Ready for Home

Its such a lonely planet - it really is. I mean, Im having just a blast soaking up the Californian sun and taking the most amazing pictures (you will have to wait til I get back to the UK for those babies). I have this ache in my throat and heart and I know its Ellie. Ellie, Ellie, Ellie. And my phone calls to Anna and the security of my own home.

I took a walk down Venice beach last night on my own and got lost in the sound of the waves whilst watching sunset surfers and photographing silhouettes on the shore. I felt the tears welling in my eyes - its such paradise here. I met another photographer on the beach who lives local and he was showing me some great tips on how to photograph sunsets. I must say the shots I got are pretty amazing and I cannot wait to show you them. He asked if I was a little sad and I think it must have been written all over my face. Such a nice man. The Californians are just ultra friendly here - Ive always been made to feel welcome as I sit like a lost soul in cafes and bars. They seem to be magnetised by my posh english accent.

I got talking to this lovely couple at lunch yesterday and within half an hour I had taken his business card (mortgage lender - watch this space ladies) and the lady - Tina - offered to take me shopping in Beverly Hills. She said that I would love Armani as she dazzled me with the most massivest diamond bling on her ring finger. I laughed it off by saying that they might take a detour to some secluded spot and have me murdered for my measly $120. They took it on the chin with roaring laughter and whilst the invite was erm, inviting, I declined. Mark says Im too trusting and I took heed of his last words to me on sunday night.

I am sat in the Marriott hotel right now as the hotel I am in charge 49 cents a minute to use the net - the thieving sods. So I have snuck in here to update my blog. Its $259 a night here and Im not suprised. Its stunning. My hotel is across the street and at $97 is quite nice but not swanky. Plus this place lets you surf for free and print stuff out. I might have a go at printing war and peace - just for the hell of it. Mwahahahahahahahahaha.

I gotta go now - and soak up some more leathery skin inducing sunshine. I miss all of you so much even though you are a "dot com" away. Have I missed anything?

Adios my fine friends xx

Gosh I am so trusting too! I'd probably have gone with the lady and then got murdered for my dollars. Scary! You must share the tips on the sunset photos when you get back. We're missing you loads. Sorry your trip is marred by you missing your darling Ellie Belle, but you'll see her soon!
