The topic: A quick trip

----------------------------------------------
Brian had to go to Los Angeles to check on some fabricated glass to make sure it was acceptable. He asked if I'd like to go to Disneyland. It would be either Monday or Tuesday. I said I wasn't really gung-ho on Monday, but maybe Tuesday. Oh, can't do, I have an appointment. But I could blow it off! He said "No, go to your appointment, you need to go." So, Tuesday morning he says "let's go, you can miss your appointment." And I did! He dropped me off on Harbor and I walked in with all the other guests, my first stop was Disney's California Adventure. I went over to Soarin' Over California, where there was NO line! I've got pictures to prove it! It was walk on and I did. I love that ride.

I kicked around for a while, wanted to go on the Golden Zephyr, but it was down for refurbishment. I walked over to Hollywoodland and got a bottle of water and an apple. From there I walked over to Disneyland. In the Esplanade, I found our brick, smiled at it, then got in line for Dland, a short line, then went inside. I walked over to Fantasyland, checked stuff out and was going to get on the train, got tired of waiting for the train and walked back to the front of the park. I was there by myself for less than two hours. I waited in front of the train station for Brian and when he arrived, we had lunch at Carnation Cafe. Where I took a video of my coffee. Neither of us was touching the table.
After a really nice lunch, we did a little shopping. I got a longsleeved teeshirt for those times it's too warm for a sweatshirt and I don't want to bother with a jacket. Then we hit Tomorrowland. Time was a consideration because we did want to get home before sundown and we didn't want to hit traffic. The line for Space Mountain was twenty-five minutes, so we passed on that and went into Buzz Lightyear, where I got my highest score ever, 77,700. The highest before was 6,200 or thereabouts. I never realized you can see the little laser light from your spacegun and now that I knew that, I got more points. From Space Mountain we went back to Fantasyland and rode the carousel. Brian took a picture of me looking at the crowd.

And I took a bunch of pictures from the ride itself, this one was my favorite.

So, this little spur of the moment trip was fun! I'd do it again.

I'm listening to Jack Jezzro - Guitar Romance
The current weather is going to be nice

The topic: Sunset during a fog

----------------------------------------------
It's not often you can stare directly at the sun. Last Friday, I caught a glimpse of the sun setting behind a fog bank. The fog came in on Thursday night and just hung around all day Friday. It sure made for a nice sunset visual.
