Night Hawks – Olvera Street, Chinatown, and Union Station

Our first night hawks outing of 2016 ended up being a GREAT start to the year!  We went on a Sunday night, so things were actually still open while we were down there!  When we went last year on a weeknight a lot of the shops had already closed.  However, this year, Mike and I checked out Olvera Street, which was still busy when we got there!  We haven’t been down there before, and it’s the oldest part of downtown LA, so there is a lot of history to take in!  There are lots of little shops all through Olvera Street and everything was SO colorful!  Chinatown was wonderful, too, as was Union Station!  It really was a great way to start the new year!

I have to give Mike credit for this next picture, because as we were walking to Union Station, he noticed this.  Whether intentional or unintentional, it made for a good shot!
