Arrived Sunday morning (26th Sep 2010) in LA and had the usual fun waiting in line to get through immigration and customs. The immigration officer noticed that the colour of mum’s hair had changed from her passport photo – dad responded that wigs come in many colours 🙂
We went for a drive around LA, called in at the Farmers Markets in Hollywood and had strawberry lemonade plus great fruit. A stall there sold flavoured pistachio’s which was favoured by all.
We stayed at Santa Monica and enjoyed a strolled along the pier, lunch at Bubba Gump Shrimp and dinner at Barney’s Beanery (a favourite from last trip) – http://www.barneysbeanery.com/ In the evening Emily and I went back to the pier for the mandatory couples ride on the Ferris Wheel.
