... day wear or night time attire. I can hit a trail or a club and not worry about fitting in or being hot. This is a great breathable shirt and is UVA proof. It also has the button up arm straps if you want to make it short sleeve.

... got closer to shore, passing an oil rig (fascinating....) and Ruby's Restaurant where we had had breakfast just a few days before and then we were heading into harbour, up the fairway with the sun slowly sinking out of sight. After all that hard work we went back to John and Marilyn's house, climbed into the jacuzzi and ate pizza – how else could you end such a fabulous couple of days?The rest of our visit flew by. John had to shoot off ...
We arrived in San Pedro after dark.
I was a little disappointed as I would have liked to explore the city a little with daylight during our first day there.We had already booked one night at the Sunrise Hotel through expedia. The hotel was not fancy but it was clean and the staff was friendly (which is all we really need in a hotel). We are not fancy people plus the price was right.
After settling into our hotel (Sunrise Hotel), we decided to find a ...
... stop was at Isthmus Cove on the northwest end of the island. It, as well as many other coves and bays on the island, are filled with buoys. The island is 30 miles off the coast of California and is located right in front of the Los Angeles area. With all those folks close by this is a very popular place to vacation. The buoys are unique in our experience. The bow of the boat is tied to a buoy and the stern is tied to an anchor. This ...

The recent renovations give the hotel a great spruced up look and feel. New furnishings, fresh paint and a good decorative touch everywhere. To get the best view, you must earn it. Climbing staircase after staircase from front to back of the hotel is not for the weak of limb or heavy of luggage. But once to the top floor, well the view has to be the best in town. The top, 4th floor, has three rooms overlooking the harbor. We were in the middle room. A fantastic view. Better yet would be the corner room which also would view the mountain side. I'm guessing the 3rd floor is a great view too. Top floor costs a bit more - probably for a reason.
Not much in the way of services or information to be found in the lobby The desk staff were very friendly and helpful. But there was a notable lack of information regarding the area and the desk staff seemed to keep to the basics of check-in, check-out and room maintenance/support requests. The phone in the room was broken, so I had to run down the stairs a few times to report problems with the new heating system, request a blanket, and report that despite the wonderful renovations, the older sliding porch door had a gap in it at the top of 2 inches and the wind was blowing into the room. I saw some new porch doors on the ground - so hopefully these will be installed soon.
Bottom line - my wife loved it and rewarded me for the great pick.
