PF Chang's, Nixon and Long Beach

December 31st, 2008 at 07:42 pm

Happy New Year everyone!

I tried posting this earlier,but lost my connection.

We just got back from seeing Marley and Me. 3 hankie movie. So good.

Spent: $24 for 3 matinee movie tickets (they finally let me pay for something!)
----

Yesterday we had a long day, but it was a good day.

First we stopped at the President Nixon library and museum.

My dad stepped into the discussion with Winston Churchill and other to lend an American point of view.



Then of course all of us had our picture taken by the Berlin wall.





Later we stopped by the Glass Cathedral where Robert Schuller (sp?) is the pastor. It was quite pretty and very large.

Finally we arrived in Long Beach. We all were quite hungry since we hadn't eaten since that morning.

After quite a bit of searching, we found a PF Chang's. I'd heard of it before, but never eaten there. I'm so glad we did! They had a good selection of vegetarian dishes, and we had to end of course with the Great Wall of Chocolate. Smile

After eating, we walked along the marina. There were a number of interesting shops, but we became like little kids in the hat shop. I really should have taken a video of that. Smile

Finally, before heading back, we saw the Queen Mary all lit up. My grandma received a phone call from a friend who had sailed on it in the 1960's.



Here is a picture of how there can be no snow in Loma Linda, but not too far away the mountains are covered with it. Smile



*P.S. I'm loving my camera. Big Grin

    I enjoyed your composition of the Queen Mary all lit up like that with the reflection. Is Loma Linda on the coast?

    I dont like PF Changs. I have been there several times trying to "like it" because everyone loves it- but I dont.

    Thanks Amber. I rather like that picture myself. Smile
    Baselle, Loma Linda is close to Los Angeles, but is within a couple hours of the coast. The shot I took of the Queen Mary was from a good bit away - I was glad it turned out okay, not too blurry.

    Gamecock, I'm sorry you don't like PF Chang's. It was my first time there, and I was just happy to find a place with good vegetarian selections and not overly expensive.
