Leroy's Adventures Part 2 - LA

We had to get up at 4 am to get the plane for LA so you can imagine how hungry we were by the time we got there, so guess what we did first, yes you are right we headed for Hollywood Swingers cafe for a big breakfast.

We had really yummy French toast, this took quite a bit of eating but we were hungry so we managed OK, it was yummy as you can see.

One of the best things we did in LA was meeting Pink Bunny (@pinkbunnyr) she is so lovely. We went to the House of Pies in LA which sold yummy pies but the best thing was meeting Pink Bunny I recommend that everyone meets Pink Bunny she is awesome and Gray as well!Pink Bunny was so welcoming and she gave us some lovely bunny chocolate. Henry and I have not eaten the bunnies as they look so nice it seems wrong to eat them somehow.

The next morning I went on a special expedition to look for something that I knew would make a friend of ours happy. Our dear Mookie (@Schnille)'s mum Sandra loves Charlie Chaplin so I went to look for his star on the Hollywood walk of fame so that she could see it. I found something else that she would like too. Look who I met.

I said hello from Sandra I knew she would want me to.

Then we moved on to our new hotel they upgraded us twice and we had such a fantastic room you could live there for ever I took loads of pictures but I will try to keep the number on here manageable.

All of the rooms had great views this was the view of Santa Monica beach from Monkey's room it was amazing we had a sitting room, kitchen, two bedrooms (Henry and I shared) and two bathrooms as well as a massive bath in Monkey's room!!

We went for a walk along Santa Monica beach and look what we found, its the end of Route 66, we found the sign!

Unfortunately I couldn't rent a Harley in my size but hey I was there!

I popped in for a visit to Hollywood I think you can just make out the famous sign behind me. Lotgs of movie contracts were offered but I said no, I'm not really a acting lion and I don't court that kind of fame.

The next morning Henry and I received an emergency telephone call, two of the lifeguards on Santa Monica beach had not turned up for work so they asked us to substitute of course we were happy to help out.

Thank goodness Snuffy made us the board shorts we needed them here we are looking out at the Pacific Ocean to see if anyone needs saving.

Well apart from a visit to David Beckham (I'm not allowed to talk about that), that concluded our visit to LA and we flew back to Dallas to have more fun there.

I hope you have enjoyed my journeys I certainly did and my brother Henry has got the travel bug. We are jet lagged now but would do it all again any time.

Thank you Monkey for having us to visit and taking us to interesting places and thank you Pink Bunny and Gray for meeting us and giving us such a lovely time in your lovely city.
