Los Angeles Walk - Sunday Safari

We spent more time exploring West Hollywood, Beverly Hills, Venice Beach, and Los Angeles proper during our recent weekend visit to Southern California.  We walked a lot of miles on this particular trip.

We saw this colorful display of hexagons across the street from our hotel, the Best Western in West Hollywood.
We continued to walk along the Sunset Strip and saw this angry but dry fountain.
Pink Dot featured a lovely Herbie-the-Love-Bug style Punch Bug out front.
Book Soup was a stimulating diversion.  They had a fantastic selection of reading material and the music playing in the store made browsing fun and relaxing.
We poked into Buttercake Bakery for a cupcake.  We were intrigued by the black and white cupcake.  We're big fans of black and white cookies in New York.  LA's cupcake version were quite scrumptious.
We strode over a sidewalk square commemorating the Sunset Strip.
Orange trees and cacti graced the front yards of the local residents.
I giggled when we found ourselves on Melrose Place.  It looks much less tawdry than it did in the TV show.  There wasn't a backstabber or vixen to be found anywhere.
We continued our walk from West Hollywood to Beverly Hills and passed the Pacific Design Center.  I loved the shocking electric blue building and larger than life furniture on the lawn.
Yellow flowers graced the curb.  
We finally arrived in Beverly Hills.
The Beverly Hills Civic Center and City Hall featured fabulous Art Deco architecture.
It was a hot day for a walk so we stopped at Il Cono Gelateria for a cool and refreshing treat (lemon and watermelon flavored gelato).
We took the bus from Beverly Hills to the Farmer's Market near Hollywood.
The baked goods looked divine.
We opted to try the gargantuan napolean at T&Y Bakery.
The mix of goods was eclectic and included a store devoted entirely to stickers.
This car struck me as very "LA" and I needed to take a snap.
We took the bus (yes, LA does have public transportation) from the Farmer's Market back to our hotel in West Hollywood.  I liked this "Let's Make a Deal" sign gracing the front of a local garden shop.
Our next stop was the George C. Page Museum and the La Brea Tar Pits.  
While oozing ground isn't super attractive to look at, it's amazing at the history the tar pits preserve.  More than 3 million fossils have been found in this small area that is now engulfed by an urban metropolis.
An impressive assortment of prehistoric mammals are on display in the museum including the woolly mammoth with its curvaceous tusks!

We walked over 5.5 miles in our whirlwind tour of LA.

Before heading to the airport, we stopped in Venice Beach to admire the faux canals.
Rusty flamingoes?  They've got 'em.
It's amazing how much ground you can cover when you spend a weekend exploring a city -- even one as spread out as LA.
