Summer Solstice at the Griffith Observatory

Last Saturday was the Summer Solstice, the longest day of the year. Edward and I decided to make a day of it–little did we know that half of Los Angeles had the same idea…

So we wandered around a little bit, took a hike up the mountain looking for the best view of the “HOLLYWOOD” sign, and then took in the exhibits.

I posted on FaceBook that I’ve been orbiting around Edward for a six years now…so true. He’s my anchor, and I always keep coming back.

We brought along picnic fixin’s and stopped in a park to dine.


Sushi! My favorite!



Well, I went back to the truck for something, and when I turned around we had a visitor. Needless to say, I was slightly alarmed…

Mmmm…what else is there that these people might have thrown away? (Photo by Edward)

I think I’ll just hang out here for a while because these seems like cool folks…(Photo by Edward)

In the end it turned out to be an incredible experience. Since the coyote seemed at ease with humans, I kicked a bone that was on the lawn in his direction and he went over to investigate. I went back to the table, and we watched him play with the bone, then eventually meander off.

Both Edward and I felt gratitude for the encounter. Here’s the only picture I got off with my new lens (that did not like the low level of light in the Park.)
