Date Night

For Wes’ last night here we decided to head up to the Griffith Observatory in Griffith Park. Wes had never been and I hadn’t been since before the remodel and reopening, so we bought tickets and headed out to Hollywood.

We ended up parking at the Hollywood and Highland shopping center and taking the shuttle up to the observatory. Inside we got to see all the new space exhibits downstairs, including a stop with Mr. Einstein which I particularly enjoyed.

We visited the exhibits and then went outside onto the roof. There is nothing quite like being able to see all of Los Angeles. The observatory is pretty impressive, and you get a great view of the Hollywood sign. After a little bit, we were ready to head back down the mountain.

We took the shuttle back to Hollywood and Highland and had a really delicious dinner at The Grill on Hollywood. We were skeptical, but the food was really, really good and we’re definitely planning on going back.

Tomorrow Wes is taking off for Kansas. While I’m looking forward to having a bit more knitting time, I know after a few hours I’m going to miss him more than ever. I can’t wait until we don’t have to do this any more.
