Take Me Out to the Ballgame!

Saturday we woke up in a slightly clouded L.A. We decided to start out the day, by going to Hollywood. We drove up the hills to see the Hollywood sign, and from there we drove down through the city, passing Hollywood Blvd on our way to Venice Beach.

At the beach we stopped in at a cafe to have lunch, and then proceeded to the Santa Monica Pier. We took a walk down the Pier, which has a ferris wheel, a rollercoaster, restaurants and many other things. After that we strolled back down to the beach. Luckily the weather had cleared up, and it was sunny and warm.

Afterwards we drove back up the hills, to see Beverly Hills and Rodeo Drive.

As the big finale of the day, we went to the Dodger Stadium to watch a baseball match between The L.A. Dodgers and the Colorado Rockies. We missed the Twins in Minneapolis, so we settled for the Dodgers in L.A. 😉

The match wasn’t to exciting though. The Rockies hit two homeruns, and the game ended with the Dodgers losing 7-1. But we had a good time, ate a couple of Dodger dogs and on the walk back from the stadium to our car, we got a beautiful view of L.A. from the top of the city.


Lørdag vågnede vi i et lettere skyet L.A. Vi besluttede os for at starte dagen med en tur til Hollywood. Vi kørte op for at se Hollywoodskiltet, og derfra kørte vi ned igennem byen, forbi Hollywood Boulevard på vej til Venice Beach.

På stranden stoppede vi ind på en cafe og spiste frokost. Og bagefter gik vi til Santa Monica Pier. Vi gik en tur ned ad molen, som er fyldt med forlystelser, restauranter og andre sjove ting. Efter det gik vi tilbage til stranden. Heldigvis var vejret klaret op, solen skinnede og det var dejlig varmt.

Herefter kørte vi op til Beverly Hills og Rodeo Drive.

Som den store finale på den dag, tog vi op på Dodger stadion, for at se en baseballkamp mellem L.A. Dodgers og Colorado Rockies. Vi gik jo desværre glip af Twins da vi var i Minneapolis, så vi måtte nøjes med Dodgers i L.A. 🙂

Kampen var desværre ikke videre hårrejsende. Rockies slog to homeruns og kampen sluttede i deres favør, 7-1. Men vi hyggede os, spiste et par Dodger hotdogs og på gåturen fra stadion tilbage til vores bil, havde vi en virkelig flot udsigt over hele L.A. fra toppen af byen.
