Los Angeles, the city of stars…And really screwed up drivers. OMG, the freeways were insane. Foe the first time ever driving I got disoriented on direction (north,south etc) We took 4 hours to drive to LA from Yuma and another 3 hrs navigating the crazy roads to find a suitable place to stay. (And cheap) If you want to stay next to the ocean it actually costs you 800 bucks a night min. Sheesh!
So we find a place, turns out to be near the airport (Same one Kim stayed at once) and they had some nice tours from there. We booked a 5 hr drive tour for the next day then went to Denny’s for supper. For me, being in Tinseltown was a thrill. Everyone knows how much I love Hollywood and entertainment. Well, I achieved a milestone, I walked on the stars walk of fame and I saw the Hollywood sign. I was in heaven.
We were then taken to the famous Farmers Market. A huge
outdoor/indoor market place that was started in 1939 and is a huge hub of activity. Turns out it is right across the road from CBS Television city where the price is right is filmed and the big bang theory. I know right…Wow. Didn’t see any stars though. We were told that several of them venture into the market during the day for lunch. Sorry Dave Johnston, no picture of me and Penny!!
After the market we went to Beverly Hills, Rodeo Drive, Santa Monica, Marina Del Ray then home. What a whirlwind day that was. When the tour ended and we were back at the hotel it was 6:30pm, just enough time for a quick shower then dinner and bed!!
So there we are. Yes, I can say I have been to LA. I can also say that I have no need to go there again (unless I am rich enough to have someone drive me from place to place. Ha Ha. Everyone should go there at least once though.
I will add a Gallery tomorrow of the pictures, there are so many. We saw so many famous points and took pictures of them. That’s it for now, have fun….
