July Weekend Roadtrip

It has probably been at least two years since I have last visited Southern California.  Two weekends ago, we decided on a spontaneous roadtrip down I-5 to LA.  It was a much overdue visit, and a much greater needed getaway.

We started driving at 4:00 am on a full tank and without needing to stop for gas or bathroom breaks (thankfully!), we arrived at downtown LA at 9:15 am for my favourite breakfast/brunch spot, +Bottega Louie, just blocks away from my alma mater +FIDM.  How I wished they opened during my years there!

We stayed at +The Langham Huntington in Pasadena, chosen for its English heritage, elegant style, location, location, location, and of course, their proprietary Afternoon Tea with Wedgwood.  Although it was only one night, we made use of our two full days and ventured from Beverly Hills to Anaheim, and did not start driving back to SF until after dinner at 7:00 pm, getting back half hour after midnight on Sunday!

Hope you enjoy this slideshow of photos to sum up our weekend:
