Since Monday was President’s Day, I had a day off work. Turned out to be a pretty eventful day!
Hiking back, we found that this duck couple was busy having their afternoon snack!
I was glad to discover that my hiking stamina is pretty good, although this particular hike was a short and easy one. I didn’t even break a sweat! The hardest part was the hike back, which consisted of a lot of uphill trekking, but it was definitely not bad at all. Table tennis and wushu has paid off! Now I’m ready and excited to try out some harder hikes.
Following the hike and a brief afternoon breather, we proceeded to LACMA. A perk of President’s Day being on a Monday is that LACMA observes Target Free Holiday Mondays. Entrance to the museum was absolutely free, given that you still have to pay for parking, of course.
One of the current exhibitions is “Fashioning Fashion: European Dress in Detail, 1700–1915,” which will be at LACMA from October 2, 2010–March 27, 2011. I was extremely excited to discover this was on exhibit during our visit! I absolutely love vintage European fashion.
The “Larry Fink: Hollywood, 2000–2009″ exhibition, which runs February 13, 2011–April 3, 2011, was also in the same building as “Fashioning Fashion.”
This was also my first time visiting LACMA, so it was a fun day of firsts.
