Emily drives us down to Santa Barbara. Along the route we are mostly surrounded by agricultural land, it looks a lot like England. We lose hwy 1 at one point as its so poorly marked on the road, so we take a detour around more of the fields! Santa Barbara is lovely. Spanish designed town with lots of shops and restaurants and delis. We stop at the Savoy cafe which is really good. The staff are really friendly, foods good and the "Kathy's killer krunch brownie" was amazing!
Next it's my shift to drive down to Santa Monica and then to our hotel in L.A
We got slightly confused leaving Santa Monica and what was meant to be a 10 min drive to our next hotel in Marina Del Rey took about an hour. Once we'd dumped our stuff at the hotel we headed for Venice beach. Lots of shops selling t-shirts and medical marajuana. Dinner was at Enterprise co. a really cool seafood restaurant and bar. We shared the calamari starter and a 2 lb lobster with grilled veg and fries. Delicious!
After dinner we decided to drive around Hollywood for an hour on a night tour but once again we got a bit lost and ended up circling the streets for about 3 hours. We had a good night tour of Griffith park though...
