Long Beach Harbor & Sea World

Sunday we were invited to cruise Long Beach harbor on friends Jay and Helga's yacht. We have done this before and knew it would be a great day. It rained a little bit on the way there and I was worried, but by the time we left the docks the weather was great.

Looking back at Long Beach.
There were a few clouds, but the sun prevailed.

Kathy and Jerry went; so did Ray's brother Mike.

Tuesday afternoon we decided to go to San Diego - we've been wanting to go lately, but it just didn't work out. So we just decided to go and were packed and down the street is less than 30 minutes. We made it there quickly and were able to get a room at the Catamaran Resort on the 12th floor. What a view of Mission Bay!

 See the ocean beyond the bay.

For dinner we went to Hodad's. It was on the Diners, Drive-ins & Dives show. There we had a bacon cheeseburger and onion rings. We don't eat that stuff much these days so it was a treat.
The sunset after dinner.

We spent the night and then headed to Sea World. When we got there a man with a camera asked Ray, "What are your plans for the day?" Ray answered and let them tape his response and then they gave him two free tickets. Not bad when it costs $69.99 to get in.

Here's a view of the bay from Sea World
We had a great day and left in the afternoon and headed home. Again we had good traffic and made it home in good time.

It was great fun to just do a spur-of-the-moment thing and what luck to get free tickets!
