Part 3, California

Vegas to California . . . into earthquake territory. We were 2 hours outside of Los Angeles when the calls from the media-savvy Keegans started to come in. Where were we, were we OK, did we feel it? We didn’t feel the 5.8 rumbler, but we heard lots of tales as we bravely barreled into Pasadena 2 hours later. Locals were smiling and laughing about their tales, totally un-fazed.

True to LA form, we did most of our sightseeing from our car. It really is just that kind of place. Bought a star-homes map for $2 in front of the famous Chinese Theater and got exactly what we paid for.

Hooray for Hollywood!

Marnie and the beautiful Q!!

Gardens at the Getty Museum, breathtaking!

Now in San Diego – the USS Something-or-other. Stayed on Coronado Island, hub of military activity!

The amount of “Top Gun” sights is incredible, can’t wait for my future Netflix date with Goose and Mav!

Fish tacos with Tom & Shannon in Ocean Beach.

Last sunset over the Pacific, but we’ll be back San Diego!!!

Travelogue over for the summer, days are shorter, school approaches, and these 2 schoolteachers are out of money. Anyone care to comment on what I might be missing in my appreciation of LA? Everything was good – esp. visit with friends and the spectacular Getty Museum, but after that I’m not so sure what the fuss is about. San Diego, on the other hand, yummy.
