This Week on 'Visiting' -- Idyllwild, Vintage Trailers and the Ladies of Hollywood
Monday @ 7:30PM -- "Aerial L.A"
Have you ever wondered how news crews get such good shots from a helicopter? How they can zoom in on a backyard while flying in a machine that rattles your teeth? Well, Huell goes in the air with Helinet to see the latest in cutting edge helicopter mounted cameras. You'll be amazed at how close they really can get and you may never walk around in your underwear in your backyard again!
Tuesday @ 7:30PM -- "Ferguson's Shells"
Huell's off to Wilmington to visit Ferguson's Marine Specialties, which is owned and operated by Ralph Ferguson and his daughter, Lupe. Once inside, Huell is literally surrounded by beautiful seashells from all over the world. Ferguson's has a wonderful, authentic, old-time feel to it.
Wednesday @ 7:30PM -- "Idyllwild"
Located 5,300 feet up in the San Jacinto Mountains above Palm Springs, Idyllwild offers a well-balanced mixture of natural, cultural and historic wonders.
Thursday @ 7:30PM -- "Tear Drop"
Step back in time with Huell as he visits a weekend gathering of classic teardrop trailers. A little more than eight feet long, they sleep two and have a built-in kitchen on the back. Some were built by various manufacturers, but many were lovingly built or restored by hand from plans in a Popular Science magazine.
Friday @ 7:30PM -- "Hollywood Ladies"
Huell visits with five ladies who were all actresses in the 40s and who have remained friends and walked together every Saturday for 50 years.
Thousands of Haitian refugee families continue to be stranded in Tijuana, a city far from where they hoped would be their final destination. Since their arrival, photojournalist Omar Martínez has been documenting their Mexican lives.
Hsi Lai Temple is the largest Buddhist monastery in Southern California. Opened in 1988, it is also home to one of the best vegetarian buffets in L.A. County. But of course, they don’t advertise that. Still, all visitors, regardless of faith, are welcome.
Roughly 90 years later, the legacy of San Luis Obispo's Motel Inn still stands, along with part of the original building.
