Running Away

We don't need much of an excuse to run away together. This time it was San Diego. Our jet landed in Long Beach on Thursday morning and our bags were right there when we arrived to claim them. The rental car was literally across one narrow street from baggage claim and five minutes later we were on our way to Disneyland (K's FIRST TIME EVER)!

Did you know that a fresh apple at Disneyland will set you back two bucks? We were gouged twenty-five dollars for lunchtime sandwiches. Other than that, we didn't spend any money at Disneyland. We rode all the rides and had a lot of fun. We were lucky that the weather was nice and the lines moved along rapidly. We just enjoyed ourselves but didn't take any photos because we walked into the place with nothing but t-shirts, jeans, and Visa debit cards in our pockets. We got a kick out of the locomotive/train ride ("And here's the Grand Canyon as we know it today, Folks!"). And then...

We went next door with our park hopper pass to California Adventure. Loved Soarin' Over California and loved California Screamin'! In fact, when we got off the roller coaster, we got right back in line to do it again (J kept her eyes OPEN the whole ride on the second time). We were sorely tempted by the eight dollar turkey legs, but managed to resist. After having all our fun, we took off for San Diego. We checked in and then treated ourselves to a lovely Mexican dinner. Ah...vacation.


  1. I can't believe you went to Disneyland! It is the perfect time of year to go. I wouldn't drop $2 on an apple but i would on a Dole Whip near the Tiki Room!
