I highly recommend this motel; at $49.50 + tax for three of us the 1920's stucco-style cabin was simple and comfortable and included a breakfast nook and a well-appointed separate bathroom. Then of course, there's the old cars and memorabilia to peruse out in the courtyard.....great photo ops! If you aren't too attached to all the trimmings and associated costs, this is the hotel for you.

We head south out of Las Vegas to hook up to Route 66 again at Barstow to complete the journey. Just before Barstow we come across a 1950's diner in the middle of nowhere called Peggy Sues. We ...
... on Facebook. We ate lunch at Bubba Gump Shrimp on the pier. What a fun place and beautiful big beach.
Rhett, I took the picture of the snake for you. It was a little bigger than the one you almost stepped on at the campground!
Santa Monica Pier is the unofficial end of Route 66 so that was our destination. There is also a plaque dedicated to Will Rogers ...
... we just needed three seats we could pull down the rear two seats and get an even spacier loading compartment where we could now easily store all our bags. :) Inside there were only single chair sests, no "sofa" even in the back. :) There were even seperate overhead air nozzles for your air-condition convenience. So all in all a nice car upgrade. :) As we were cruising down the freeway in our new improved rental we saw a freight-train with six engines and (according ...
