Woke around 8.30ish and headed off to the gym for some treadmill action. Then back to room and time to pack........ and throw more out. It is fast looking like we are going to need to check in an extra bag.  

Si made wonderful turkey sandwiches for lunch and then we hit the road. Time for some top down action and Lou to take the wheel. 

Change of beach scenery from high cliffs to low lying white sandy beaches that became ever more built up as we neared LA. Arrived at the hotel without the usual driving all over town and in the wrong direction. As usual tho we left the bell boys with a large number of bags. We then proceeded to tell them that was only the first lot and that the movers had dropped off a lot of bags earlier in the day..........thankfully we have an upgrade to a suite as we need the extra space! (go starwood). The room is lovely and we quickly get settled and head up to the rooftop pool. 

The pool area is amazing (see photos). 

Simon got a recommendation on dinner and away we headed...... Not sure if was the 3 miles described, but we are in the heart of Hollywood, evidenced by the paparazzi outside the restaurant (bit disappointing for them that all they got was two unknown kiwis......). We went Sushi on the basis that our bodies no longer feel like temples!! All was going well and we were having a wonderful time until Lou leaned over her chair to pick up her wrap that had fallen on the ground. Seconds late Lou was joining the wrap on the floor, full on fall knees, legs and most of all pride hurt. Attempted an elegant recovery, but kinda failed. Oh well when in Hollywood act like the locals I guess...... go Lindsey Lohan, Paris Hilton et la. 

Finished up and headed back to hotel. quick wander around the funky hotel bar (no more drinks) and headed to bed. 

Ciao
