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 left Barstow by around 8.30, hoping to buy a couple of cheap bras to throw onto the Bra Tree. No Joy but we did leave Shell's thongs on a version of the shoe tree - appropriately signed of course!
Rich organised to keep the car another two days, so now we can relax a little between now and the baseball tonight. Between Barstow and Cajon Pass …
Another lazy start to the day with a 9am breakfast after a great nights sleep! This motel has been especially comfortable!

... do not need to get caught in a 6in. blanket of snow around Denver on I-70, or possibly more in Cheyenne along I-80. We return basically the same way we came, with the exception we will be seeing a bit more of Arizona.
As we drove down I-5 in California today, we discussed the fact that we are completely satisfied with seeing the countryside and the awesome views that came along ...
... the beach, a bit residential and maybe a bit dodgy but will do for our last night. As soon as we are hooked up, sneakers are on and we head for the beach to walk to the pier. It's a beautiful time of day. Fairly quiet where we are but as we get closer to the pier there are heaps more people, surfers, a film crew shooting scenes for something possibly a Korean show. In Australia we have jetty's, here they have piers with shops and toilets and at the very end is Ruby's ...
... mountains on the drive home better as the smog had lifted.
We were so pleased that Rich's cousin Marilyn and her husband, Virgil and daughter Jennifer met us on the pier for lunch. Marilyn and Virgil drove down from Hanford,CA to visit with us and their daughter who lives in Long Beach . It was great to catch up with them, even though we read about each ...
