Sailor Babo gets a taste of the Hollywood lifestyle!

This is an extremely overdue post…we went out to L.A. back in October (!) to visit some friends but I’m just getting around to posting it now (at SBoB’s insistence, of course).

Here he is at the start of the trip.  “This is comfy…we’re flying first-class, right?…we’re not?!”

He thoroughly explored the hotel, including the strange TV-like thing by the elevators.

“What the heck is this?”

“It changes color…maybe it’s a magical new dimension for cookies!”

“Get me out of this creepy hand!”

SB - hand

“Let’s go to the pool.”

“It’s so bright – fetch me some sunglasses!”  (Laurie – I swear we took this before we saw your Hawaii vacation pics!)

Then we ventured out to get sustenance.

Then we did some shopping:

He couldn’t resist checking out the L.A. outpost of Charm City Cakes!  You may be familiar with them from the (now canceled) Ace of Cakes show on the Food Network.  🙂

The next day we visited Paramount Pictures.

We also made it to LACMA.

Where’s Sailor Babo?

There he is!

“Let’s go see some art!”

“Why is this elevator so big?”

“And why is this comb so big?”

SB- comb

“And these billiard balls?”

“Ooh, Morris Louis!”

SBoB found a Surrealist masterpiece!

“I know it says it’s not a pipe, but I’ll try smoking it anyway…”

SB- Magritte

And that concludes our trip to L.A…we had to make a rather hasty exit from the city in order to be back on the East Coast before Hurricane Sandy arrived.

    It’s nice to see that Sailor Babo is out and about and having adventures (even if they were last October). Things have been very quiet here so far this year. It seems like we’re all out of SB-related ideas. Maybe your post will inspire someone.

    I don’t know what Sailor Babo is drinking in that one shot, but I think I want it. Now.

    It was a delicious iced latte! Yeah, it’s way too quiet around here – I hope SB gets into more adventures soon!

    Babo has joined the Wild Rumpus!

    Hooray! These are great! I laughed hard at SB smoking a pipe! Well done!
    Sailor and Little Babo just got back from a cruise in the Caribbean. I’ll try to get the pics up soon!
    We made it home just in time to be safe from an ice storm!
