This is Day 5. We leave San Diego this morning and head back up the coast. We stop in Huntington Beach and walk over to enjoy the ocean for a short time. The beaches are wide and they have a paved walkway that runs parallel to the beach for bikers and walkers. That is so cool! We wish we had our bikes!!!!

We eat lunch at a little taco shop (we are eating a LOT of fish and shrimp tacos!). We finally arrive back at Los Angeles and head inland toward Hollywood.  The mountains in the background of LA are beautiful. The freeways are multi lanes and FAST.... scary at times.  SO many people. And the power grids and plants and power lines are huge and they are everywhere!

After driving for an hour into the heart of Los Angeles we find Hollywood Boulevard. We find a place to park and walk to the Hollywood Mall. It is a beautiful multi-leveled outdoor mall with escalators and steps everywhere climbing up 5 stories.  You can see the Hollywood sign from the walkways and so we make sure we capture a couple of pictures there. We eat at a New Orleans style Gumbo Hut restaurant. We visit several of the little shops in the mall and then pick up a desert to eat while we watch the colored water show on the lower level.

We then leave and walk the Walk of Fame, observing all the crazy costumes that people are dressed in. Spiderman, Batman, Godzilla and even one guy wearing just his underwear, a sword and a HUGE head of frizzy hair.

We leave Hollywood Boulevard and head out of town, not really knowing which direction we are going for a little bit and end up in Beverly Hills. BEAUTIFUL houses and streets of course, reminds us of Biltmore Forest.

We finally arrive an hour later in Woodland Hills, California to spend the night at a super nice place.
