By the time we had collected our baggage and cleared customs it was probably about 9am. I should also mention that it was still the 31st of July, we had just gained an extra day in our lives.
Call me foolish if you like but I had decided that we would make our own transfer arrangements from LAX
Finally a bit of good news, we were directed to the Super Shuttle stand. A very nice lady put us on her list and told us to sit on the bench and she would call us up when she had someone going our way, the good news was it was only going to cost $37. Yippee, happy with that.
Our Super Shuttle finally arrived. No problems with seating as we were the only passengers. LAX airport is huge, but it's even bigger when you circle it 3 times. The ever alert Fred happen to mention that he was either experiencing Deja` vu or we were going in circles. The driver confirmed that we where indeed circling the airport in a bid to pick up a few more fares before taking us to La Mirada. After the 3rd try, he threw in the towel, and we were at last on the way to our hotel.
It was indeed quite a long way out. We had to kill a couple of hours before we could book into our room by which time Fred & I were pretty tired. After a shower and a good nights sleep we should be ready for our big day out tomorrow when we will be checking out LA and Universal Studios.
