Not everyone wants to see a museum of old signs, but I DO!!! Apparently, so did many, many others. You must take a tour of the facility and sign up on the hour. Most of the people on the tour wanted to hear the history of the old neon signage and it's provenance, but there were a few rebels at the end of the line that were there to take photos. Our "group" had the most fun, I think, and shouted "we're coming"..."carry on"...."go ahead!".....the guides don't particularly like it, but we persisted. The Professor was in the attentive group and got all the history, so if you ever need to know.....:)
Tons of fabulous signs from a bygone era. Hope the preservation society manage to save all the rest.
This is not located in a particularly "swish" part of town and it's not advisable to walk...guess this duck says it all! Not sure if he wants In or Out!
Another odd thing to do in Vegas!

As we sat atop the rise at Redondo Beach listening to the sea and watching all sorts of beach activity, we began to wonder about the jutting landscape yonder, and what could be just around the bend in the road.
Turns out it's Palos Verdes.
The view from the other side! Looking towards LA
Very high up and far away....look at this guy!
And THESE guys!
How high up and no barrier you say?......Yikes
This might be one of the most wonderful views in California! Wonder who lives there?
Since the Professor is not fond of heights he was staying closer to the curb and tempted me with this shot. His was better, but I tried.

As we sat at the top of the hill at Redondo Beach listening to the sea sounds and taking a little quiet break, off in the distance, I spied a Blimp.
The Goodyear Blimp!
I wished he would come our way.
I think the pilot knew I would wave to him as he floated soundlessly overhead.
It's quite magical really.
