The Pacific Coast Highway

After checking out from our drab Hollywood motel this morning, we headed to the Annenberg Space for Photography. They had an exhibition on called Extreme Exposure which was incredible! It focuses on photographers who risk their lives for the perfect shot.

When we left, we drove about 45 mins to a place I spotted last night on the freeway to Disneyland: Citadel Outlets. It turned out to be not only the sole factory outlet mall in LA, but also right on our route to San Diego today.

We really struck the jackpot! I ended up buying a Levi’s jacket for $20 and a blazer from H&M that makes me look like a Dalton Academy Warbler (I think I’ll wear it to Celine). But the real find was at a leather shop that’s going into liquidation: 60% off everything, plus a further 30%, meant this leather jacket cost me hardly anything. Score!

Very satisfied with our purchases, we continued our drive to San Diego, stopping briefly at the Oceanside Pier to watch sunset.

Paul snapped these great shots of sunset at the pier.

Our accommodation is better than the last place. It’s right by the Mexican border, and you can tell because everyone speaks to you in Spanish first, switching to English only when you give them a confused look.
