Last day in California

Long Beach

Today we got up very late, understandably since we were still at Disneyland at 10pm last night. We drove down to Long Beach, browsed in a bookshop, spent a couple of hours on the beach then had dinner at a restaurant near the harbour in San Pedro. There's a restaurant and shopping "village" there called "Port o'Calls" but I'm not sure if this was part of it. The village was a bit upmarket but in the place we ate at there just seemed to be a lot of ordinary folks, mostly Mexicans, having a good time. Marjolein had a shrimp fajita (the fajita was actually two big slices of grilled flat bread) and I had a cold dish with oysters, squid and shrimps in tomato and fresh coriander sauce which I've unfortunately forgotten the name of. Then back to the hotel to pack the cases.
