Today I’m telling you about LA, Carlsbad and Las Vegas.
We start off with LA where we went to see Wheel of Fortune live on set and lots more, like actors walking about. I had my photo taken with some. The day after we arrived we went into the city. We went to the art district were there was loads of street art. And guess what the place in the art district were the guy who showed us around, the DJ Skrillex used to live there and you still see him skate boarding around the neighbourhood. Then there was a little japan which was like a town which had Japanese toy shops and restaurants. The toy shops where amazing they had really snugly toys and lots of Pokémon toys. We had sushi and it was amazing and really delicious.
The next place we went to was Carlsbad, San Diego where we stayed with some of our friends. There was a private swimming pool on the housing estate, it was a bit posh. The day after we arrived we went to the pool for a bit then went to see the sunset at the beach it was so peaceful there it felt like home. The next day we went to see a bit of San Diego where we got stuck in a massive traffic jam. We then left the next day and said bye and that was the end of our trip in Carlsbad but I liked David and Carolyn because they made it feel like being at home.
We then went to Las Vegas where we stayed in the flamingo hotel where they had a massive swimming pool which had a water slid that was humongous, well not that big but I like the word humongous. We also went on a helicopter over the Hoover Dam and the Grand Canyon. When we were in the helicopter there were people camping and mining for gold they looked like tiny ants from where we were. Las Vegas was so amazing I also got to do virtual reality and had the best ice cream ever I had salted caramel and some sweets on the to. It’s also so hot in Vegas as it’s in the desert like are car journey into Las Vegas was so hot and there were lots of cactus's and the rock formation was amazing. We went on the High Roller where we got to look over Las Vegas it was a Ferris wheel but better.
We first went from Lincoln city to a town called Brookings. Before we got into California we had to go through a small border where you weren’t allowed to take any fruit into the state. When we got into Brookings we found a motel that had a swimming pool so we nipped in there for a bit.
The next day we first had our breakfast at the breakfast bar in the motel. We then went to see a garden which was supposed to have lots of lovely flowers, turns out all of the flowers are dead but we did get to see a family of Deer’s. We then went to have tea at a Mexican restaurant and the food was so spicy. After that we headed up to the pawn shop where I brought a ‘Walking Dead’ comic and they had a coke bottle that was from 1970.
Today was the last day in Brookings. In the afternoon was so funny, dad and mum told me we were going to a restaurant but then we came into the cinema. I said “why are we in the cinema? “ and turns out dad had booked us tickets for the new Jason Bourne movie. The movie was amazing I’d rate it 10 out of 10.
The next morning, we had to find a motel to stay in. First We saw some trees called the Redwoods they were so cool and so tall they were over 1000 years old and we even got to drive through one that had been carved out. They also have a really thick bark that is fire resistant. We even saw a big deer that looked at us straight in the eye. We went inland a bit because the motels on the coast were so much money and we finally got to a place called River View Garden Resort where you can canoe down the river for free.
The next day we went canoeing down the river I did some of the canoeing for a bit but then dad did it for me (thanks dad). When we got back I went to stroke the owner of the motels dogs, one was called Mimi who was 12 and one was called Pumpkin who was 9.
Today mum and me headed off to the beach while dad sat at home uploading our blogs. When we were at the beach I caught a fish and called it Spiky, I obviously put him back where he came from and there were a family next to us who had caught some lobsters that were massive. We then headed back and we played in the water for a bit just before we went to bed. We then finely got to bed after an exciting day.
Today I’m going to be telling you about my 3 days in Lincoln city.
The 1st day we had to find a motel on highway and we ended up staying at the Nordic Viking Hotel which was right next to the beach. When we got inside the office to get are room I noticed that your allowed to rent movies, there were really good movies like ‘X Men Last Stand’ and Fantastic 4, and much more, plus the room had an amazing view of the beach. The first thing I did when we got in is I got dressed in to my swimming gear because there was a swimming pool and a Spa so I had a swim for a bit. We then had dinner just before we were about to have a walk down the beach so when we had finished we went to the beach as we had decided earlier on. When we were walking back I spotted a sand castle that looked like it was supposed to be a temple of some kind so we took lots of pics of the sand castle. When we had finally got back we went to bed after a long day.
We decided yesterday we were going to travel outside of Lincoln city to do some whale watching. The first thing we did when we woke up was we went to breakfast were there was a breakfast room which the guests were allowed in like us and you got to choose what breakfast you wanted. Of course I chose waffles. Fact: in America everything has sugar in it (true). When we had finished breakfast we got into the car for our small trip. The first place we stopped at was the whale watching where we got to see some amazing views of them coming up and down. Fact: whales have to be underwater for 3 mins before they can come up. We also got some really good pics of the whales from head to fins. We then went to Devils Punch Bowl were part of The Goonies was filmed lots of people surfed and we saw lots of surfers. We also saw some baby squirrels wondering around happily in nature. We then headed back to the motel. When we got back we had dinner and watched a documentary on the history about D-day and then there was another documentary on the history of Walt Disney.
The next day me and mum went surfing at The Devils Punch Bowl. We were doing it with 2 kids and a guy who worked at the surf shop and what was so funny about him is every time I did something he went sick man or awesome he was really funny. It was really fun doing the surfing there were waves up to 6 f.t *WOW*. After the lesson mum and me relaxed on the beach for a bit. We then went home and went in the spa and went for a swim in the swimming pool I also came back to our room and played on the iPad for a bit. We then went to bed as we all were very tiered and the next day we needed a lot of energy.
