Los Angeles Downtown Day

This week I combined several of my favorite things in to one memorable day.  Here are Five Faves from just that ONE DAY in Downtown Los Angeles, my contribution to Friday Fave Fives with Susanne.

1.  I spent the whole day with a very dear friend.


2.  I rode the train.

3.  I walked. And walked. And walked. More than 20,000 steps according to my pedometer.

4.  Although my friend has spent many years living in the LA area, she had never walked or even known about many areas in downtown Los Angeles. So. I led her on a walking tour.


Bradbury Building
which is famous for appearing in lots of movies


Bells of  Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels


Who knew there were hidden monuments all over downtown?


The Million Dollar Theatre


Steps across the street from Riordan Library

5.  The compelling reason for us to meet 'halfway' was just to spend time together and encourage each other.  Which we did.  It was a day full of blessings!

I enjoy walking tours, a lot. It is the right speed for me to really see the sights. Seeing your LA walking tour was a lot of fun. How special that you and your friend spent the day together. 20,000 steps? Wowzer. I bet you were tired the next day.
Enjoy the long weekend. I am going to visit my grand kids on Monday.

When we were in Los Angeles, besides the City hall I didn't see any center it was all so spread out. We ended up in Hollywood, there was something to see (not so much) lol !
