Well, after touring a sub, it was time for some outdoor site seeing. So we took the free bus over the bridge to see what was around town. We probably drove about a mile and got off and there was pikes pier, not the same as before but got some pictures. It sure was empty for early afternoon. Here are some pics.



Chris wanted something to eat...Famous Daves BarBque


There chips very crunchy...and good


The young ladys job to make a face and explain the sauces.



Chris had a sandwich I forgot what kind


I had chicken wings..


Next post more photos.....

There were a few ships you coud tour but decided to wait and spend my money over on catalina. It was a beautiful day.





I love boats!!!





After all that walking around we decided to take the free bus to Wally World to get our soda for our cruise. By the time we got back it was almost time for the splendor for her sail away and then get ready for our meet with Alison and Fran.

I was thinking Hmm.. I think the splendor left about 5pm so Chris and I went out on deck and was waiting for her sailaway. Now I confess I also frequent another forum for cruising. And there is a roll call forum for your cruises. I got to talking with this really nice lady...Foxesden1, she was staying on the Queen Mary as well. The splendor was late leaving, but while standing there this lady walked and mentioned that the Splendor was late in leaving and she figured out who I was and then I got the picture of who she was. What a way to have a dis meet...she does frequent this site as well..



She has a lovely family. But she came out by herself. We told her we would meet her and her family by the check in for our cruise in the morning.

We said our good byes until tomorrow. Now its time for the next dis meet, with two wonderful ladies. Okay Alison, I think Chris has found another favorite place to eat besides Famous Daves. It was an excellent choice and the food was excellent and prices were awesome. I was glad to have gone there. I will go back. I only took a few photos, as I wanted Alison to be able to share her own pics and take on things. We really enjoyed our time with both of you, and thanks for picking us up. It is nice meeting people when you spend time talking with them on a forum. Here are a few pics. I hate myself in pictures.









Up next some more photos from queen mary and our last night before the cruise. Ask questions I dont read minds......

Usnuz it's weird to see a place I see often featured in a TR!

So where did the goodies come from? Rocky Mountain Poison Company?

Thanks for sharing the Long Beach pictures. Brought a smile to my face.

Did you just have a random DisMeet with the other lady? WOW! And not at Disney!



That's great pics of you, Alison and Fran. Wish I were there.
Waiting on Alison's pics and your Catalina ones....

They have alot of places to photograph there. I love light houses too.

It was random. She spends time on here and the other forum. She was very nice. We chose the same excursion as well.

That's great pics of you, Alison and Fran. Wish I were there.
Waiting on Alison's pics and your Catalina ones....
I love the outfits! I love the riverboat. But I love boats!

Just found your trip report. I'm on board.

Those subs made me extremely claustrophobic. I think I need to go open a window.
