We headed out on New Year's Eve day to Los Angeles, a stopover on our way to French Polynesia. We spent New Year's at Disneyland where we watched the fireworks and enjoyed the party atmosphere at Downtown Disney. Then, after a day spent shopping at the Grove and perusing LACMA, we headed to the Beverly Hills Hotel for the night. Dinner at the Polo Lounge was delicious, as was breakfast at the coffee shop downstairs the next morning -- two infamous LA eateries. We then headed to LAX to catch our flight to the final destination: Tahiti! Already a great start to the new year!
