(Then again, I suppose, when do I not get away for the weekend? :-P)
I took a little trip to the secret stairs in Silverlake. They’re not very secret at all, in that there’s a book about them, an app, and who knows what else.
I found the app very helpful! It says out loud turn-by-turn directions (with helpful little asides and facts!). As I’ve proven time and time again, I’m not great at maps. So, the app was quite enjoyable.
The stairs were pretty. There were some fun places for pictures. (There are still multiple staircases I need to climb in Silverlake and in Pasadena – there’s so much to do in LA!)
Also on this weekend, I went to the zoo. (For some reason, I bought a membership during my trip back during the holidays, and it’s nice that I’m getting use out of it!)
The dinosaur exhibit was pretty fun! One even squirted water on you!
And that basically covers the weekend.
I threw in a birthday party, and saw a couple of friends.
It was a grand lil’ whirlwind trip!
