Full day off, finally. Paige and I drive over to the Coffee, Tea, Bean, and Leaf on Melrose Ave. Nothing opens till at least noon, so we ride around, Hollywood Blvd, Sunset Blvd, etc. It's been a number of years since Paige has been to LA, and 20 years since she lived here.

Make it down to the 3rd Street Promenade in Santa Monica. Walk around shopping, Paige is looking for shoes (boots) of course. Find nothing, head back towards Melrose. Stop for a Jamba Juice and then more shopping, finally topping out around 3:30pm. Nothing bought by either of us. Back to the hotel for showers and off to meet Colleen and her husband Richard for dinner.

Drive through Laurel Canyon on the way to Colleen's house off the 101 freeway. Once we arrive Colleen takes us on a tour of the house, beautiful place with swimming pool, horses, etc. She then drives us around the neighborhood, pointing out the houses of Lisa Marie Presley, Matt LeBlanc, etc. Her neighborhood is full of riding trails and most everyone has horses. Then it's off to meet Richard for sushi.

Great sushi place near their house, and Richard and I even get to watch the Angels on their way to winning the series while eating. Richard is a very interesting guy who's family has been into horses (and horse racing) for three generations. He sits on the California Horse Racing Board also.

Eventually make our way back to the hotel in West Hollywood and fall asleep stuffed.
