we parked a little far from it so that we could walk through the neighborhood before reaching the water. Living in the houses we walked by must be so nice. There was a grid of canals that could be walked around and over by a series of sidewalks and bridges. a little inconvenient when there was no bridge built to walk around a block or two to the next bridge, but it was a nice walk and I got to see a couple large birds (I love birds).
I had to change into my swimsuit inside a smelly public bathroom that was full of grafiti, it was really gross. The water was really cold. So I basically just ran in and ran back out, but it was rather refreshing. As it got later, we tried to find the car and it would have been a complete disaster if I hadn't remembered the name of the street we were parked on, because my dad wasn't going to remember. We drove North and stopped at an Italian restaurant that was really nice.
We drove past the Hollywood sign and it is completely overrated. It looks really dirty, sort of an off-white from the highway.
