Finally, here it is, the last leg of the journey home.
A wonderful few weeks in LA.
Day one, a hike in the hills.
Warner Brothers Studio Tour complete with Bugs bunny, Central Perk and amusing props.
Science Centre and Endeavour Space Shuttle – awesome time lapse movie of its last journey to watch here.
Science Centre fishies
Americans know how to do signs
A morning ride in Ojai, one rattlesnake spotted – yikes
Chilling at Santa Barbara
Building-sized Abbot Kinney, responsible for Little Venice, LA – coming up next…
Little Venice transport of choice – black swan boat.
Lunch win at Gjelina
The beautiful Avalon posing after her shower – thanks for the ride, don’t think my stomach muscles have ever hurt that much.
Hollywood sign as seen from Griffith Observatory
Fourth of July weekend, house in the hills near Solvang
A miniature horse foal. Quite ridiculous.
Happy Fourth! It’s parade time
(Note: American 4th of July Parade, in the Danish town of Solvang with heavy Central American influences – confused?)
And it’s about 40 degrees, quick, run and hide in a diner
Wine tasting bike tour of the Santa Barbara region wineries (where Sideways was filmed). There was no drinking out of the spittoon (thankfully)
but this did happen…
(PS did you spot the photobombing couple in the wine pic? – HA!)
…and a garden store.
Walk of fame, SO many people you’ve never heard of, but one or two gooduns
Lunching in Rodeo Drive. Excellent people watching.
Car museum, so shiny
Hugemongous guitar store
Gorgeous gardens of the Huntingdon Library at Pasedena
Street lamp art outside LACMA – didn’t go in, all booked up. The perils of visiting LA in the school hols.
One last walk in the woods
One last pancake (or two)
Then bye bye LA…
