California – Last Day of Trip – Part I

This was basically the last day of the trip as the Los Angeles weather decided I needed to remember how it is out there when it rains, and I mean really rains.  But we did manage to get in a drive to San Pedro Ports o Call, and to dinner in Chinatown before the sky opened on us. I am breaking this into two posts so you can see the fun we had in San Pedro.

And just next door is another fish market.

And games for the little ones – or maybe the big ones.

Here I am “Grabbing the Bull by the Horns”

And Becky – well she is hugging it.

Here are the Brigantine Irving Johnson and the Brigantine Exy Johnson.  They are training ships, with a length of 111′ ft, they can hold 30 people.  The twin Brigantines and their youth crews are  “The Official Tall Ships and Maritime Ambassadors of the City of Los Angeles”.

And of course, Carol found flowers.

They are supposed to be fixing the area up, and there were some quaint little shops at the end of the walk.

Where of course, Becky had to propose. Hmm what does Louie have to say about this?

Nothing like a best friend.

And Bear and Bearbette were feeling left out – so here are some pictures of them posing by a couple of places.

  1. These pix are so fun! Becky being just as I remember Becky – animated and smiling, and you never know what she will do in a photo. And I saw 2 Clichés – The first fish with his mouth open is definitely a fish out of water. And I do love you grabbing the bull by the horns. Glad you got some great friendship photos too.
