Brooke and I arrived at the Orlando airport a little early. While waiting for our flight, we did a little shopping at the Disney Store in the airport. We found a good deal on a couple of Disney shirts. You can't have too many Disney shirts.
It is now 5:33 in the morning "Harryfest" time. We just finished a fabulous breakfast of cardboard bagels, plastic eggs, and fresh from concentrate Florida orange juice. We are now flying at "oh my goodness" feet above the Gulf of Mexico - about 3 1/2 hours away from California.
This is the view of the Gulf of Mexico out of our window. It is blue.
The rest of the flight from Orlando to LAX was very exciting.
Eventually we reached LA! The weather is very overcast (shades of my first trip to LA?).
We didn't have any problem getting to the Red Lion in Glendale. We're on the 15th floor with a glorious view of a parking garage's roof. We spent some time exploring the hotel. The pool is nice, but it is too cool here to swim. (The cool temperature is great after the record highs we have had in Orlando!). On the 19th floor is a lounge with a spectacular view. I'm still surprised everytime I see mountains. Having grown up in Florida. I haven't seen them very often. We do have Splash Mountain, Space Mountain, and Big Thunder Mountain in Orlando, but they are not quite the same.
