Hi Friends! I'm finally getting around to posting about my California trip in December, where I visited the Rose Parade, Hollywood, Santa Monica & the Pier, and Disneyland. So, I'll post a few pics from each part of the trip. Since it was New Year's, I'm also posting a couple pics of the hotel and some random views of Los Angeles so you can get an idea of the architecture .
The Hotel Lobby (Flowers were gorgeous)
Close up of the flowers
Warehouse where we got to see the floats being decorated. Only 2 more days to go so they were working 24/7 to finish!
Obviously, tons of flowers and other materials being used.
Wait til you see this one finished in the parade!
Finally at the parade!
Then we paid for an optional tour of the floats up close after the parade!
Next up is touring Hollywood.....
Here's where the award shows are held!
Here's just some of the gazillion stars and hand/foot prints of movie stars......
Now for the movie stars.......
Now to the Grove (inside the famous Farmer's Market).....
Famous Landmark in LA....Pink's....the line wrapped around the side of the building
Now on to Santa Monica and the Pier......
Our fabulous tour guides.....
Last, but not least, my trip to Disneyland.....
Time to go. Hope you enjoyed a little piece of my travels.
Looks like a wonderful trip, thanks for sharing...………...

Sounds like you had a fabulous trip...thank you for sharing

Looks like you had a spectacular time in sunny CA!!
I am so thrilled you have shared these pictures from both of your trips, covering East and West Coast, USA!! It feels like you have taken me along in your suitcase!!
Thank you so much, my sweet friend, for the beautiful journey!!
Love and hugs,
Thanks everyone! It was a blast. This was just a taste of all the pics I took with my little Nikon Coolpix camera (point & shoot). LOL
SharpEye, my darling you just took me home to southern California. I was looking for "ME" in the pictures. Haven't been there in 10 years. Recognized almost everything. Pinks has best hotdogs in the US, As long as it is open there is a line. When I was 15 touched the Hollywood sign. Very nice trip I enjoyed probably as much as you.
THANKS FOR THE MEMORIES.
