What to Do In Glendale, California

Don't ask me why we booked a hotel in Glendale, California. It's not close to anything Hollywood. Parking, Internet access, and mini bar cost extra. And if you're not in town to see the Rose Bowl Parade, the place is pretty sleepy.

The girls and I walked around a nearby outdoor shopping plaza. Dug the outdoor chandelier hanging over the street on a string. Loved the gold gilded statute in the middle of the fountain park. There was a break in the smog that day. Could actually see over the mountains into La La Land which was pretty amazing. Street car conductor didn't want his picture taken, so he ducked right when I aimed the camera. Didn't have enough battery power to get more shots, so the photograph with the sunset at the end of the video is from a beach in Europe. In a fix, improvise, I always say.

Lots of trendy shops and people claiming to scout for models. Yeah, the girls got the come on to fly to New York for hair and makeup. Could be legit....probably not. I've seen this play before, but we shall see, we shall see.
