1: Max and Grace’s excellent USA adventure: San Diego – 4 days

Leaving Melbourne in fervent expectation…

After 15 hours heading east over the Pacific, via Auckland, we landed in LA, picked up a hire car, and drove down to San Diego.

Nothing like driving on the wrong side of the road while jet-lagged!

We stayed in the ‘Old Town’ area of San Diego, at a lovely hotel, hacienda style.

The Mexican food in the main drag was great, and the atmosphere was really in full swing for Halloween.

It was lovely to cool off in the pool. It was about 30C after all!

First off, we took a drive to The Coronado, made somewhat famous as a location for Marilyn Monroe in Some Like It Hot. And it was. She was. Anyway…

Spin class on the beach anyone?

Then it was off to LegoLand California…


Then a return trip on another day for LegoLand Water Park.

San Diego SeaWorld was sort of interesting, when you consider what captured animals can be compelled to do…

And Gracie got up close with a tiger at the San Diego Zoo.

Tiger Tiger Burning Bright!

Next stop DisneyWorld!!
