My final two days in California were a bit lazier. On Monday I took Amtrak to downtown LA and left my luggage in storage so I could explore. I toured downtown and then metroed to Hollywood.
I found a great dinner off Hollywood Blvd., Mel’s Drive-In, where I enjoyed some ice cream. I walked much of the walk of fame before returning to Union Station and taking a train down to Irvine. I spent the rest of my time with a dear friend and her husband. We ate mexican food, visitied a mission and walked around Laguna Beach. We also went swing dancing at Atomic Ballroom.
It’s been a wonderful trip, but I think I’m ready to be back in my house.
