Our hotel, not bad.
Our nicest day of the trip for weather.
One of those Santa Monica icons.
Mary, Robyn, Sean and Sommer at the Sata Monica Pier.
The dragon ride at Santa Monica Pier.
This guy kept following me. It was a little scary.
I made Sean look a little odd with my wide angle lens. I'm sure he appreciates that.
An anti-war protest next to the pier.
The required posed shot in not-so-great light. Should have used the flash.
Finally got to me my cousin Robyn and her partner Sean. Haven't seen Robyn since I was about 15.
A couple blocks from the mall...Santa Monica.
Sommer does homework while Elia swims.
The pool in Santa Monica was actually warm, unlike the others.
Our day at Universal Studios was cold with frequent hail...
Water World was canceled due to rain and hail.
The Jurassic Park ride...
Ready for some serious fun.
Heading to the lower level with the mommy ride and the Jurassic Park boat ride...
My favorite ride of the park. It made Mary sick.
A little reading as we wait for the opening.
The weather was deceptively nice before the park opened.
You always have to try silly glasses while on vacation.
You know who...
Waiting for the park to open, and anything to open...
Might as well keep reading.
Pre Universal Studios.
The second to last hotel, North Hollywood.
Holding the camera out the side window of the van.
North Hollywood weather.
Reading in North Holywood.
The rock in Morrow Bay. Morrow Bay was our favorite little town of the trip.
Under the Eucalyptus trees.
The old way to climb down, out of order...
Reading in Big Sur.
Neat waterfall with no way to climb down so we could take a shower.
Flowery overlook on another Big Sur beach.
Last shot of Pfeiffer Beach.
Two people for a postcard shot of Pfeiffer beach.
