We arrived in LA about 4pm and grabbed our car rental. Thrifty the thrifty buggers had a heap of additional charges we didn’t know about and were unhappy about. They did give us an upgrade to ease the pain thought d we drove off in a beautiful, black Chrysler 200.
Our hotel was great, massive room and good location – the Quality Inn, Hermosa.
We headed to the Rockefeller for dinner. It had the potential to be fantastic judging by the menu but it didn’t end up surpassing expectations.
We walked down and out over the pier, watched the night fishermen, before wandering back, soaking up the atmosphere outside the bars that like the street to the pier.
Both of us were exhausted from a big night in Vancouver the previous night so it was back for an early night and to try out the hotel shower. That’s one of my fave parts – testing out the hotel showers. Bliss.
We slept in and went for breakfast at the hotel and took the car into town for a look around in the daylight. There’s some cool shops and the beach is just awesome.
There was this great community event on for people to learn o play drums down the beach – so good!
Hot’s Kitchen for lunch – LOVE this place!! Go visit it. I can’t praise their tacos enough.
From there we hit the road to Palm Springs, driving along the coast and ending up in a Walmart in Compton – that was a sight!
