I'm back from a super fantastic trip to LA and have some pics and details to share.
So here is the run down.
Day 1 - Got there at midday, checked into the W Hotel in Westwood and wandered around the village surrounding UCLA ( one of the most beautiful campuses ever).
For dinner, we ate on the patio at Pink Taco and the fish tacos were to die for.
Friday was all about hiking in the Hollywood Hills. We did this interesting hike called the hidden stairs. There are old staircases that run through the Hills from the days when people used the stairs to get up and down instead of roads. It's a great way to exercise, see the houses in the hills, and catch up with friends.
Friday night it was Wahoo Fish Taco and shopping on the Santa Monica Promenade
I didn't really buy much but it was fun to browse.
Saturday was all about biking on the beach. We rented bikes in Santa Monica and biked down the path along the beach past Venice into Marina Del Ray. Exhilarating, freeing, refreshing....I could go own. I had the best time pedaling along the beach with friends. The sidewalk show in Venice with tight rope walkers and weightlifters was amusing as always too.
We headed back into Venice Beach for lunch at this new place called Lemonaide. Delish. Please let this chain come to Canada. And be more successful than Boutique Target.
And then onto drinks at Shutters on the Beach in Santa Monica
Dinner was Sushi Roku with friends. Super fun and fresh (the sushi ;)
Sunday, it was Manhattan Beach where we used to live. Tennis, walking along the boutiques and the beach.
And then home. Sigh......
I guess it's time to make new plans.
