Us on Venice Beach

So it's our final day in LA, we got up and went for a run along the beach this morning.  It turns out sands a pretty hard terrain to conquer!! Now we've had a big healthy run we are planning on going and getting a supersize McDonalds for lunch!! And believe it or not we will be catching a bus to get there :D

We have had a fun time, visited Hollywood 2 days on the trot, photographing all the stars on the pavement (well Hannah was!!) and made a trip to Madam Tussauds where Jim wet his pants as he got to see Iron Man!!! (And Masterchief!!!! Man Ironman is awesome).  We also went for lunch at Hooters (actually Hannah's idea!!! amazing) and I brought a Tshirt :)  We attempted to get as close to the Hollywood sign as possible (i was optomistic and wanted to sit on it) which was clearly unreasonable and after a 10 minute stroll up the road James agreed and we turned back! (it was really far)  No worries though as we got great photos of it from a bridge connecting two very posh malls!

We have also explored Venice Beach, walking down the boardwalk and the beach and Jim enjoyed posing for photos on the lifeguards hut, doing his best baywatch impression! (I Hasselhoffed all over the beach baby!!!) And we even had a real american Subway!! Buffalo Chicken for me and Big Philly Cheese Steak for Jim (which was basisally just steak and cheese but with like 20 pieces of cheese).

 

Hopefully if we have time after our MaccyD's we will attempt to walk to Santa Monica which on a map doesn't look too far! (about as far as the hollywood sign - but we can do it - theres not a massive hill in the way!)

Well we've had a great time, tried lots of American things like tacos, frozen yogurt and weird flavour shakes (I got one with extra protein) and even American vitamin water Jo!  The bottles, cans and crisps are massive here and we have seen some real life American fatties :D (they were BIG!) 

We've got our flight to the Cook Island tonight so will update you soon.  Missing you all hope you are coping without us ;) big hugs and kisses, love Jim and Han xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
