San Pedro, just up the coast, was our next location. We visited a beautiful lighthouse - we may model our dream home location and garden based on this property - it was gorgeous. This beautiful lighthouse is on a huge cliff edge (for obvious reasons) and is surrounded by a small local park and views up and down the coast. Just across the street was the Korean friendship bell. A very large bell that we assume was a gift from Korea as a symbol of their friendship.
Santa Monica was our next speedy stop with a stroll down the peer. While we were there a local radio station was having a promotion for the new movie Year One and they had a big bouncy pad in which you could smack a partner around with a big padded stick. It was great fun and for the pleasure of hitting each other we got movie tickets to the premier of the movie Year One. Unfortuately we couldn't attend due to time constraints but it was still exciting.
A speedy drive through Hollywood checking out the famous peoples homes was kind of scary, one because the peoples homes are so large, two because the roads and drivers are crazy. We managed to see Marilyn Monroes house and her grave. We also saw the grave of Dean Martin and the house and path where OJ Simpson killed his wife. A very morbid drive we know. We also managed to check out Grauman's Chinese theatre and the hollywood stars! There were no real stars there but there were plenty of look-alikes to snap a picture with, for a small tip of course.
It was a crazy and tiring two days but thanks to Kelli, Dan and the girls, who drove us around and took hundreds of photos, we managed to see everything we hoped for and have a great time.
Lots of Love from the, starry-eyed, Bek and Jesse train.
From the Pacific Ocean to Hollywood stars, we saw Los Angeles. This week we spent a cram packed few days checking out the famous haunts. We first headed to the 'OC' (You should all be humming 'California, California here we come!') and visited Huntington beach, we had a quick dip in the icy ocean, just to make it authentic. Whilst we both enjoyed the beach we are biased and think that Australian beaches are better (hee hee, sorry).
