Our journey began at 2pm on Wednesday December 11 2013 as we walked to Hazelbrook station to catch the 2.30 train to the airport. We arrived at the airport at 5pm and waited for our 6pm check-in. Got stopped at security because Jay had scissors in his pencil case in his ...

We did Beverley Hills, Rodeo Dr, Sunset Blvd, Mullholland Dr, of course the Hollywood sign, Hollywood and finished the day at Santa Monica and its Pier.

Early start tomorrow the get to California Adventure Park early to make the most of the day there.
Until next ...
