Day 23 (Thursday 3 June) Los Angeles

Well we made this far but today Norm finally put his foot in it. We took a tour of Hollywood, Rodeo Drive and surrounding areas and he managed to upset the tour guide. In fact the guide was very keen to give Norm extra time to visit different areas so that he could leave before we were back!

Seriously though the tour guide has great – asked lots of questions and wanted participation by the customers. It was very entertaining. Check out the photos below.

I forgot to share something from yesterday – this is for the staff at GGV (including Sheila – someone may need to show this to her – has she seen the blog?)  Anyway I have found something to install in the office to keep us cool.

This is a fine mist spray machine - what do you think?

 As I write this post the LA Lakers are playing the Boston Celtics (1st game in the NBA (Basketball) finals and the LA Lakers are winning 89 to 74 in the last quarter with 7 minutes to go).

One other thing to all of you following this blog – I have made a faux pas on this blog – I wonder how many of you noticed (but were too nice to comment)? When we arrived here on Tuesday I said we were 11 hours behind Melbourne – in actual fact we are 17 hours behind you – I am glad to see you are all on your toes!!

Anyway time to sign off – last day here tomorrow (nothing planned – but that will probably change!) Home is fast approaching – will post something tomorrow. N&W

Day 22 (Wednesday 2 June) Los Angeles

Today we spent the day at Universal Studios. I did wonder how we would  spend the whole day there but there were so many things to do (and there were a lot of people there too). 

We visited most of the activities and went on a few of the rides (especially the ones where you get wet!!! – I spent most of the day soggy). 

We left at 9:00am and got back at 7:30pm so it was a full day. We have another big day planned so will sign off now. I will leave you with some photos from today’s excursion. Bye for now. N&W
