This afternoon we had the privilege of exploring some of the world's great art found at the Getty Center located in the Santa Monica Moutains above Los Angeles. The buildings (and there are many of them) are works of art in and of themselves, perched high on the hill, as are the gardens. Parking is $15 per car at the bottom of the hill, but there is no entrance fee, and a tram/train carries you to the museums at the top of the mountains. So very much to see, and I don't take very good photos to do it justice. We spent several hours there, and barely scratched the surface of what there is to see. You can take your own picnic lunch and check it for free at the coat check while you wander (what we should have done), or you can buy your own food and snacks and souveneirs there on site. We just ate our lunch/dinner back at DS1's place afterwards. Visiting the Getty was a fine afternoon activity and I would recommend it to anyone in the LA area.
