We are in LA.
I had one thing I wanted to do when we came to LA, to see the Hollywood sign. When we arrived here from Frazier Park where we spent two nights in a house via Airbnb, we planned our route so we could stop in a park and see it. But when we got there it was mobbed with tourists! I knew it was going to be busy but this was ridiculous. I had looked up where to see the sign and it said go to Griffiths Park, there is a Observatory there from where you can see it. And it was written like it was a small place with a few parking spaces. But it was a huge place with shuttle buses going up the hill. So, we turned around. And I haven’t seen it ☹
But we have been to Santa Monica’s Pier today. We hired some bikes and rode along the beach. It was great, even better than when we did it in San Francisco. Henry was sitting on a seat on the back of Stephens bike and he could see a bit better this time. We rode all the way to the Marina and back, about 10km. Halfway back we stopped for lunch. Then we returned the bikes and went to go on the rides at the Pier. Henry loves the rides and would go on them all if he could. Unfortunately, he is too short for some of them. Stephen also loves them so he would go with him while I’m standing next to them holding the bags. I did go on the big Ferris wheels with them.
A wonderful day and I hope we will get back to LA one day to see the sign.
Tomorrow it is time to board the plane again and we are off to Hawaii.
Henry got a tattoo from Bob.
