I LOVE living in Southern California!
There is inspiration to be found all around, and so many wonderful sites to see.
|How fun are these wooden statues near the trail leading up to the bell?|
I have passed by the Korean Friendship Bell in Palos Verdes many times, and always tell myself I need to stop there. Were usually with family & are doing the coastal drive into LA ~ or possibly to Trump National area for a day hike...so just hadn't added this stop to our list yet.
I work in San Pedro for a few days a month, and just happened to have an hour free for lunch.
I grabbed a sandwich from a nearby Deli, and drove up the hill to eat my meal. I was sure glad that I did!
The views from the park were amazing, and the pavilion & bell were stunning.

|This is some of the wonderful paint & decoration inside the pavillion.|
As if on que, a group was practicing martial arts in the park just beside the bell...I should have put down my sandwich and joined them :-)
Many others before me have photographed the Bell, and you can find other amazing images by clicking here!
