Felton to Los Angeles

May 24, 2014.  Today was a day of travel mostly.  We had a good breakfast at the hotel and hit the road south, headed to Los Angeles.

A few miles down the road, I pulled into a parking area to take Big Sis down to the water so that she could feel the temperature of Pacific Ocean water and be able to answer the question others might ask:  "How cold is the Pacific Ocean water?"  Only she can answer that question now, but I can say that she did not tarry while her pinkies were submerged in the water.  Her shoes are shown behind her to show that she actually did get her feet wet. But I also have to say that she did it only under duress...


From there, we simply pointed the car southward and drove down Hwys 101 and 1 to Los Angeles.  

We decided last night to do a city tour in LA if everything worked out. We looked on the web to find a tour that we liked, and found one that suited our tastes.  And I looked on the map to see where the pickup place was located.  So, when we were approaching town, I pulled off the highway and drove to where I thought we needed to find a room.  Whew, traffic was packed bumper to bumper as we approached some hotels.

The one I was looking for was not there or had changed hands, so we pulled into another one. Long story made short, we found one that met our needs but almost broke the bank!  Expensive, to say the least, but it's only money, so we stayed there.  Tomorrow, we'll not need to move the car until we leave town, and we can walk to the pick-up place.

After checking in, we decided to walk down to Hollywood Blvd to see where the pick-up place was located.  Man, what a mix of people.  People of every description everywhere!  Packed sidewalks, people in costumes, all races of people, and all nationalities of people. It was crazy-wild.  Not dangerous at all, but just a huge mix of people everywhere.  Quite a show.

We stayed for about an hour and then walked back to the hotel for the night.

I forgot to carry the Ipad with me, so I have no pics of the people to share.  I'll have some for tomorrow.  Instead of pics from today, I'll post a few from earlier in the trip.  Enjoy....

Tomorrow--City Tour.
