________________________ Hey Adventurers! ? We have so much in store for our final day exploring Los Angeles ? To keep with the trend, we will continue our trek Westward and hit the coast for one last hurrah ? Santa Monica, Pacific Palisades, and Malibu here we come! ⛱☀️ Who wants to ride shotgun??? ______________________________________________________ Georgian Hotel | Los Angeles, California | c. 1933 • Built in 1933, the Georgian Hotel was designed to be an intimate hideaway, catering to Los Angeles’ high society. At the time of its development, it was nestled in a heavily-wooded shoreline of the little-known seaside community of Santa Monica. The vision of Attorney and Judge, Harry J. Borde, the hotel showcased the Romanesque Revival and Art Deco architecture, and was among the first skyscrapers to call Ocean Avenue home • As time passed, the basement restaurant of the Georgian earned a great deal of attention. One of the last strongholds of the Prohibition Era, it was considered a true Speakeasy, which hosted the likes of “Bugsy” Siegel, Clark Gable, Roscoe “Fatty” Arbuckle, Carole Lombard, and dozens of other film stars and industry moguls • In the 1940s and 1950s, Santa Monica was taken by a technological and industrial boom, led by the Donald Douglas Aircraft Factory. Guests calling the hotel their temporary LA home included aircraft designers, servicemen during WWII, and gamblers who would take a motorboat offshore to spend an evening aboard the casino barges anchored a few miles offshore in Santa Monica Bay • The eight-story hotel was, for many years, one of the tallest structures in Santa Monica. Its striking look advertised Santa Monica as a modern and beautiful place to be. Today it stands out both as a monument to the city’s long tradition as a tourist and leisure destination and to the golden age of Art Deco • ?: @lovelyindeed ✍: @wikipedia + smconservancy.org + @georgianhotelsm • #AccidentallyWesAnderson #WesAnderson #VscoArchitecture #Vsco #AccidentalWesAnderson #GeorgianHotel #SantaMonica #TheGeorgian #LosAngeles #California #DiscoverLA #AccidentallyLA

“During a road trip through North Iceland last September, we took out our drone. We weren’t expecting good shots, but the wind was really fresh and calm. Everything looked different from the air as from the ground. Only from above can you start to see how far the meandering lines of the river stretch, how nature’s smaller patterns form grander patterns.” Want to see more of Iceland from the air?
