What we did:

- Woke up at 3am for a 7am flight
- Hit horrific turbulence over the central valley
- Made it out of the airport and to Redondo Beach in record time
- Had a beer with a friend
- Had lunch (and beers) with my brother, sister-in-law, niece and nephew
- Hit the desert at around 6pm
- Wandered the parking lot looking for the unit while desperately needing to use the bathroom
- Unpacked
- Got dressed
- Hit Melvyn's and got hammered
- Made all kinds of plans to go back to Melvyn's but never did
- Had coffee at the Coffee Bean every day with the same people
- Laid in the sun for hours daily
- Had afternoon coffee at the Coffee Bean
- Had casual beers in street-side restaurants
- Ate too much Mexican food
- Ate the same meal twice in a row
- Rode the tram to the top of Mt. San Jacinto

- Took pictures in front of Liberace's house and in front of Elvis' house
- Drove no less than 30 miles every day
- Didn't find the farmer's market
- Had someone almost walk in on us with their own key to our unit
- Fed ducks
- Petted dogs
- Got attacked by bits of cellophane that very well could have been a snake
- Sprayed Raid on the ants
- Went to a street fair
- Made friends with the guard
- Never tried a date shake
- Had cocktails at a friend's house
- Saw "somebody" at the museum
- Drove to Laguna Beach
- Drove to Huntington Beach
- Got lost in Long Beach
- Flew home in the exit aisle with no intention of saving anyone beyond ourselves in the event of a plane crash.

I always have these grand illusions about blogging about a vacation, and it never happens. We had big fun. Cece is considering buying a condo. We'll be back because we already know pretty much everyone there.
