On Saturday we went off in quest of Castle filming locations. My kids are allowed to watch an edited version of the show. It’s the only show we watch so they think it’s pretty keen. 🙂
Our first stop was Grand Hope Park where they film the swing scenes. They bring in their own swing set, however. Still fun, though.
Other parts of the park.
The all important trip to Coffee Bean. 🙂
More play time at the park before leaving for the bookstore.
We then made our way over to Skid Row to go to a bookstore (I had to throw that location in for my non-LA friends so they can be impressed at my bravery. ;))
The Last Bookstore is an incredible bookstore in LA. It’s worth the drive, but make it on a Saturday or Sunday. The traffic in the area is bad enough then, I can’t imagine what it would be like on a weekday. If I had known just how awesome it was I’d have taken a list with me. As it was I filled out my Temeraire series, a feat I cannot complete at B&N or the library, and found a SoCal garden book for $1.
As we got off the freeway when we arrived, Mr. Great-heart saw a sign for a Target, so, of course, we had to check it out. Pretty nice. It’s Target, what else is there to say, except that there is a parking structure which makes it cooler than ours. 😀
Our next trip will be back to LA, hopefully, to see the Pompeii exhibit at the California Science Center.
