The Long Beach Life

After dinner with Tegans family, I headed to Long Beach to stay with Tegan and Chuck and Grandma Hetzel who is 104 years young…

The house is in Bixby Knolls, a wonderful well kept neighborhood in Long Beach… We had tons of fun waking around and exploring the neighborhood…

A visit to the Long Beach harbor to check out the Queen Mary and Russian submarine …

Then we headed over to where Chuck and Tegan lived when they first loved in Long Beach and where they first met …
The slips where try used to live

The bar where they first met…

Then Tegan and I got our shopping on while Chuck consulted…

Back home for pizzas on the grill- yum!

I had so much catching up with Tegan and Chuck – they were the hosts with the most! Thanks so much you two!

I headed home in one day on Saturday to beat the weather – once again the roads and weather were perfect…
I checked some new roads to stay off 5 – this one “Ridge route road” outside of Castaic which is apparently the old paved highway -was closed…

So I jumped back onto 5 and jumped back off at Gorman to Fraizer Park and secondary roads to 101 in Gilroy…

I arrived home before dark and beat the weather – a perfect nearly 800 miles round trip…




  1. Fun! I hope you gave Grandma Hetzel a ride—Bill

  2. Ha! I’m sure she would have loved that!
