up the Malibu coast to visit the campus of Pepperdine and take in the views.
Our second day began with a pit stop at In-N-Out to energize ourselves for a day of walking around Hollywood and Beverly Hills.We had a lot of fun visiting a variety of tourist attractions and posing for some pretty corney pictures.
A road trip to Temecula filled our third day and also fulfilled one of the “to dos” I’d had on my California adventure wish list. We walked around the city’s old fahioned downtown before heading to Callaway vineyard. There we toured the grounds and sampled some wines. The whole area around the vineyards was so beautiful and made a wonderful backdrop for our drive. We made our way back to Pasadena for a happy-hour-sushi-feast. It was quite a delicious day!
The weather had been a little dreary for most of the trip. Luckily the final day was warm and sunny so we decided to make the most of it by spedning time at the beach. We chose to go to Venice and had the chace to do something new by exploring the original canals the area was built around.
