Charlie and I have been on the trip from Phoenix, Arizona, to Los Angeles, California.
After the Sequoias we headed west to the Pacific Ocean.
And finally Los Angeles.
We stayed in AirBnB properties all but one night. We tried to keep the nightly rate around $100. Sometimes it was a little more and sometimes a little less.
Each property was totally unique. Our first night just north of Phoenix was in a house built mostly underground.
I told you about the lovely place in Boulder City just east of Las Vegas where we stayed 2 nights. But the night we saw Celine we stayed in a gated $2.5 million mansion in northwest Las Vegas. The room was tiny and almost nothing worked. There was no air conditioning and the shower was just a trickle. The main benefit was that we felt very safe behind the electronic gates including our auto and belongings.
Next we went to a fruit grove in King’s Canyon California that served us an awesome breakfast, the best we’d had anywhere.
On the coast we stayed in a beach house in Cayugas with a view of the Pacific Ocean from both our room and outside balcony.
For the last two nights of our journey we stayed in a basic house very near LAX. Our main concern at the end was that we would be able to get to the airport for a 6:30 a.m. flight. Our host picked us up from dropping off the rental car the night before and took us to meet our plane at 4 a.m. with no further charge than the room fee.
Now we’re back home in our own home, our own room, and our own bed. There’s no place like home.
