What a busy 3 days we have had in LA. On Thursday we headed into Hollywood on the train. Great rail system here, we could really learn a lot back at home. After getting a coffee from Starbucks (disappointed yet again, think I'll have to wait til I get home for a decent coffee) we hopped on a hop on hop off bus to tour around the sights of Hollywood and Beverley Hills. Just a hint for when you visit Hollywood, don't get your photo taken with anyone, it costs ha ha. We went to the Page Museum to see the tar pits and fossils that have been discovered, very good exhibit, great place for kids that are interested in dinosaurs. Beverley Hills was nice, very expensive. after we got back to our motel we went for dinner at a French restaurant, very nice although a bottle of pear cider was $49, needless to say I didn't get it. Jenni and I were having an alcohol free day, need it.

On Friday we caught the Catalina Express to Catalina Island, beautiful looks just like I imagine the Greek Isles do. We did an Interior Experience and went to the airport in the sky. I had a corn dog and Steve had a Bison hotdog. I wasn't feeling the best on the way over. so it was drugs (sea sickness pills) for the return trip and felt great. Would love to spend a month there just relaxing.

Once back at the motel we had time for a quick nap before heading to Buena Park for the Medieval Times Dinner and Tournament, which was good. Lots of protein to eat, no good if you are a vegetarian.

Today I was so exhausted after the last week, with no alarm I slept til 11 am, then I woke up like my eyes were stuck in the closed position. A trip down the street for shopping fixed that, new joggers, a hat and a few souvenirs for loved ones at home. Early night tonight heading off for Las Vegas at 7:30 in the morning.
