The 10th completely caught me by surprise this month! Luckily I’ve had these images from a recent trip to Olvera Street, just waiting to be blogged! Olvera Street is in the heart of downtown Los Angeles and one of the oldest streets in the city. A visit there is like stepping back into early L.A. history or perhaps even a city in Mexico! The street is closed to traffic and lined with street vendors, restaurants, beautiful foliage and delicious smells!
Before school went back, my good friend and I took a midday trip with our kids to explore this historic part of Los Angeles. The kids loved searching for treasures at all the stands!
While the adults just soaked in all the culture and color!
The kids made a wish in a fountain. . .
And we checked out some food options.
We settled for a sit down lunch, which had to include a margarita!
I love playing “tourist” in our city, and a trip to Olvera Street was a great way to spend an afternoon!
Now, go take a peek at Milwaukee Wisconsin Photographer Melissa Schuett’s site for another take on “10 on 10″!
