California Part 2 Video
Another video is uploaded and ready. This one looks at the Hollywood area before taking us to Universal Studios, Six Flags Magic Mountain and ends with a visit to the famous Lawry's Prime Rib restaurant in Beverly Hills, with a look at the Disney re-imagineered Encounters restaurant at LAX, where we enjoyed a great meal and wine whilst watching our flight arrive. This has to be the best place to pass time, from that horrible moment from checking in to boarding, we have found . You will probably spot the opening sequence is the same as one other video. Once I had decided on the music it just fitted so well (though actually the day we arrived it was hot and sunny, this was filmed from Encounters before we left) I just had to use it again to set the mood. There's a review of Encounters coming soon on the dining pages and we must give a big thankyou to Susan for recommending this. It made the start of the journey home a pleasure.

Perfect day for California Dreamin' (it's cold and rainy here this morning) What a nice overview of your LA experience. You've got me humming Randy Newman's "I Love LA" now, big smile on my face, thinking about a nice dinner at Lawry's.

Another FANTASTIC video!! Very well done. I'm really loving watching all these... brings back so many memories. Can't wait to get back on Colonial Street on the Uiversal backlot too. Last time I was on there I 'Desperate Housewives' hadn't aired. I'm soooo excited to get back to Cali!!! And these videos are making excellent countdown material.

Meant to say, I caught your visual pun--a full reveal of the Chinese Theater just as the Mamas and the Papas are singing "Stopped into a church I passed along the way." You know, in HOLLYWOOD movies are a religion.

Just a quick note about why the music credit at the end is given to Mama's and Papa`s.. According to Wikipedia that was the name the band used on the first album, then somebody noticed the incorrect use of the apostrophe..

Fish and chip's anyone..:)
