Today Trisha and I embarked on the first real day of vacation. Yesterday we were too lazy to go anywhere. She had been up for like 25 hours before that and so we got some tacos in Encinitas for lunch and stayed home and made egg rolls for dinner.
Today we went and did all of Los Angeles in one day. We started at the Santa Monica Pier. We walked out to the end and back. Then we had lemonade at the original Hot Dog On A Stick. Here are a couple of photos.
After that we decided to take the advice of Rachel Ray on the Food Network. She showed Tito's Tacos on her show Tasty Travels and said they had the best tacos in the country. They certainly we tasty and the burritos were good too. They came with chips and salsa that were also yummy. We brought them home for Carolynn. Here is a picture of me at Tito's Tacos.
After that we went to the La Brea Tar Pits. We threw a little educational fun into the mix. It was fun too.
Next on the tour of Los Angeles, we went to the Farmers Market. We got some tea from the tea shop. I had some Thai Tea and it was yummy. It had some milk in it and it was a little sweet. Trish had some kind of blood orange tea. It was good too. Sweet like a juice. We shopped a bit in there and headed off to China Town. We bought some junk in there too, then we checked out Olvera Street.
Then we drove to Beverly Hills. We drove down Rodeo Drive and passed billion dollar homes. It was cool. We didn't get out of the car there though because they would have told us to get back in.
Finally, we went to Hollywood and went to Graumann's Chinese Theater and checked out the weirdos. Then we headed home. To top off our day we ended with a California staple... In N Out. It was an excellent, yet long today. Tomorrow more adventures.
