Does Malibu sell "L.A. dogs"?

"Tip the world over on its side and everything loose will land in Los Angeles."
~Frank Lloyd Wright

When I head to LA, I normally end up in the Downtown area for most of the time. Give me a weekend of the flower market, fashion district, Pershing Square and Grand Central Market and I'm a happy girl!
It's been a long time since I've visited the city of angels, though, and I sure miss it.

 Well I'll be heading north this weekend, but this time I'm getting to know a new area. I'm visiting the Getty Villa in Malibu! Instead of graffiti and sombreros cruising the pavement, I'll be spending time with the flip flops and Bentleys cruising by the sand.  :)

Of course with a city like Los Angeles just a short drive away from my home, I must have a wish list of things to do/see in the LA area, right?  "But Natalia," you may say "whatever is on this famous wish list?"   Grab a pen and paper, kiddies. You'll want to take notes ;-)

*visit Frank Lloyd Wright's houses (Hollyhock is #1, Ennis is #2!)
*visit Neutra houses
*Roscoe's Chicken & Waffles
*The Pantry (I've tried to go a bunch of times, but the line is always so long... must be great!)
*Queen Mary (preferably at night time!)
*Amoeba Records
*Hollywood Bowl with picnic food in hand
*Hollywood Forever cemetery for movie or concert
*camping at the Channel Islands
*take in the views on Angel's Flight
*Getty Villa (soon to be crossed off!! yay!)
*Malaga Cove @ Palos Verdes
*Lake Shrine Temple in the Pacific Palisades
*Rock Store (the food sounds filling and yummy!)
*Cinerama Dome

The list grows constantly, but that's it for now :)

    I'm really looking forward to dusting off the camera. It's been too long! I'll be sure to post some pics after this weekend for everyone!
