Elmira Ontario to Oregon USA travel blog

Hello Family & Friends:

Well, we have been in Los Angeles for the past 2 days. We stayed in Burbank California the first night. Did not do much as we arrived late evening. Had dinner at a wonderful seafood restaurant. Did not see any stars. Drove to Santa Monica the next day and stayed at the Ocean View right on the beach across the the boardwalk. Took a whole day tour of the entire area. We were at the pier where the stars have their yachts. Moved to China town, Farmers Market, Kodak Theatre,Stars homes, hollywood boulevard, Rodeo Drive. A whole lot more too numerous to mention. We had such a great time. So glad we took this side trip. Was not planned, just happened. Walked to a restarant just outside our hotel and had an amazing meal. We did walk about 4kms looking for a Benihana. We eventually found it but, could not get a reservation at 9:00 in the evening. Everyone comes out to eat at 10:00p.m. Life just begins. Our room was the most expensive we have paid since starting the car adventure and it was the worst room. We were really fortunate to even get a room this particular day as everything was booked for Valentines Day and Presidents Day or Family Day on Monday. It took us over an hour to get a reservation. So can not really complain. We are heading back up the coast today, Monday. Chatted with Zack who is in charge of getting the motor home put back together. He informed us that he wants part of next week as well to finish. Well that did not sit toooooo well with me and he changed his toon. He said they would do overtime so we could get out of there on Friday. I am not holding my breath. But, when I see him, he will be holding his.

The weather for the last few days has been in the high 80's and low 60's. We are planning on golfing tommorrow in Carmel by the Sea. We then will probably just stay here in Monteray for another day. We are only 2 days away from Oregon. Have not done a whole lot of shopping yet. Rodeo drive just did not have anything I was interested in. (joke joke) more like cannot afford! I did not get great pictures of rodeo drive as we did not get there until late evening. Stores were still open but my camera did not come through for me.

Well, hope all is well at home. Please e-mail me and let me know how you are all doing. Thanks mimi for your update. When I get back to the motor home, I will send pics as I have not taken any of the inside. You can see it at Holiday Rambler.com then click on Navigator and just follow the prompts.

Love you all hugs, Cliff & Yvonne
