Current weather in Los Angeles, California:

My wife got sent for a several day business trip to Los Angeles in November of 2001. Since the weather was already starting to suck in Chicago the weater in LA is usually nice I was happy to join her.

While there I took in some of the sights in Hollywood but since I had been there before I didn't spend much time there. But, I really enjoyed my visits to the La Brea Tar Pits and doing some scuba diving off Santa Catalina Island.

Aquarium of the Pacific

Aquarium of the Pacific
I went to San Pedro to pick up my rental scuba gear for diving near Catalina the next day so it was just a short ride over the bridge to Long Beach. The only thing I visited there was the Aquarium of the Pacific.

The other highlight of my trip to LA was scuba diving off Catalina Island. I had never been diving off the coast of California so was really looking forward to it. I was NOT disappointed!
