Hail all! Just a quick one as we have no wifi in our hotel room, (which is another slice right out of a horror film; flimsy windows and grubby guests with a thirst for violence), so I am stealing wifi from a beach bar.

In short, it was a looooong drive which sat nav said would take only four hours, but it said it for the first two hours. Lots of nothingness as we left Nevada and scooched into California.

We drove for ages stopping only briefly to get food and I decided the a cool box may be handy as we are averaging 40 degrees here and liquid, other then tea, is not meant to be bubbling with heat. Was very excited when we discovered the circles K!!! I only wish we could take the cooler home. It was so hot that we put the top on and relied on the AC as everything in Lucille's was too hot to touch.

I snoozed and Dan rocked out to music until we finally arrived at our creepy hotel in San Diego. I was comforted by the friendly face in the cooker and then we headed to the beach, which is where we perch now. It is busy as it is labour day here. There are a lot of dogs and we were lucky enough to see a cheery Mexican biker grooming his poodle, (not a euphemism), before riding off into ye sunset with poodle riding shot gun. Took a photo but on the beast not on my phone.

Speaking of which, I am impressed with this phone for the good quality photos and videos. Has made my life easier.

Dan informs me we have wifi at ye next place.... If we make it, *wobbly music*, so we shall be fine. Tomorrow we go to San Diego zoo and I am very excited about that.

Both of us are good, very happy and getting quite a glowing 'top tan' as our top halves are always exposed. Do not worry, Dad, I am smothering us with factor 30 at 17 minute paranoid intervals much to Dan's joy. He is delighted that hen ever he protests I just scream, "Melanoma!" at him. He spends a lot of his time entirely slathered and looking a little bit like a miffed street mime.

Bit extra at the end for you all. We decided to dine at another Man vs Food recommendation restaurants. This one was called Phil's BBQ and the queues were out onto the street when we drove past at half five and then again when we went to eat at half seven. We ordered beef ribs expecting them to be like British ribs with bits of meat on them.... No. They were an entire cow on each rib. We barely made a dint in either of our dinners, put the rest in the doggy bags and rolled out the door. All in all good food but three portions worth in one serving. I can see why American's are fatties.
