point vicente + lacma

While visiting my grandparents in southern california, jacob and I went out exploring for a day. We didn't really have specific plansjust a few maps and some binoculars. We went wherever the wind blew us.

 we started at point vicente to see the beautiful lighthouse and look for whales.
For this purpose, my grandpa lent us his binoculars.

and lucky us! we actually saw some gray whales passing by on their migration to mexico. 
It was pretty surreal.

After whale-watching at point vicente, we headed up to L.A. for some museum action. We started at the la brea tar pits museum (AKA the museum they visit in the movie Encino Man) and then we headed over to one of my favorite museums, the LACMA. 

we strolled through a number of galleries and found ourselves playing in some of the art.

 It was a great time to enjoy the heat + sights + culture + be completely carefree before heading back to Provo for a new semester.
