a beautiful blur -part II
after meeting up with k and her family and spending the night at their gorgeous home here, we woke up [not so bright and early]. safe to say it was one of the cosiest night’s sleep i’ve ever had! coffee was brewing and k had baked the most delicious zucchini bread! we pretty much cruised into the morning… just the way i like it, although i missed seeing k’s gorgeous girls, as they had already left for school. i was already feeling sad we’d only hours left to spend with k but we were going to make the most of it.
our day was planned. our mission was, of course, to visit the LA County Museum [LACMA] to see the eames lounge room set up and mid-century exhibition. quite fortuitous really, it was grey, wet and cold, perfect for a museum visit. as mentioned, k lives about an hour out of LA. we drove in, m and i in k’s car and c in her beetle.
…and welcome to LACMA. c was pretty amazing and got us straight there without a hitch. we had a fantastic afternoon. we walked, talked, laughed and admired. we had a bite to eat at the musuem café. it was all perfect, with only one minor disappointment, ‘no photographs permitted’ at the eames lounge room but you can see it here. someone [i won't mention any names] did, however, manage a sneaky ‘click’ though… shame it wasn’t me!
take a look at the grooviness that is LACMA. my favourite of all the museums we visited whilst in the US, no doubt because of the mid-century vibe on that day.
late afternoon darkness and the end of our most memorable day. it was really sad to say goodbye but we will catch up again soon k. k drove home and we [m, c and i] were to spend the night in an LA hotel.
we visited s that same evening, a gorgeous friend i actually met here at home [melbourne] through my gorgeous friend t! s was in town, coincidentally, at her home in the hollywood hills… her job finds her travelling the globe but more about that later. mx
