Travel Blogs from Huntington Beach
We had a lazy day, got up late and headed into Huntingon for breakfast and a mooch around the shops. It was lovely and warm. By late afternoon we went back to the room and then headed for the beach. It was so windy, so we did lay in the sun for too long as it was taking the heat out of the sun. We went for a walk instead.
Chinese for tea …
It's amazing that even though I spent a whole year in California I still get excited about the fact we're in the OC! So quick run down of what I've been up to since I got here. I arrived late on Sunday evening (even later British time!) exhausted and hungover but so so happy to see Sally and Claire again. We had a nice chilled evening in the hotel …
... not nearly as much of a nightmare as I had imagined.... Olly visits every restroom on the site and the girls just adore running after the various characters and getting autographs and photos with them. Olly and Iain finish the day with the infamous thunder mountain ride while I take the girls to watch the parade and chase more characters around....

... the last few days I have been crusin on a bike around the shores of Huntington beach, orange county!

I think I found it when Tumaini approached me and told me that they are hosting a “Run in Kenya” that would take place in July of 2014. They told me that if I could get sponsors to support me, they would allow me to run a half-marathon in Kenya! You may ask, ...
How has this motel rated in the past?
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
