Hooray, Hooray, it's a holi-holiday

So, the time since we bought those amazingly inexpensive flights has flown by and we're here !!

The flight was good - even the Friday night traffic on the way to the airport was not too bad. Getting through immigration was a wee bit slow - but not so slow as it was for the big queue that came after us !!

We found our bags, and went to meet my cousin Jackie who was picking us up. A few text messages later and we spotted each other, so our bags were bundled into the car and we set off on our way to their house.

We've had a great couple of days being shown about and treated to some yummy meals. We have walked and walked - from Santa Monica to Venice (and back) and today we did a bit more shopping on Main St and 3rd St Promenade. Probably more looking than shopping to be truthful.

It was gorgeous and sunny when we landed on Friday afternoon (that's right - we had TWO Friday afternoons) but the "marine layer" came in and it has been a bit misty or just high cloud most of the time. That has kept the temperature a bit cooler as well.

We've had a great time and tomorrow we will set off on the next part of the adventure.
