Even though we're less than two hours from Los Angeles, we don't get down there very often, mainly because of the dogs. I hate leaving them alone all day, and it's a lot of trouble to board them. But we happened to have a dog-sitter Saturday, so we took advantage of it and went for a drive.

I hope you enjoyed my mini-tour of LA. I'm sure there will be more in the future.
Where do you like to shop? I'd love to hear about it!
