Our New Year's Eve vacation 2009

As most people already know Roger and I went down to Disneyland for New Year's Eve. We left home around 5Am and got to our motel at about 11:30AM, traffic was pretty good. We stayed at a motel on harbor Blvd. right across the street from Disneyland's entrance so it was nice and convinient. The weather was a little cool but not cold so that was really good. Our motel had a great view of Disneyland, we were on the 4th floor and we were able to watch both the nightly fireworks and the midnight fireworks from our balcony. Disneyland was very crowded, we expected that but we couldn't believe how rude most people were. Usually when you bump someone you say excuse me or I'm sorry but these people just bumped and pushed and didn't care. We had a very nice dinner at the Blue Bayou restaurant, the one that is inside the Pirates of the caribbean ride. We love that place. We always try to have onc

We left Disneyland on New Years Day and made our way to Monterey with a short stop in a small town called Solvang

When we got to Monterey we walked from our motel down to Cannery row and we had dinner at Bubba Gumps Shrimp factory, it was so good, then we walked around a little while and then went back to our room.

We had a wonderful time but it was so nice to get home and sleep in our own bed. Also we missed Molly and Oreo a whole bunch. Since we got home we have basically been sick the whole time, now that I am feeling much better this week I plan (though I Do hold plans loosely) is to get my home cleaned and all the sickness kicked out!! I still don't have a lot of energy but figue if I just do things slowly I will be fine. Roger is doing laundry today so that is a big help.



  1. I'm so glad you both are feeling better and that you had such a nice holiday! Love the pictures...we are headed to CA for Spring Break this year, but no Disneyland for us...:( Thanks for sharing!

  2. Sounds like you had a great trip! I've never been to Solvang, but we loved Canary Row. I think we ate at Captain Jack's... for some reason that sounds right. Nice pics.. thanks for sharing your trip.

  3. Looks like a fantastic vacation! Glad you are feeling better!
