A trip downtown LA and lunch




It wasn't a field trip but rather a number of destinations. First, the pottery place you could see off the freeway - sort of at the corner of the 110 (Harbor Freeway) and the 91 (Artesia Freeway). You can see it but couldn't get there from here. I have this friend who never says never. ZoeAnn found it.

You can see by the "end " of the road sign that it is not an easy place to find.

Colorful


Artistically inspiring. Then we hit the freeway and headed downtown.

We went to shop for fabric. One never has enough fabric. This is Michael Levines, a downtown LA institution. We went to the "by the pound " loft space - bargains you don't need but buy.

And then there are the streets in the fashiob/garment/fabric district
You often wonder just what country you are actually in - but that is another story.

Then we went for lunch - food is always part of the adventure.
Is this not the most fabulous name for a restaurant?

We had a great lunch, sitting outside, on an island between 2 busy streets. We watched the tour bus arrive at the Orpheum Theater - who knows who was actlually arriving and getting ready to perform on friday evening. This photo is of the back side - the colors and form.


And, we saw this food vendor on the way to our car - we could have eaten here, but didn't

Check out the sign



On retreiveing the car at our roof top parking garage, these where the vistas.

and There are many parts to these adventures. The participants, the itinerary, the food -( lunch is always a part) and the intention. Whatever the intention for this day, we had a great time. As my mother in law used to say - a good time was had by all.

I so miss you guys and I miss going to the fabric district in Los Angeles. There is a little one here in Dallas, but it doesn't even compare.
