Well it has been a very hectic few days!
Firstly let me advise you all Never book a Domestic Flight that only leaves you 1 hour to catch an International Flight! We were concerned about this and checked with Qantas only to be told that 1 hour is plenty of time. Our Flight left Perth late and we got held up landing in Sydney, luckily there were 42 people on our plane catching the flight to L.A. So they held the plane for us, it left an hour late!!!!!!!!!!!
But so far that has been our only major delay. L.A's weather has been fabulous. We checked into our Motel on Rodeo Drive Beverly Hills.
|A small Boutique Motel, but very nice!|
|Very Quite at 7am - Too early for the beautiful People :)|
We spotted these cars on Rodeo Drive:
Of course it looks like it this one belongs here but this one certainly didn't:
Then the second day we went on a hop on hop off tour, it was pretty good, again the weather was perfect. We walked along Hollywood Boulevard on the Star walk.
|Michael Jackson's was very popular!|
We had a nice lunch at Hooters in Hollywood and as we were seated over looking the street we were amazed how many men wanted to come in but their wives wouldn't let them? A Bit weird we thought!
Here are some of the things we seen from our double decker bus:
|The Police Cars really stand out|
|We thought this was rather amusing!|
|Of course we had to have a picture of this sign!|
- but as I get vertigo I sat them out and found nice places to rest while he enjoyed the rides. on one of these occassions I was chatted up by a very friendly guy, what do you think?
|Me and Beetle Juice!|
Shame it couldn't have been this guy:
They drove us through all the sets that they have including this one - Can you guess where it is?
|Wisteria Lane - From Desperate Housewives!|
|The House from Psycho|
|The town of Amity - From Jaws|
|Different buildings for TV shows|
|All have been used for different shows|
Of course I had to add these photo's:
As you can see, we had a great day. We got back to the motel very exhausted. But we had to go out again to get some dinner, we found this great little Pizza place 2 blocks away. But the Pizza'a were Huge, so we just asked for 2 slices each - which would have been 1 of our Pizza's at home! Check out the size of a slice!
We caught a coach today to San Diego and are going to the Zoo tomorrow, but that will be another post!
Cheer's and Happy Travels,
