Today is a rest day so it was a late start so no in house breakfast so its off to brunch at Black Bear Diner and then to do the laundry. The diner was great and a little less busy although they were a different crowd being the working week lunch folk. The food was delicious as usual but the onion rings and ranch dressing are something else. Pauline our server (who was particularly awesome) suggested we should have a look at San Fernando ...
So only four days to go and today was LA. We'd been preparing ourselves for this ride for some time, to the extent that we hadn't really considered the other possible destinations and attractions of Southern Cal.

These important parts of California, the United States, are conserved in perpetuity because one family owned this costal land. Therefore, it didn't get developed. It didn't become Long Beach, it didn't become San ...
... Sign. It's really lovely up there and all around the Hollywood and Highland Centre. There are water fountains in the middle and the ground is paved with little stories about people who've found fame and fortune in Hollywood. And it's really peaceful up there.
After stopping for photos, we did a couple of shops in the centre. We found a shop that was geek-heaven! Found merchandise for Doctor Who, Game of Thrones (not enough!), Breaking Bad, Disney and ...
