Apple and I don't play together well. I was able to blog from my iPhone ~ just once. The next time I tried, I could not find any pictures to download. I tried the iPad a couple days later. Got a blog post all done complete with pictures. It would not let me save and post it. I tried for three days. ARGH!!! If you post from your iPhone or iPad, what app do you use? Do you have any suggestions for me or am I a lost cause?
Anywho . . . we are home. Landed in Cleveland about 6:45 am yesterday. I don't think I've ever taken the redeye before and I'm not a real fan. We flew Spirit. Bare bones but you can't beat the price. The seats (I think they forgot to add the padding) don't even recline and needless to say, I got very little sleep. It was good to get away but it is great to be home :) We were busy every day and I need a vacation to recover from my vacation.
While in the LA area, we got to visit the job site where my son is working. It is the same house he was working on when we were there last fall, a $30 million property that has been taken to the studs.
Son Bill and DSO at the front entrance.
Great room fireplace, I believe 16th century, which he is helping to restore.
Here Bill is pointing to a piece of wood he replaced.
In the distance, a famous TV doctor's house. (Hint ~ Dr. P***)
On the Strand, Hermosa Beach. Beachfront homes.
This cool trash can is in front of an ice cream shop in Hermosa Beach.
Can you believe they had to put this on the bottom? I thought it was for people walking dogs, but Bill said it was meant for the drunks, especially the 4th of July weekend (like they would read that?). So disgusting.
We went whale watching on the Pacific. Bill told us whale season was over, but we decided a boat ride would be nice. We had a mariachi band playing on the lower deck the entire time.
A HUGE container ship arriving in Long Beach, a major shipping port. It's unreal how big those ships are. They look so top heavy.
Those dark specks are not birds but porpoise jumping out of the water. Though we didn't see any whales, we did see hundreds of porpoise and some sea lions.
Son Bill (aka #1 bad boy).
. . . and looking out towards the ocean.
Thanks so much for stopping by. Lots more to share.
Pug hugs :)
