Starline Hop On Hop Off Tour of Los AngelesStarline Hop On Hop Off Tour of Los Angeles

StarLine Tours in Los Angeles

as you know. . .we love, love, love guided tours. . .
especially hop on/hop off tours. . .

but. . .there are advantages and disadvantages

the disadvantage. . .you must take pics quick as you roll past. . .

California 2015, Los Angeles CA, Starline Hop On Hop Off, (53)

the major advantage. . .Dave gets to sit back and enjoy the ride and the scenery. . .
this particular tour furnished headsets,
which you plugged into a control box at each seat. . .very nice!

and you see things you would never see on your own. . .

you always get shots of random tourists in all your pics. . .

you often get shots on the fly that don’t turn out so well. . .
and then you must decide. . .
is it really worth it to go back, and get a great shot?

Rodeo Drive. . .eh. . .not really. . .

California 2015, Los Angeles CA, Starline Hop On Hop Off, Marina Del Rey, Guptill, Shorty, Liz, Evans, Janice, David

Lizanne and Shorty are here in the same Thousand Trails Park with us,
so we decided taking the Jeep in and doing the tour together would be great. . .
and it was. . .here we all are at Marina Del Rey. . .

they look great in all their pics. . .
Dave and I are sucking in as much as we can y’all. . .
it ain’t helpin’. . .LOL! . . .but we are making progress. . .

Shorty and Liz at the front of the bus

Shorty and Liz liked the front of the bus
‘cause the windshield blocked the wind. . .

Starline Hop On Hop Off Tour of Los Angeles

we liked the back of the bus ‘cause the windshield
didn’t reflect back into our pics. . .
and we could take pics without standing up. . .

It was a great two days. . .
we saw a lot. . .
which I am going to break down into several posts. . .

Hollywood Sign

one of our final views from the bus on our first day. . .
the illustrious Hollywood Sign. . .gotta see that. . .

see you next time at the
Hollywood Walk of Fame and Madame Tussauds. . .

’til then,
Janice and Dave
