busy at the Getty

The Getty Center sparkled with bright sunshine, though it seemed to add little warmth on that hill with the wind whipping in from the ocean in the visible distance. Still, the air was so clear the views all around were spectacular. By the time we arrived, one of the employees told us, the parking lot had filled, the first time this has happened on a day that we have visited. The folks in town for the Rose Bowl Parade flock to the Getty, apparently, during the week between Christmas and New Year’s, making it a very popular attraction at this time.

The chill in the air obviously did not keep away very many visitors. Although I saw a scant few in SoCal clothing, most were bundled up, like me, in coats, hats and scarves. I had two pashminas wrapped around my coat and legs to keep me warm in the wheelchair, which can get quite cold because of the lack of any body motion. My steaming green tea is helping me to thaw since we arrived home a couple of hours ago.

We got to see the rest of an exhibit we visited the weekend before Christmas, and all in all it was a wonderful time both viewing the exhibit and watching the many families.

  1. Sweet…I love that place, though my favorite is the original on PCH, the Italian Villa replica with the Italian herb garden they change each season to reflect what would be used in Italy back in the day. (whenever that was) Something about being over the ocean…at the beach…with such wonderful art…I just love it, though the new getty is also amazing and I’ve been several times whenever my parents or someone comes into town.
