It took us almost 20min to find a parking spot, how crazy! But finally we succeeded. Dan told me this was his 1st time at Redondo Beach, awesome! Dan called the guys and they told us where they were, so we could finally meet up. It was another great day, very sunny and the pier looked beautiful.

Yay, we finally met up! Where to go? To an Irish Pub! LOL No, no more drinks for me, but the Irish Pubs are always fun, haha. We all were a bit in slow motion, hahaha. Dan had a beer, Jerome & Angel had water, I had a Coke but Daniel, Sue & Robert had Irish Bombs, pfff. These guys are hard core! hahaha. I thought they had already eaten, but not. So they ordered some food :)

Suddenly the band started to play and Jerome asked me to dance.
the gang!!!
I thought he was kidding, but not he was being serious. I owed him a dance. Ok, let's go to the dance floor! It was fun! I felt so tiny next to him :P

Well, now it was time to start moving. It was still early and we would enjoy the rest of the day walking along the pier and boardwalk. The place was crowded with families. This was a great spot to get some nice pictures! After a while Daniel told us he had to leave. He has to drive back to his friend's to return the car and then get ready to fly back to Phoenix. It has been great meeting you Daniel and hope our paths will cross soon.

The rest of us kept on walking. I even had time to find my magnet! Should we go to a bar? No, better have something sweet! I was hesitating about having an ice cream and have already decided not to have one, when Sue told me she had already paid for it and I HAVE TO have it, what a sacrifice, hehe. Well, it was a sorbet, so it wasn't that bad :P

Mmm, it was getting a bit windy and Dan told me he had to go back home to do some work... ok, it was time for me to say Good Bye. Good Bye, guys! These days have been incredible, you are incredible and hopefully we all would meet up again in my way back to Lima :)

Great write-up and I'm glad you had a great time in the Los Angeles area. Its a great place to visit and a wonderful way to break up the trip to Oz.

One comment about about picture with pirates. There's a little more behind the pirate flags and mannequins then you might think.

If you are coming back to LA, try to time it so that it corresponds with Buccaneer Days, usually a weekend in early October, this year its October 2nd. That is the weekend many Southern California boaters hoist their pirate flags, put on their craziest costumes and take their pirate boats out to Two Harbors on Catalina and have a 2 or 3 or more day "pirate party" - i.e. Buccaneer Days. (http://www.pubclub.com/losangeles/buccaneer.htm)

There is also a month long Jazz Festival going on at Avalon on Catalina. It goes over 3 weekends (http://www.jazztrax.com/jazz/catalina.html)

Just don't make the mistake of going to the Jazz Festival in your pirate outfit. And I'd rather prefer it if you didn't ask me how I know this....
