With a weekend in LA we made the most of it by going on a bus tour to see some of the key sights and then caught up with my daughters charming friend who being a native was able to take us to places that probably were not on the normal tourist route. I discovered Malbec and a whiz up in the air to watch the sun go down from the tallest structure.
We walked for miles along the promenade from Muscle Beach to the pier and shopping precinct of Santa Monica. Stuffing ourselves with an In & Out Burger after poking around the canals of Venice before heading to the heart of the city for a quick trip on the shortest commercial railway followed by wine in an intimate hidden watering hole.
We joined our host the following day for afternoon tea where there were over 80 different teas to pick from in a cute tea shop before heading across to Las Vegas.
