LA part two.... hollywood & venice beach

This was a loooooong day... we did the Hollywood bus tour that is highly recommended if you want to do and see everything and you have little time to do it in. We did the Star Line hop on hop off tour that picked us up only a few blocks from our hotel. We toured all through the Hollywood hills, beverly hills, the walk of fame, down town and heaps more little hot spots that we never would have found in our short LA stop.

After a lot of hopping on and off we got back to the lovely Santa Monica pier and hired some bikes and rode down to Venice beach and back to watch the sunset over the ocean. {great suggestion from friend Estelle back home} Finally some late night shopping to kill time before dinner and drinks at the britannia pub to watch the unfortunate loss of North Melbourne in the first round of finals {I have to add that first bounce for us was at 10.15pm.} The owner was kind enough to give us full control of his telly and also came over to watch part of the game. Strangely enough it came up in conversation that he is actually mates with Mr Wayne Carey and has a photo with him up in the pub... soooo him and Steve had much to talk about while I flicked through some H&M & Nordstrom catalogues deciding on what to buy on the way back {It wasn't much of a decision though, I think I might just get the lot}.... one very long day indeed.
