This morning we said farewell to our Los Gatos apartment and headed south along the Californian coast toward the City of Angels. The oceanic views reminded us of home - as did the little cafe perched on the cliffs serving “California’s Best Fish & Chips”.

Wrapping up a six hour drive, we pulled in to the Hotel Erwin alongside the infamous Venice Beach. True to our expectations, these trendy lodgings (complete with rentable sunglasses and designer condoms) served up some delicious cocktails with our dinner before we crashed for the night.
