In Search Of Some Sun

So, we've left winter in Auckland and have flown off to find some sun here in 'Merica, y'all! :)

On the plane and ready to go. ^^^

I couldn't resist taking a selfie in the coolest aeroplane bathroom I've ever been into! ^^^

Just look at some of those crazy book titles on that wallpaper! Love it! ^^^

Hello, California! ^^^

We arrived Stateside on the 4th of July to lots of flags, everybody dressed in red, white and blue and some awesome fireworks shows last night. 

This is the view from our hotel bedroom window. ^^^

And after doing a bit of unpacking, we headed off down to Venice Beach to wander around and have an early dinner.

There was quite a vibe down there, lots of interesting people and a good few  "Happy 4th!" wishes.

All in all, a good first day was had by everyone. I love travelling, seeing new places and having new experiences, but an added bonus on this trip so far has been getting to see how our kids are experiencing and perceiving new things. The things that they notice, point out and comment on, and how they feel about certain experiences has been an unexpected and pleasant surprise for me. I think they're at great ages for travelling and it's going to be such fun enjoying this trip with them.

And now I must get ready for a new day 'cos there are things to do and places to go, you guys. :)
