Waking up late and heading to the ocean

I slept in this morning and woke up when I was supposed to be on a bus already. I headed to the famous Mel's Drive In on Hollywood and Highland - still open 24 hours a day. I slid into the green plastic booth and received a cup if diner coffee while I waited for me steel cut oatmeal.
Other than my rather dietitian like choice the menu is purely classic diner food; eggs, waffles, ice cream and pancakes.

My table even had it's own jukebox!

I was headed toward the Getty Villa today but after a two hour bus drive still landed me another half hour away from my destination I took a sign from providence and decided to explore the Santa Monica promenade a little.
Lunch was at Pizza Antica where I sat at the bar and enjoyed the antipasti platter with a diet coke and lemon.

The fried focaccia crisps were so good I wanted to crawl into bed with a bag of them and watch movies.
So I didn't end up at a museum, in fact because of the squall like weather I didn't even see the pier. I did however eat some biscotti.

(I totally dunked it in my coffee)
I also went shopping at Kenneth Cole and Bloomingdales.

Now I'm off to get ready for the show and head to the club.

  1. I don't think you missed out on too much, rather traded one good thing for another. No Corolla as the car was not what it seemed- story when you get home. Lazy wnating to rain Sunday here - Jess studying, Dad napping, Trent and I "Lord of the Rings"ing. Love Mum xoxoxox

  2. And then I popped over with some 'Chocolate Cheesecake Brownies' that I made earlier in the day. I will make you some when you get home, after I have tweaked them a little. lol. Even though you didn't get to your destination, as planned, it sounded like you still had a good day. Sometimes impromptu days like your one today, are better :) Hope you are having an amazing time still! Can't wait for coffee, markets and all of your adventurous story's when you get back :) xxo

  3. Amy, as if I care even slightly about the bags that your Kenneth Cole and Bloomingdales items came in!!!!! Show us the merchandise, dammit! (love from your shopping-deprived uni-student bud)....
