For my second visit to Los Angeles I decided to stay near the sea at Santa Monica. The hotel is located around ¼ mile from the sea front and the famous Santa Monica pier. The area is much nice than the area of Hollywood I stayed in previously with more shops, restaurants and cafes in the area near to the hotel.
For this visit rather than just to rely on the iPhone camera I bought a simple ‘point & shoot’ from Canon. This gives better overall images as well as an optical zoom (x4) plus a better digital zoom (x18) if needed. It only records video in 1080p where as the iPhone will do 4K at 60FPS.
Flying once more from Heathrow Terminal 5 with British Airways (got to use that Bronze membership) I flew directly to LAX. Once again I upgraded the standard economy seat with a seat near the emergency exit to allow the extra leg room.
Places visited so far – Hollywood walk of fame & Chinese Theater, Warner Bros Studios, Griffiths Observatory, Malibu and the Santa Monica Museum of Aviation. As the weather is going to be poor tomorrow I have decided to visit the California Science Center which should be interesting.
