We made it from Guaymas, Mexico to San Diego, CA in a short 15 hours. Not but 4 hours into the trip and the girls were griping about not being able to freely move around, complaining that their backs hurt from having to sit in one place and the general "sucky-ness" of travel by way of automobile.
Whoa, we're not in Mexico anymore! While we appreciate the smooth paved roads we had forgotten that everyone drives like a bat out of hell, you can't go anywhere for anything and not spend $100 USD and the people here are well, large. Most people would assume that Mexicans are larger people as their diets consist of lots of beans and rice and let me tell you...when it comes to larger sized humans, Americans take the cake.....then eat the entire cake, and probably ask for seconds.
It's been a fun-filled 9 days of reuniting with great friends, hanging out with my brother and meeting his girlfriend, celebrating my Grandmother's 95 birthday (yes, 95!), playing at the beach and a trip to the Wild Animal Park.
When asking the girls if they wanted to go to the beach we discovered the first drawback to boat kid life. "The water is going to be too cold". "The beach will be so crowded". Spoiled rotten kids!
Tomorrow we start the trip across the good Ole US of A, with a few stops along the way. Charleston, here we come!
