I had an absolutely perfect weekend!
It started off with this:
Included a trip to the Silver Lake Farmers Market for these. My flowers of choice because they dry excellent. When dried they look exactly like they do fresh. I don’t know what kind they are so if you know, please let me know!
The big climax of the weekend was hitting the Rose Bowl Flea Market. (Pasadena, California)
Two tickets for admission = $20.
Preferred parking fee = $15.
Parking next to the entrance gate = PRICELESS!!!!
Paying the up-charge for parking was money well spent. There were miles of cars and walking just to get to the stadium. Add all the miles we walked in the hot sun inside the stadium and you can see why I was so thankful to snag this parking spot.
If you haven’t ever been to Pasadena before, it is a beautiful city nestled between mountains. I call them mountains because I am from Texas. However, you may not want to call them mountains to native Angelenos. Apparently, they consider them hills!
I love the drive to and from Pasadena (from Los Angeles). It is a short 15 minute trip with attractive scenery along the way. The road is elevated at a high altitude with great views below of the city of Los Angeles.
This picture isn’t that clear because it was taken with my iPhone but you can see part of downtown Los Angeles and the valley below Highway 134.
I found so many new things at the Rose Bowl Flea Market. And a couple of great ideas! I will post and share them all soon!
