We have done some stuff for ourselves as well. Going to the beach, Sea World in February and a couple of days ago we went to The Getty Center in Los Angeles.
Sea World was a real treat as Virginia had some free tickets so it just cost us the gas to get there and lunch which was a shared pizza. We spent the day going to all the shows and saw Shamu the killer whale, the dolphin show, belugas, seals, flamingos, sting rays and tons of other marine animals. It was a lovely day.
The Getty is a beautiful museum/art gallery situated high on a hill above Los Angeles. It is constructed in imported travertine from Italy. The views are amazing and we saw fantastic art from all the Masters. Quite overwhelming. I will post some pictures in the next few days if I can get to the computer room here at the Clubhouse.
I am using my cell phone tethered to my computer at the house and it is not very fast. All a learning experience.....
