Week #10: December 17, 2017 to December 23, 2017

This week we are in Carlsbad, CA.  The Carlsbad Inn Beach Resort is right on the beach in a quaint little town south of L.A.  Day 1 was spent relaxing around the resort but the second day we went back and finished Route 66.  That was a 12 hour day in the car.  It took 5 hours to drive from the east side of LA ( San Bernardino) to the end of Route 66 in Santa Monica, a distance of about 80 miles.  Then, after a couple hours on the Santa Monica Pier, the traffic was insane.  5 lanes across, 70 MPH speed limit but 2 hours at 5 MPH!

On the 21st we went to Balboa Park in San Diego.  There we saw one of the most beautiful rose gardens we have ever seen.
