Goin’ back to Cali (part two)

We woke up Monday morning and relaxed at the hotel for a bit before heading out to breakfast. Little Man brought his guitar so he and Grandpa M. can play together this summer.

I love these socks. Yellow and fuzzy like tennis balls.

We breakfasted at the fantastic Gaffey Street Diner.

I cannot say enough good things about this place! Biscuits as big as your head, eggs with chorizo and avocado, and gigantic blueberry pancakes.

We had the sweetest waitress. I wish I wasn’t so terrible with names. But a great time was had my all and we left with our bellies dragging along behind us.

Our next stop was at the S. S. Lane Victory. We were disappointed that we wouldn’t be in town for one of the reenactments, they look super cool. The volunteers there are really great. They’ll strike up a conversation with you, or in LM’s case, try to put you to work. I took a bazillian pictures, but here are use a few.

We got to clambor around a jeep.

And pretend to shoot some big guns.

I loved their collection of old war posters and newspapers. I could have stayed there all day.

View of L. A. from the deck.

After we left the ship, we stopped at Randy’s Doughnuts. Mmmmmm doughnuts…

I made Charles take the obligatory Annual Photo in a Hotel Lobby. When I saw him make this face, I threatened to put it on the internet and he said fine 😛

Then there was this…

A lot more of that actually.

For dinner that night we went back to Beach Pizza. It was even better than the night before. We’ll definitely be hitting them up next time we’re in town.

The next day we flew back home. It was another long day, but we were So Happy to be home. And I have a new infatuation with Pregnant in Heels. And it was awesome to show Little Man the new place. He really likes it.

So there it is. Our 4th trip to California. Good times 🙂
