Carrie and John playing tourist in California.

Over the holidays, Carrie's friend John traveled from Australia for his first visit to the United States. Carrie met him in California and they saw the sights of LA, Hollywood, and San Francisco.

Some of their stops included Venice Beach, Santa Monica Pier, and Universal Studios. They saw stars featured on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and walked in footprints of stars outside the Grauman's Chinese Theatre.

After their adventurous trip up the Pacific Coast Highway to San Francisco, they rode the famous cable cars, ate seafood at Fisherman's Wharf, drove on the curvy Lombard Street, visited Alcatraz. They crossed the Golden Gate Bridge and stood in awe of the giant redwoods at Muir Woods.

They then traveled all the way across the country to Georgia to spend Christmas and 'meet the family'. Everyone enjoyed meeting John, hopefully we didn't scare him too much!

He's a fine looking I guess that's British...I should say he's a fine looking mate. Anyhow, sounds like they had the perfect tourist experience out in California. I take it they missed the bad weather. Have a fun visit!

Joe just got back from San Fransisco from teaching a teen meditation retreat. I've been there once but never LA. I would love to spot some Hollywood stars but I would die before I drove there.

Wow...what a trip! Carrie really showed John a lot of fabulous sights.
June is right..he's a fine looking 'bloke'. They do use that term in Oz..after all, we Aussie's are from British stock originally, albiet convicts..that's why we're all a bit rough around the edges mate :)

After that kind of tour of CA and across country, I suspect you better like him a lot. Sounds like there might be a festive party with white involved sometime in the future!

Your visits to my blog and caring comments always warm my heart. Thanks for being there and sharing. It really makes a difference!
