Santa Monica and Hollywood


We had a late night last night so didn’t get up and out of the door until midday! Dannie took us to her favourite Dim Sum (Asian tapas) restaurant in town called Sea Empress which was really different to the typical Asian inspired food we get in the UK. The food was healthy, fresh and extremely tasty; they bring round little trolly’s for you to pick the dishes.

After lunch me and Paul headed for Hollywood, we walked down Hollywood Blvd and saw the star lined street and also took a drive to the Hollywood sign and found a great view point. We then drove to Rodeo Drive and Beverley Hills to take a few pictures! On the way back we stopped at Venice beach to catch the sunset, the beach has golden sand and is huge, part of the beach is called Muscle Beach and they actually have a gym in the middle of it, haha!

Dannie recommended a bar overlooking Venice Beach for us to get a drink and some dinner, again it was a rooftop bar on top of a hotel (Erwin Hotel). The building was the tallest in the area so we could see the whole coastline and over the city of Los Angeles. It was quite chilly so they gave us blankets and we sat next to a heater.
