Jun 8, 2015 - Judy's House, Los Angles, CA

You all may be tired of reading about our phone and car problems and I promise this is the last one and it is kind of funny. We were half way to Joshua Tree when the "check engine light" and the "loose gas cap" lights both came on. We did not even had the energy to call Ford dealer in my sister's town. I may have skipped a couple of stops at At&T stores but did visit the one near my sister's house only to be told we had to contact Apple. Went to the Apple Store and received a new phone. The replacement phone was broken. Thus ends our trials...

May 31, 2015 - Arrived in June gloom before we'd even left home

As our Delta flight touched down in LA the flight attendant announced we had arrived in June Gloom (even though the date was May 31). June Gloom is a southern California term for a weather pattern that results in cloudy overcast skies during late spring and early summer. The clouds are formed over the ocean and the winds brings them onshore. Thirteen plus hours is a long time to spend couped up in an aeroplane and we wondered how the poor dears in First and Business Class were feeling? So here we are in LA having arrived three hours...

In the American Airline Lounge in Los Angeles waiting for the connecting flight to Phoenix where I am visiting my friend Terry for a week. Terry lives in Scottsdale which is a very nice part of Phoenix. She and I met when we were both working in Shanghai. Not sure what we will be doing yet other than a pedicure and lounging around the pool! For those of you who are new to my journal I want to introduce Chili.

Mar 18, 2015 - Pismo Beach, Santa Barbara, Santa Monica, to Los Angeles

Driving south again this morning to Santa Barbara, first we passed through areas popular with the rich and famous. Ronald Regean, Michael Jackson (Neverland), Meryl Streep, Jennifer Aniston, Whooping Goldberg, and Kevin Costner are all supposed to own ranches or houses here. Horse farms and vegetable growing, particularly avocados, are common. We stopped at the Old Mission in Santa Barbara, it is the best of 21 missions founded along the Californian coastline by the Spanish in the late 18th century. Hugging the coastline, our journey...

Mar 5, 2015 - Movie Land

Greetings LFOBTs (Loyal Followers of Bill's Travels), I am now in Los Angeles, CA, or perhaps better known as the City of Angels or Movie Land. You luck out on this posting because there is no photo of the LA airport area or the Holiday Inn Express hotel in which I am staying! Tonight (5 March) I leave for Auckland, NZ on Air New Zealand, which will be a long flight, but the end, I'm sure, will be worth the effort. Oh, just a reminder. As I post stuff please keep in mind that the date I use will differ from that where all of you are due to...

Mar 5, 2015 - Los Angeles

This was a free day to explore Los Angeles. We were offered a surprise day organised by Thelma and her friends Larry, Holly and Anne. They picked us up from our hotel and Larry drove us south to Long Beach to the permanent home, since 1967, of the cruise line The Queen Mary. She is a spectacular site now offering a glimpse of ocean cruising in her hey day of the 1930s and 40s, with over 50 types of wood used in the panelling. After lunch together in the Promenade Cafe, we had a very animated tour guide to show us the opulence of first...

Feb 1, 2015 - Day 1

So we were both awake at 3 am today I guess the anticipation of a 18 hour flight is just too much. Even Bella was awake, she knows something is up . Robbie brought us to the airport and we are off. We had first class seats to LAX. So nice to have that extra room and now we are relaxing in the Admirals lounge until it is time to go for the long flight. Rob is watching the game and I am just catching up on things. Now the game is over congratulations to the New England Patriots. Good night
