Road Trip!  Los Angeles/Hollywood, CA

Into the heart of Darkness…

Unlike the late Randy Newman, I do NOT love LA.  It’s been a few years since I’ve been here, and I was in no hurry to return but one of  those “once in a lifetime” things popped up, and here we are!

Our lodging for the next couple nights…

The trip took us roughly 5.5 hours, not too shabby!  On the way we made a pit-stop for fuel and restroom facilities and found an Arby’s,  so we had to stop there too.  Say what you will about Arby’s… People seem to love ’em or hate ’em, but we love their sandwiches.   All their locations in our neck of the woods have closed down, so this was our first time in one for years and we were quite happy with our decision to stop in!

We checked into the Roosevelt Hotel,  which has quite the history: the first Academy Awards were held here, Marilyn Monroe lived here for some time…many Hollywood legends have stayed here over the decades.  Some say a few are still here, haunting the joint but so far we’ve seen nothing unusual.

The view from our room…

Today we’re just gonna kick about and do some touristy stuff until it’s time to get ready for tonight’s event.  More on that later…  For now, we’re gonna take our daughter to see the Hollywood  Walk of Fame stars and the Chinese Theater with all the famous people’s handprints and what not…  But first, breakfast!

Thanks for stopping by!
