The Getty Museum

I found myself in beautiful (hu?!) Glendora on a freezing (for Southern California in April) Saturday morning to pick up the perfect barstools for my new place. Since I had just driven two hours up there just to get them, I decided…let’s go to the Getty! So to The Getty we went…

This sweet little pale boy with a frog greeted me after I got off the tram. His mother really should’ve told him to put some pants on.

Have you guys been to The Getty? I’ve lived in San Diego for YEARS. And this was my first time there. The museum is totally free, you just have to pay $15 for parking. No problemo! You park, then get on a tram that winds you up the LA hillside to top where the gorgeous museum sits. It really sets the stage for what’s up there. And reminded me of when my dad took my sister and I to Disneyland when we were real little and we stayed at Disneyland Hotel and took the tram into Disneyland every day. (more coffee? hahaaa!)

So the tram stops, this sweet little boy greets me. I’m so glad I didn’t climb up those “stairs”. Because those “stairs” are really part of the exhibit and I’m pretty sure an alarm would’ve gone off and a white-haired guard would’ve come out to put me in the brig. Behind The Boy with a Frog was the amazing museum. Different buildings with gorgeous architecture and beautiful gardens surrounding them. I asked the clouds to be beautiful and puffy in my pictures, and they decided to say yes. Thank you, clouds.

The exhibits inside were very nice. I didn’t even make it into all buildings, and I was totally okay with that. Because my favorite part was outside.

Yes, I’m fully aware I just threw a bunch of pictures at you. But look how pretty it was there! I couldn’t help it. Just be glad I didn’t put up the 3 minute video of the tram ride! Can you say boring? (but a cool video, not gonna lie) So, everyone should come visit me so I can take you to the Getty! (You just can’t stay with me unless you like to sleep on couches, ’cause that’s all I gots, yo.) We can even have a picnic on the lawn. And possibly go and check out a few paintings while we’re there. But most importantly…look at the water labyrinth, walk through the lavish gardens and gaze at Los Angeles from the top of the world! Funny how LA is so pretty from up there.

    Wow. I’ve never been to the Getty (I know, I know, what kind of Southern Californian am I, right?)…but I feel like I just went. Gorgeous pics!
