Show trip route
On our Sunday in Hollywood, we went to the huge farmer's market with Jessica and sampled all the fruits(more than once!) We shared a burrito for lunch and were happy just watching all the people. There was all kinds of buzz about election and the CA propositions going on. After the farmer's market we headed to the walk of fame and took a look around in some of the stores and since we were in such a sharing mood that day we went to pink berry and split a yogurt too. Brian made his pasta sauce for clint for dinner and we went to bed with the intentions of getting up very early the next morning.
Monday was the day of tapings! We woke up before 6 to ride to the CBS building to get tickets to see the price is right and then headed back to eat breakfast and get ready before leaving at 9 to go back and wait around until 1 when the show started. We had to go through "processing" which was an interview about where we were from and what we do. Needless to say brian and I were too "boring" to be picked as contestants, but it was fun to see how the taping was done and to watch all the crazies win money. We went out to lunch and headed back over to the walk of fame to find the handprints. When we got there, we found a guy giving out jimmy kimmel live tickets and decided to go see that...aka more waiting in line. this time wasn't as bad. The only guest we knew was Dr. Phil, but the music wasn't as bad as we were expecting and we had fun. Brian needed a cheese burger so we went to jonny rockets for dinner.
This morning it was up at 8 or so and then lazing around until we left Clint and Jessica's around 9:30. Brian had come up with roads to take zig zagging around santa monica blvd. Eventually we got on Santa monica to find a bike lane and that the ride wasn't half as bad as it was when we headed in and soon enough we were back on the bike path on the beach.
When we headed into Venice Beach today, we walked just to look at all the stores and what was going on on the boardwalk. It was quite interesting with all the homeless people out trying to sell their "art work" Brian and I got a few good laughs out of it.
We arrived here in Hermosa beach around 3 and left our stuff at the house we're staying at tonight. We headed back down to the pier to do some people watching and ended up here at the coffee bean and tea leaf to update.
peace love bicycles.
