well we landed in L.A after our flight from hawaii where we nearly never made it due to the flight being way over booked!
we were offered $400 dollers each to give up our seats but hey its not as if we need the money!!!! haha!!!
after spending a night in luxury at anna's aunt and uncles it was off on our first road trip!
we drove up highway one to pismo beach where the weather was freezing so we headed back down the coast to santa barbara! we still couldn't afford the prices so it was a case of seaching out all the bargains for tea and still no drinking!!!
it was back down the coast to L.A to welcome the Dodds who flew down from vancouver for the wkend!
and they treated us to a luxury wkend in palm springs. we stayed in a 50's style retro hotel where all the rooms were themed and we had the leopard lounge!!!! ..... were sure we met members of the mafia who were staying there from new jeresy! the soprano's sprung to mind big time!!!!
it was back to L.A again and goodbye to the Dodds who were off home after there flying visit!( see you in fiji!)
we managed to fit in the magic mountain roller coaster park and universal studios( were still big kids really!)
now thats us all set for our flight tommorrow to south america for the next part of our adventure!
