Malibu

On our way up the coast we stopped at one of our California favorites - Malibu - for the afternoon. We enjoyed the leisurely drive, drove around to a few spots in the area then spent a little bit of time on the pier.


We enjoyed lunch at another favorite, Nobu, and while it was a good meal I was definitely missing some of my raw bar favorites.


I am obsessed with any sort of murder/scandal case that takes over the news and get so drawn in.  I was so into the OJ Simpson case when the show was on recently and Brentwood was right on our way to the hotels so guiltily I asked Derek to drive by OJ's old house sight (it's since been knocked down) and Nicole's old condo to see.  We also popped into the Brentwood Country Mart for a little shopping.


We stayed the rest of our trip at another one of our favorites, The Beverly Hills Hotel.  We took a little time to settle in before heading to the pool until early into the evening.  

Our own balcony and fireplace along with that palm print paper - I never wanted to leave!


We usually have to end our pool days late afternoon to get ready for evening but we were just eating at the hotel and having such a late pool day was quite relaxing. 


We quickly got ready and walked downstairs to the Polo Lounge for a delicious dinner.  They make my favorite salad, the McCarthy salad (we always recreate it at home!) and I had a delicious pink mocktail while Derek went with a special for the evening.

  2. What a fun trip! Those views are spectacular. I always get sucked in and obsessed with big news stories like that, too, and always Google ALL THE THINGS about it until I'm satisfied I know what I "need" to know, ha!

  8. We spent some time in Malibu a few years ago. We didn't have time to do very much, but the restaurants we ate at were fantastic!
