The plane landed in Cedar Rapids at about 8:50pm so we all ended up getting home around 9:30pm after picking up our luggage and finding the car in long term parking. It was a nice change of pace being able to get somewhere in 20 minutes or less.
I wanted to share some of the photos of wonderful California scenery I took while Westward.
|A Magnolia blossom. I haven't seen one in years.|
|The Welcome to LA sign just outside the airport terminal.|
|A friendly turtle living in the lagoon at our Santa Barbara hotel|
|Sunning themselves in Sunny Santa Barbara|
|A water lily floating lazily in the lagoon.|
|A tern, walking in the waves, and looking for dinner at Leadbetter Beach.|
|I always wondered what a Sea Grape looked like. Warning: Does not takes like grapes!|
|At Stearn's Wharf is the Longboard Grill. Delicious margaritas and food.|
|Nobody goes hungry at the Longboard Grill at Stearn's Wharf!|
That wraps up Day 1 of my California Adventure! Stay tuned for a Day 2 excerpt coming in the very near future!
