Time to Go

26 October 2009 | San Diego
Steve - Sunny
Well we've done Disneyland and snorkelling with Garabaldi fish. Our time in California is coming to an end.

And it hasn't all been good. The other night we struggled, as people here sometimes do, with what to do with the left over lobster.

In California, there is an endless supply of dog poopie bags wherever you might be walking your dog.

People are friendly and all the toilet seats have a supply of little tissue thingies so that your bum never has to touch real plastic.

But alas, we saw Islas Coronados in the distance as we pulled in to San Diego. It was kind of like watching the last of the mountains disappear on Vancouver Island as we said goodbye to Canada.

Tomorrow we say goodbye to the United States and hello to Mexico. It's very cool. And we are pretty sure Mexico will have endless riches too. Perhaps not poopie bags and toilet seat tissues, or endless California hot showers, but something different to offer I'm sure.
