Back from Vacation

Vacation was awesome!! First of all the weather on the coast of So. California was/is fabulous. The warmest day was a high of 80. The week ranged from 73-80 degrees during the day and 60-65 degrees at night with a breeze that required a hoodie. Oh and did I mention no humidity.

Tuesday (July 22) we got on the plane and headed for Orange County, we arrived about 2 pm and picked up our rental car.I had reserved an economy car to save money but we got hooked up with the PT Cruiser. We dropped our bags at my brother's apt and headed to the Pier for a drink and to wait for my brother and sister-in-law to get home from work. And then dinner on the pier.

Wednesday we drove to San Diego and we stopped at Camp Pendelton, went to the zoo, the Air and Space Museum and to La Jolla to the beach. Lo Jolla was very plush.

Thursday we went to LA, Hollywood, Venice Beach, and to Long Beach to visit the Queen Mary. In Hollywood we stopped at the Chinese Theater and checked out the footprints in the cement. Venice beach was neat but trashy, we stopped at the basketball courts where "White Man Can't Jump" was filmed. And we stopped for a photo op at Muscle Beach. Then in Long Beach we took the haunted tour of the Queen Mary. The Queen Mary was plush ship in the 30's and 40's and during the war it was taken out of commission to transport soldiers to Germany and back. The Queen Mary was the most sought ship by Hitler.

Ok that is all for now I will post more about the trip later.
