We took a road trip to California last week. Let me just tell you how much I love California. I love the weather. I love the scenery. I love the beach. I love the shopping. I love the Disneyland. It's just a fun place to go.
Just so you don't think I'm a Polly Anna, yes, I know California also has it's fair share of crazy people, traffic nightmares (have you heard about Carmageddon?)and high prices, let alone immigration and state budget problems out the wazoo. But we're trying to help them out a bit by spending a bit of our hard-earned money in their state.
We do what we can.
Our road trip started in San Diego. The Utah State Bar had CEL meetings there, so we started our trip with Bruce rackin' up hours of quality but boring classes. After driving 11 1/2 hours, it was time to get out and into the fresh California air. Our hotel was downtown, so we walked over to Seaport Village, a outdoor shopping center on the harbor. My hair immediately started to frizz.
USS Midway aircraft carrier that's permanently anchored as a museum on the waterfront.
The Fish Market restaurant, which is right next to the statue. Yum.
