Bad sleep last night… Up about 7.30 and hit the beach for a run with hubby. Man, that concrete path is hard!!! We ran for a while on it, then detoured off road onto the sand which was sluggish and filled our shoes, then back onto the path to empty our shoes, then up the walkway to cross over Ocean Avenue and return via the streets around Montana Avenue, finishing on the Santa Monica Stairs (downwards – yay!).
The only downside of being on the west coast is that it takes the sun longer to hit the beaches in the early morning and there was quite a marine layer to burn off this morning. By the end of the run, there was sparkling blue sky.
We ran about 7 000 steps and my feet hurt like hell afterwards.
After breakfast, we then headed to Hollywood! There was a little detour on the way as the 12 year old had decided that he needed a skateboard. We returned to Rip City and our favourite skate board salesman helped us out again. One happy ‘Junior’ walked away with a cruise board.
We then found free car parking on the side of the road just two blocks from the Walk of Fame. The only problem with the Walk of Fame is that you walk the length of the main part of the Hollywood Boulevard with your eyes glued to the sidewalk and miss everything else around you.
Interesting to see the old award winners outside Dolby Theatre.
We wound our way down Sunset Boulevard to home and the whiled away the afternoon with the boys using their new skateboards.
19 000 steps.
