Franklin D. Murphy Sculpture Garden - UCLA
245 Circle Drive East, Los Angeles, CA 90095

 

Memorial Day weekend, Saturday – a thick marine layer means heavy fog at dawn that gradually thins and may burn off by late afternoon, or not.  Cool all day.  Still air.  Not a day for the beach.  The center of Hollywood and the Sunset Strip? Crowded with tourists, wondering where the sun went, hoping to bump into a movie or television star, or someone famous, so the day is not lost.  Not likely.  A day to slow down and find someplace quiet.  This place, just off Sunset Boulevard, will do.
