We arrive in San Francisco! We really feel like we've landed on another planet as we take the airtrain to the rental car pick up- fresh sea air, mountains, and desert.  It’s amazing! 

  Luckily Alamo didn’t have the small cars so, we get a free upgrade to a mid-size vehicle but, it doesn’t have power locks.  I didn’t think cars like that even existed anymore!?!  We prepare for a long drive that we think is even longer because the GPS isn’t calibrated to the west coast!  After we figure out that we should arrive around 4:30 instead of 7:30 we feel much more relieved. 

  The drive down was really our no- thrills trip.  We drove through the desert, which was amazing- then got really monotonous.  Then, got really hot… The temp outside was 115 at one point!  Finally we make it to Long Beach!  It was the perfect arrival- greeted by the family I’ve not seen in 5 years!  We were immediately given sparkling water, which is a rarity to find at delis/gas stations this trip.  Then, amazing wine and snacks, followed by an incredible dinner!  Delicious!  Needless to say we were in bed super early.
