Recently we had the opportunity to visit Southern California, specifically Palm Springs and Los Angeles! The timing couldn't have been more perfect, since this winter is about to kill both of us. We, of course, took the video camera and the resulting shots will comprise our next episode! We managed to pack a lot into the short time we were there, including visiting the set of "Hot in Cleveland," one of our favorite TV shows, and watching them rehearse for that evening's taping, a visit to Oceanic Arts, possibly the greatest store ever, shooting, eating and drinking at the newly opened Tonga Hut Palm Springs, seeing friends both old and new and soaking up the sun (and margaritas)! It was amazing and I can't wait to go back, one day permanently. I just wasn't made for these northeastern winters.
A few California highlights:
Cabazon, CA. I think this dinosaur was more scared of us than we were of him.
