California Highlights Part 7 - Los Angeles

This morning we had breakfast at the hotel and headed to LA. It was about a 2 hour drive to LA and then we got the option of doing a walking tour of LA (we were trying it out and if it was good Contiki might add it to the list of optionals). It was was, good info. I had been to LA and the Hollywood Walk of Fame area before, but I did learn a bunch of new stuff. We saw the theaters and the Hollywood Sign then it was back on the bus and off to Venice Beach.

At Venice Beach we saw a glass walker and I got to help with his show. Let me tell you, the plastic lobster freaked me out for some reason, almost as bad as the guy walking on the glass. Venice was interesting, muscle beach and rollerblading guy with the guitar. But we had a nice lunch.

After Venice Beach we dropped a couple people off at LAX since this was the end of the tour. The rest of us headed down to our hotel in Anaheim. We all settled in to our rooms and went to dinner then the hotel bar for drinks. We had a lot of fun together for our last night, it was sad saying our last goodbyes and reminiscing about the trip.

The next morning I was up early and off to the airport to fly home...
