Escape from Alcatraz

Wednesday, 11 May 2016 | Views [355]

One of our favorite things to do in a city is to take advantage of local transit. San Fran is very expensive and staying outside the downtown can save a lot of money; parking in the downtown can be as much as $60 a night on top of the $200+ for hotels.... Read more >

Morro Bay To San Fran

Tuesday, 10 May 2016 | Views [209]

Packed the car and we were off by 7am; about 4 hours to San Francisco. It was unfortunately very cloudy this morning and our plan to drive the coast was a bit of a bust. We followed it for about 40 minutes until we decided it was fruitless; we couldn’... Read more >

Relaxing at the Bay and Fish Fry

Monday, 9 May 2016 | Views [193]

If you have ever taken a long holiday – heck, even some short holidays, if you are moving a wall to a bathroom or lifting a shed to install a new floor – you know that sometimes you feel like you need a holiday from your holiday. Today we ... Read more >

The Beauty of the Pacific Coast

Sunday, 8 May 2016 | Views [190]

Being on the third floor, packing the car this morning for our trip to Morrow Bay was annoying. As you may have noticed we fell behind in the blog because of the mouse problems. Tim spend about an hour this morning uploading photos; internet at the hotel ... Read more >

Behind the Scenes

Saturday, 7 May 2016 | Views [524]

We woke up this morning around 7am, needing to do laundry we set to task. We were lucky there was a laundry-mat within 50ft of the hotel. We grabbed some coffee, with weekend cream, from the lobby and walked over. Not only was the laundry-mat inexpensive, ... Read more >

Sin City to the City of Angels

Friday, 6 May 2016 | Views [403]

Woke this morning in a bit of a rush; we wanted to make the most of our day in Los Angles, but had a 4-5 hour drive. Packed up the hotel and hit the road in a bout an hour: 7:00 AM. We were anxious to get on the highway and totally forgot to get gas;... Read more >

I'm Blue

Thursday, 5 May 2016 | Views [197]

Mornings have been rough in Vegas, not necessarily because we were hung-over, which we were, but because we haven’t been having our coffee. The HOJO generously offers in-room coffee supplies, but without our holiday/weekend morning cream, we have ... Read more >

Our Fantasy Day in Vegas

Wednesday, 4 May 2016 | Views [339]

Our legs were a bit stiff this morning from walking so much yesterday. We relaxed for a couple hours at the hotel but headed out early enough to secure our tickets for the show. We planned to get our Blue Man Group tickets, but also tickets for Fantasy ... Read more >

Las Vegas by Foot

Tuesday, 3 May 2016 | Views [258]

Woke up this morning feeling a little rough, but our plan for the day was quite relaxed. We worked on the blog for a while, figured out the picture (which is really annoying) and had some excellent sausage and cheese on fresh biscuits; all made in the ... Read more >

These Boots are made for walking.......

Monday, 2 May 2016 | Views [287]

Welcome to Las Vegas!  Our plan is to spend the first full day in Vegas shopping!  I know what you are thinking, clearly not Tim's first choice, but I assure you he has a list of 'must finds'. Driving 3500 kilometres (2000 or so miles) ... Read more >
