I traveled back to California last week for work, hence my absence here on the blog.
As usual, it was a long trip with LONG work hours.
12-hour days to be exact.
We didn't have time for too much except getting dinner each night and then heading off to bed.
We were basically working on East Coast time as we usually do.
But, on our last day we did have a couple of hours and we made the most of them as we traveled from Calabasas(where we were working) to our airport hotel.
As usual, while in Calabasas we had lunch next door to the Kardashian's store DASH.
I didn't even go in this time but couldn't resist a picture for those of you who are new here.
I'm not sure anyone really goes in there and buys anything.
It's funny to watch the people drive by and takes pictures then leave.
As I've mentioned before the place is super pricey for cheap made clothing.
After lunch and a bit more work we left the office and out of the burbs.
We decided on taking Malibu Canyon from Calabasas to the beach.
A scenic drive.
When stopping at an overlook to take a picture I spotted a condom wrapper.
Nice or what?
Yes, I need a tan.
On our drive we saw signs for Paramount Ranch.
We decided to stop not knowing what it was.
It's a CA State Park now but was and still is used for filming movies and TV shows.
Movies dating back to the 1930's have been filmed in this faux Western town.
Including Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman.
Very neat for a nerd like me.
There was also a ton of hiking trails in and around the park that I would have loved to have ventured onto.
I just wonder if John Wayne was ever on this set?
Of course, I had to visit the Saloon!
It was closed.
Afterwards we headed towards the beach.
I was just waiting to see Brody Jenner, but no luck.
The houses on the beach are very nice as to be expected.
Always sunny and a little bit chilly in Malibu though.
My San Diego pal, Christina, suggested we eat at Gladstones on the beach.
Such a great view and food.
A perfect way to end a work-filled trip!
So, there you have it!
Nothing too exciting but at least we got to see 'something' and have dinner on the water.
I was exhausted when I got home, as you can imagine!
More on our weekend tomorrow!
