Griffith Park and Farmers Market

2-11-10
We left Carlsbad at 8:30 AM and arrived at the Santa Ana Elks Lodge about 10:00 AM.
After setting up the motorhome we took a little rest and then had lunch.
After lunch we headed for Griffith Park and the Griffith Observatory. From the Observatory one can see the Hollywood sign.













The James Dean monument is there too.












While we were there a photographer took pictures of some kind of models.












On a clear day down town Los Angeles can be seen. Today it was hazy.














After visiting the observatory and checking out the displays, we left and drove to the Farmers Market.
When we lived in Los Alamitos, while I was working for McDonnel Douglas/Boeing, we did a lot of sightseeing in Los Angeles and surrounding areas.
The Farmers Market has changed a lot. We had Chinese food. There are all kind of outdoor restaurants, from many different countries.















Next to the old market is "The Grove", a fancy shopping mall, with expensive stores, and nice restaurants. They even have a trolley.
