Santa Monica beach ended up being the result of our decision!
Thankfully Neecie used her phone to guide us and make things happen.
And later on our drive, we found out there was a prank played on her while talking to her Siri, her name had been changed to "hot stuff". :) It was the FUNNIEST thing!!!!! :) Like I said, we laughed a lot on this trip!
We made it out there just fine with our wonderful driver Brandon. Can't thank him enough!!!!
As we were leaving the pier, when we decided to cross the street...I noticed that instead of beeps for the sight-impaired - there was a voice that kept saying WAIT!!! WAIT!!! WAIT!!! and I was totally amused by that because it sounded like a person actually standing there, telling you to WAIT. :) Here is the video I took towards the end of our journey.
Thanks to Rae for bearing with me to go back to the ORIGINAL crosswalk! I lost track of how much we walked, but we were TIRED!!!! Just as we were about to "break"....it was our meetup time for the next adventure. I asked if they could drop me off at my cousin's house to see family since they were having a BBQ at their house, only 6 miles away. :) It was decided! They could drop me off, and then come back and get me. I was SO thankful, you don't even know!!!!! :) (and then a bird pooped on my shoulder!)
So I made it to Jodi's...and had a blast catching up and realized oh yea, my cousin Dave was there too! I really didn't have a clue that he had moved there and had to do a double take. :) Met Jodi's fiance too, and it was allllll good! :) By then, the sun came out. OF COURSE>
|My cousins!!!! (from South Dakota)|
After our adventures....we headed back to the dream center area to kill some time. :) Again. :)
I'm pretty sure we had dinner at the Dream Center...i think...they were only serving 2 meals...
and then we saw some great sights while the WHOLE city was celebrating the 4th of july. Seriously - it was like a christmas tree!!!!
at 1:15 - it flies up to us and hits her! And sparks fly across my cam. :)
Here is the view we had at the Center of the whole cityscape. it was actually AMAZING to witness the unity of celebration of this day. I was in AWE of seeing the CITY light up. Most of the times here in DFW we don't get to set anything off - but everyone everywhere was setting off lights and roman candles and their own fireworks. It was surreal. :) Thank you LA. :)
Happy Fourth of July and Independence Day!
I also forgot to ADD..............in between our "break" time....a bird pooped on me....but i didn't get the photo evidence, til JUST NOW!!!!! lol!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Right before I went to my cousin's house....herez the shot. :)
