California Trip - Day 3

September 20, 2021

 If you missed the beginning of our California trip, you can read about Day 1 Here, and Day 2 Here.

The next day we got up early and had our breakfast and then we were off to the Getty Center museum.  I had to make a reservation ahead of time with the ticket to visit the Getty Center, plus admission is free.

We had to take a tram up the mountain to see the museum.  The museum is located on beautiful land and you can see art exhibits, architecture, and a beautiful garden.  We enjoyed our morning exploring the museum.  Below you will see photos of the pretty flowers and garden.

Once we finished our outing at the museum we worked up an appetite for lunch.

Our friend recommended we have lunch at the restaurant Sugarfish.  The sushi is great and below I have some photos of our delicious lunch.

We spent the afternoon relaxing by the pool.  My husband took a nap and I enjoyed listening to the relaxing music and reading my book.  I had Smoky the cat by my side.  Our friend has the most beautiful pool and I felt like I was at a resort.  It was a delightful way to spend the afternoon. 

We decided to visit the Santa Monica Pier that evening.  It was a gorgeous night for the pier and fun to walk around.

We enjoyed looking at the beach and seeing the sunset for the night.

We enjoyed another fun day in California.  Stay tuned for the last part of our trip.
