Here's a photo blast of our time in California...
Happy 43rd Birthday DH!!! I can't believe you're 43 already, you old fart!
We started our day in New Orleans, awoken by 3 different alarms at 4:45am. Maybe a little overboard, but we did not want to miss our flight.
During our long layover in Houston, I surprised Kerry with a new iPod nano as his was stolen. I had preloaded it with all his favorite songs and also made a playlist of all "our" songs. I had a Y connector with me, so we hooked 2 sets of headphones to it and bopped through the airport listening to our songs.
We arrived in San Diego and drove to our Laguna Beach destination. To our shock, it was in the 50's here while in the 70's back home. So much for our warm beach vacation. We were pretty zombiefied from the time change and long flights. We choose to just chill in our little Laguna Beach Inn and enjoy some down time. Sorry, no photos to share from day 1.
The majority of our plans involved the beach. Now that that was pretty much out of the question, we decided to chill and just play it by ear.
We're headed to Hollywood! We really had no clue what all to do, so we just bought a city pass and did the tourist thing. We did the Hollywood walking tour, celebrity home tour, wax museum and Kodak Theater tour. We visited the Hollywood sign on the hill, Rodeo Drive, Beverly Hills, Bel Air and the Hollywood stars on the sidewalks.
Our last full day here. The weather was finally warming up and it was time to hit the beach. While we finally got to put on the swimwear, we ended up buying a huge beach towel before we even finished our walk from the car to the beach as we were shivering. We walked barefoot along the beach wearing the towel as a blanket. We attempted to get our feet wet, one time was all we needed to decide that there would be no swimming this trip.
Time to go home. =((((
Despite the rare chilly weather, we had an awesome time and can't wait to go back. I could totally live there! Love was in the air and it was like a 2nd honeymoon.
