Santa Monica Pier
A personal photo collection, not a travel blog.
Santa Monica Rodeo Drive Los Angeles were regular stop off points for me between 1998 & 2005 on my way to Rio di Janeiro. My inspiration to pull out these old (poor quality early digital) photos came from watching Billy Bob Thornton in the series Goliath, which of course was shot in Santa Monica.
My great friend Denise McKay
Denise was the main reason to stop in L.A., we met when she was living on the Gold Coast & continued our friendship for a number of years after she moved back to the U.S.A.
Sadly this mural is not there anymore however the photo remains a favourite of mine.
Denise dressed to blend in with the wall. 🙂
She is one of those ladies who always looks terrific,
Lunch at Fisherman’s wharf Marina Del Ray
We had the restaurant to ourselves. 🙂
At least it will wash of in a week or so.
The only tattoos I like are the ones that wash off. 🙂
I can’t remember where I parked my car.
Oh! here is is. 🙂
Yellow matches my Mercedes Sports at home. 🙂
Classy neighbourhood & classy lady. 🙂
Back to Santa Monica
Outside the New York Deli which was one of my favourite places to eat, sadly I believe it closed in 2010.
The Central Garden at the Getty Center
There were more than 500 varieties of plants used in the landscaping of the Central Garden.
Patrezia from Salerno
We hooked up with this crazy Italian lady from Salerno, she was a lot ot fun. 🙂
Denise & Petrezia
We had a bit to talk about as it was only a year ago when I was in Salerno.
