... up so this is looking good! There is a surf shop down the road and I think I need to ride a few waves later. Plus see if we can get Jim on a stick! Hehe
OK, so we decide to take both cars as we are looking for a car wash along the way.... turns out to be an expensive choice lol but oh well, it's nice to drive down PCH with the top down.. we find a car wash and then head to HB to find a spot to park and find a coffee ...
... a few days in France in January, I realized it was time to at least TRY to learn some phrases. No matter how silly I sounded, people appreciate you attempting. I left France 26 years ago feeling like the people were rude and brash. What they are is proud of their language and want others to speak it. Or at least TRY. I found a few language apps that I've been testing out. Fodors Travel Phrases is the one I like the most. We shall see how I do! Au ...
... br> .....HB Triathlon "postponed" due to the storm we just had. Lots of big waves and strong winds made the ocean unsafe for the swim. Since the run was along the shoreline, the run was cancelled as well. The city hopes to reschedule the race for sometime in June, but we won't be here. They told Mike that if he couldn't make it then that they would give him credit towards his next race ...
We are getting used to where everything is now. Just in time to leave tomorrow. It is misty again this morning and we have figured out that the smog in this city means it takes til 12 for the sun to come out and it's gone again by about 4pm. We breakfast at IHOP again and then back on the bus to head on the Starline red route and swap to the Yellow Route to head to Santa Monica. It is freezing and we are glad for the extra jumper we bought today. We also take care not to ...
... deeper than 1m as all I remember from that first dive was trying to dive down a few metres to shoot a piece of coral or miracle upon miracles a fish but I was being strangled by the housing unit in it's strap round my neck as I forced myself down a few metres. Within 2 seconds I was being whisked to the surface again thanks to the ultra buoyant life-saving abilities of this idiotic product.

TravelPod Member ReviewsOceanview Motel Huntington Beach
Arrived at rush hour and the motel is right on the Pacific Highway 1. The noise was terrible even with the door and window closed. The road did quieten down overnight so we did sleep.
The bed had a plastic sheet on it so it was quite sweaty. there was way too much furniture in the room so you could hardly move. It did have a fridge & a microwave. We found dirty wet towels on the back of the bathroom door from previous guests.
Out of all the motels we've stayed in over the past 18 nights, this was probably the worst. It needs updating. No hairdryer - you have to ask for it!
There are others nearby which looked nicer for the money we paid
