Note I miscued this this last night.
Sorry, but here it is live and in color.
Yes Lisa, even before the automobile, folks loved the beach. Long Beach in LA
I remember this song
by the Gatling Brothers:
All the gold in California
I have a friend that lives there and calls it ‘Crazyfonia.’ But no matter one’s thoughts of the other coast, it is an absolutely beautiful state.
Our first time in California just relaxing was 1983. Sherry usually does the map reading, we entered the state on I-15. We drove southwest to San Diego. The weather was great and everything was green. I will not cover it but we did something fairly ignorant, we crossed the border drove thru Tijuana and south looking for a good restaurant we had heard about. Then back to the States.
We hooked up the little pop-up camper we were towing and headed to LA. We found a nice park, not realizing we were next door to Disney Land. Then started the tourist thing.

We drove by the Crystal Cathedral. (On a later trip we visited a church service) there.
We drove out to see the Queen Mary which then was a Hotel. Not sure if it still is.
California is a huge state and steeped in history I would not want to live there. Sherry would be wondering when the next Quake might happen!
