We started today with breakfast in a bakery just across the road from the hotel then we got the bus to Wilshire and Santa Monica Boulevard - a short walk took us to Rodeo Drive. It was 8.30 in the morning so the "beautiful people" were still needing their beauty sleep and the street was deserted apart from security - had a stroll down the famous road looking at the shopfronts - all very pretty - even the palm trees grew in unison - not even a frond out of place!
Next stop Santa Monica Pier - great fun, rode the most famous ferris wheel in the USA, was suitably reverent at the end of Route 66 and rode on the merry go round
This evening we went to a fantastic Italian Restaurant and had a meal to celebrate the end of the holiday - good job it is the end because the bill was the size of the national debt! Dawn tried Panacotta for the first time and really enjoyed it - the wine also went down well! We haven't finished celebrating yet once we upload this its back to the hotel bar to say a fond farewell.
