Plan A ended up with plan B think we stay right here.

Where are we today ?


        Today we had a plan. At least we thought we had a plan. We wanted to take a drive to Long Beach California and tour the Queen Mary.  A bit more research and told us a 90  minute drive. Pay for parking and $25:00 each to do a self guided tour of the ship. Not really in our budget so we canned that idea and decided to just enjoy the great weather we have here.
         Walkabouts the resort, puttering around and we had another great day.
wanna fish here ?
          It is a very nice resort lots to see and do, except for the road noise right beside I-10, probabaly not come back here again as nice as it is.
          We did enjoy some more reading in the shade. new book for Suzie today, below.
        Then I gonna whip up dinner tonight. Hot pork sandwich (w/gravy), creamy whipped potatoes, and some steamed broccoli sure hit the spot.
no Weber Q tonight
       That was our fun day here in California, hope you had a great one too!
       Thanks for stopping on by.

  1. With a 90 minute drive each way, I would probably can it too. You never know what kind of traffic you'll be running into either so it could have been an all day event. Duchess probably wouldn't like to be left all alone all day long either.

  5. $25 is way more than we would pay also.

    1. Plans are written in chalk so we can do what we like. Thats why back up plans are nice.

  7. Just think of all the crazy traffic you avoided by staying put in the park.

    1. It was the best choice that we agreed on.

  10. Just think how relaxed you were by dinnertime as opposed to how frazzled and broke you'd be if you had to drive to Long Beach and then tour the Queen Mary.

  11. Smart move! You turned me off at 90 minutes in LA traffic.

  12. I don't like paying for stuff either ... especially ... with you and Suzie! that's $50! am I a whiz at math or what! anyway lots of videos on the Queen Mary ...

    Not much of a tourist type place goer... too many free things to see ~ I did do Hearst Castle in San Simeon years back... it was really fun seeing that kind of opulence and the history?! The ceilings were different in each room and the view! ... can not imagine anyone having that kind of money ~ well, yes, I can imagine but jeeeez

    Have you been on Highway 1? it's really not for huge ol rigs but parts of it are okay. Just a magnificent highway. The prettiest part of California to me.
