    Back to Cali!

    November 2, 2019 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 11 °C

    Long flight but, to my surprise, Air China has the roomiest and most comfortable planes we have been on this entire trip! The 13 hour flight brought us back to the US, to Los Angeles. We are going to spend a few days here recouping (my ankles are huge!) and visiting with Kristen before heading back to TN. We didn’t have any plans for here so we migrated to Newport Beach area after sightseeing LA the majority of the day. I enjoyed some gluten free banana walnut Carmel pancakes at Coco’s Bakery & Restraunt, they were amazing!
    Today’s highlights: obviously breakfast, followed by Hollywood sign and the “Hollywood Walk of Fame”, Rodeo Dr (and all the beautiful cars!!), Beverly Hills and Bel Air, and the sea of people at the Santa Monica Pier, then the sunset from Santa Monica Beach on the way to Newport Beach.
    Side note: Terry just HAD to see the “Beverly Hillbilly’s Mansion”. We looked up the address andheaded that way. It’s very well hidden from the road but a HUGE piece of property!!
