I got in Monday morning, later than planned because of a stupid delayed flight on United because there were "low clouds" in San Francisco. That's why jets fly IFR right? Plus, how is it worse than landing in snow storms, which they do ALL the time. My whole experience that day was a reminder how much I hate United Airlines and LOVE Southwest. All the airlines should model Southwest, they are fast, convenient, no hassle, FREE bags, fun staff, etc, etc. Plus, they are actually profiting (I think) and none of the others are(hence the recent bag charge...) But whatever, I got there and we went straight to the beach!
Here's Grace showing off her bike riding skills!
It's about a 6-7 mile trip one way from their apt to the beach, so we took the good old beach cruisers! It was fun and hot!!!
Yay for the beach! Even at 5pm it was nice. It was high tide though so we had to keep moving further and further up the beach.We tried posing, but it was a little awkward cause we were on this ledge that I was falling off of. The next day we went to the beach pretty much ALL day and of course I got sunburned and so no pics of that day. Wednesday we went to Sony Studios and saw like 3 famous people. Just kidding. Julie has a client that is working on the movie 2012 and invited us to come see her work. I can't believe some people work 6+months on a 30 second (or less) clip of the movie. Not very glamorous. We also learned that the movie previews are created way before any shooting or special effects. That makes for very pressured deadlines on everyone else to get the movie ready for showtime. This movie has already been pushed back!
After Sony we went to this great burger place, The Apple Pan, and then took off for Santa Monica.And finally, our last night, we went to dollar taco night and when we went to use the bathrooms, there was a stall with TWO toilets in it. I just had to document this! I know this might be even weirder, but one of my freaky nightmares is that I have to go to the bathroom REALLY badly, and the only place to go is either an open toilet or a stall with two toilets! Now I know it really could happen in a place like this....AHHHH
Here we are on the Ferris Wheel.!
I flew home early today on Southwest and it was SOOO much better! Yay for cheaper, better flights. Thanks girls for a Girls Vacation! Here's to next year:)
