We Flew Ourselves to Disneyland


We left Portland this morning and headed south in the Cirrus. Destination: Disneyland. I know, it's August. Whatever. We're taking our daughter and her daughter (who's 5!) for her first trip to Disneyland before she starts kindergarten. I grew up in Seal Beach, so we went ALL THE TIME and it's, well, you know…a very well-known theme park to me. It'll be so much fun to watch a little kid experience it all for the first time.

We landed for gas and leg stretching in Davis at the Yolo County Airport. We saw several rounds of skydivers landing while we were there:


Flight was about 4 hours total into Fullerton. Here we are over downtown Los Angeles:


I tried to find my old loft in these photos but it's a little too dense.


Catalina Island off the wing:


L.A. Harbor:


Belmont Shore. I used to live right there:


It was pretty cool that ATC routed us right over Seal Beach — the town where I grew up:


Look at those deserted freeways!! Must be Sunday:


We found a great little Mexican place near our hotel called Tatiana's Tamales (found on Yelp) and had some tamales, mole, tacos, etc. Fantastic!! Tomorrow morning we're hittin' the park. Wish us luck!

    Your graddaughter is the perfect age for this and will,I’m sure, treasure it forever. And of course she’ll have an amazing photo record of it. Fantastic!
