We dressed and headed a few blocks down to Third Street Promenade. The Promenade is made up of mostly chain stores that I can find any day of the week here in Houston...but it was just what the doctor ordered for finding a pair of black Ugg's.
After picking up my boots, we stumbled across the Saturday Farmer's Market.
Next we headed into Los Angeles proper to visit The Grove Shopping Center and the adjoining Farmers Market...at Third and Fairfax.
It was a beautiful afternoon...with sunglasses being a must! After strolling among the shops, we decided to stop at Morels French Steakhouse and Bistro for lunch at the sidewalk cafe. It was so nice sitting around, visiting and watching ALL THE PEOPLE walking by. And dogs. Don't forget the dogs. I don't think people in LA go anywhere without their dogs!
Here's a picture our server took of us relaxing after lunch.
After lunch and a stroll through the larger Farmer's Market, we headed back to Beverly Hills to get our pictures made with the sign.
While we were there, two young girls came over to have their pictures made as well. So, we did the photo opportunity swap...asking them to take a quick picture of all three of us for a picture of both of them.
After getting our pictures made with the famous Beverly Hills sign, we headed back to Santa Monica and turned north toward Malibu.
As we made our way back into Santa Monica, we began having car issues. All of a sudden, as Robin was rinsing off the windshield from the light rain that was falling, we had a headlight and our windshield wipers go out...with water still all over the place! Thankfully we were only a few blocks from out hotel.
I wanted to grab a funnel cake while we were there...but alas, after 10 plus minutes in line and no movement, I settled for a churro from a side cart instead. Oh well, it still counts as carnival food!
