California Update!!!

On Monday morning, we decided to rent a car and run around for a few days. We drove down the Pacific Coast Highway to Laguna Beach in the morning then to La Habra in the afternoon. We had lunch at a big shopping center in Newport Beach and Rachel had Cheesecake Factory Cheesecake for the first time. In the afternoon we went to La Habra to meet up with Stephen and Robin Fulton. They showed us around Hollywood, took us to the beach at sunset, and then finally to the Santa Monica pier.


This is the awesome car we rented for 2 days! It sure handled the 6 lane freeway without any problem!!




Rachel's first encounter with a real Cheesecake Factory Cheesecake!!

You can't read it, but Rach is by Marilyn Monroe's prints!

Michael Jackson tribute! His star was so popular, you had to wait in line forever to see it! It wasn't that important to us...

Wednesday: We took Molly's boat out on the ocean hoping to see some dolphins and other wildlife.

Seals on the buoy!!!! This was by a on the water bait shop, so seals and pelicans were everywhere.



These are the dolphins that we were able to see while on the boat. There were six of them hangin out by Laguna Beach!


We went to Universal Studios on Tuesday and surfing this morning. These pics are on the other camera and I forgot the cord to download them to the computer. Hopefully, we will be able to upload them soon!!!!!!
