We finished the week by going to Rodeo Drive and Beverly Hills area, Santa Monica Beach and Malibu – all very interesting to see, but painfully long to get there and back due to the really nasty traffic.
The beach was really nice @ Santa Monica, although with the wind, it was particularly cold.
We also visited Huntington Beach which again was really nice – great beach, folks were surfing and kite surfing – cool. Huntington Beach would appear to be a location where a number of championships are held each year 🙂
All in all, we (Vicky and Simon) agree that the San Francisco Bay area feels like a nicer area to live than LA – this is not based on anything other than 3 or 4 days driving around the LA area.
The people that have rented ForkHall have made a request that we let them move in on the 26th of this month !!!! It is v unlikely that we will get all the gear sorted by then so we will be going for the 1st April.
That way, we can literally move out and head to CA the week after Easter Monday – flight costs will make the decision for us 🙂
Olly and Elly were OK on the flight home from LA, with them both ultimately getting a reasonable amount of sleep – mummy and daddy maybe got 3 hours in. They then didn’t get out of bed until they were awoken by mummy @ 11am this morning – so that’s 14+ hours of kip……
Let’s see how they do tonight…..
