     Waves rolling in at Indian Beach.

    The very first thing I'll say in this post is that I wish we had taken better photos.  This is an absolutely gorgeous property, and this link will take you to the Bath Boutique Stays page, where you'll see their photos and a walkthrough video. When we arrived...

    Gracias Madre. But really.  Whoever's momma taught them to cook vegan food like this needs to be thanked.  You all know I suffer from food allergies, and going to a restaurant like this is a dream for me.  If I can have anything on the menu, including dessert, then I a...

    I discovered quickly that I love driving through the Hollywood Hills.  Coldwater Canyon and Mulholland - I'm hooked.  If you are visiting the area, definitely take some time to appreciate how truly beautiful the area is. You won't regret it.  I'll post soon on a few of...
