Culver City Trip



What a fantastic short trip we had in Culver City. We flew in Friday afternoon and flew back Saturday afternoon. We ate, drank - a little too much and partied through the evening. We really didn't leave the hotel to do any sightseeing since it was such a quick trip and we were all tired. We still however managed to get some interesting photos of which I will be posting through this coming week.

The above photo is a shot of downtown Culver City and was taken through the hotel room window. There were from what I could see many little strip malls and so many palm trees that you just felt like you should be drinking Mai Tai's and Chi Chi's. The weather was perfect as was the entire trip.




I wanted to get a shot of the Culver City sign for you so I snapped this while on the complimentary hotel shuttle back to LAX. Of course, when I snapped the shot there was no car in view. I obviously need a new camera with a faster speed :)

I will have much more including some photos and video from the concert which was simply HOT!

That is it for now. I have to go get ready to relax and watch the Grammy's. Although, my eyes will be focused on the audience even more so this year because our own Sony Holland will be there. She's not receiving an award, maybe next year but she will be attending the show and an after party or two :) I'm so excited for her.

Wait a minute now, Jo, what about me...did I drink that much champagne or was it the Grey Goose martini or maybe the Patron reposado margarita BEFORE the show....I never saw a Margiedale, wayward or otherwise! What have you got up your sleeve? I know I can't trust you with that damn camera...er, darn camera.

I grew up in Culver City (5-12) and my Grandparents lived on the border. I know the place quite well. It is really fantastic to see it through a "tourists" eyes.

It's Sony, not Sonny and yes she is like a Sister to me. I love all my friends. The Grammy's were held on the 31st.

stjs, I wish I had more time to do some sightseeing but we were only there about 24 hours.The Radisson though kept us happy and comfortable to it was fine. I love the fact that it is so close to the airport as well. Thanks for taking the time to read and comment.
