San Diego and the grand finale

April 7, 2013 at 10:18 am Leave a comment

For the big finale to our California Adventure we drove south to San Diego a spent an enjoyable day roving the shady walkways seeing all the animals. Not a roller coaster nor simulator to be seen but we did enjoy the birds eye view of the zoo from the rickety tin buckets known as the Skytrain. Highlight of the zoo was definitely seeing giant pandas up close – especially the cub atop a very tall tree. Apparently after nursing and unaware the zoo is safe from predators, mummy panda sends the baby up the tree for safety. When she wants him to come down she shakes the tree! They call fall 50feet or so unharmed! Perhaps we mollycoddle our offspring!

Spent a Comfortable night in an inn that promised just that, and headed back to LA and the skatepark at Venice Beach for the last few hours of freckle promoting before crying over handing the mustang back to Alamo at LAX. US customs confiscated the sunshine I’d enticed into my case so after a very pleasant Virgin Atlantic flight we found Heathrow still in the depths of winter and our freckles faded as we got the M4 with a sprinkling of snow.

P.s the City Pass was a very good idea as it saved queueing and included the zoo and Skytrain as well as 3 day Disneylans with one early morning admission; universal studios and alas we had no time to visit Sea World…next time! You’ve always got to leave something to return for!
