  • Trip Report World of Color Crazy time - Very Nice!

    PS. What happened to the painting of the woman that won that contest during the 50th that was on the wall in POTC? The Hills, we decided that while in Hollywood, we better stop at Heidi and Spencer's favorite Mexican joint. Turns out, this place is incredible!

    Had to throw this in there, CRUSHED a 10K trail race up here in the Bay.

    Campsite at Cardiff State Beach...looking through our board short drying line at Monica and Fred (dog)

    That's Boyer and his new friend.

    [IMG][/IMG]
    I have always felt like I may have been born in the wrong era. This is what California surf camping is all about right here...white walls and white squalls!

    [IMG][/IMG]
    That is me clocking Boyer in the arm for sleeping in so late. Statue is the Surf Kook in SD.

    Monica and I

    I am just nutty about wagons with boards on top. This old Volvo has plenty of miles left. Encinatas State Beach.

    After a 3-hour surf session and a jellyfish sting, a cup of black coffee was all I needed.

    [IMG][/IMG]
    First thing I see when I get to the park...I am pretty sure this is that Captain Hook guy - anybody care to verify?

    [IMG][/IMG]
    Just in time!

    My second favorite of all the mountains.

    Themeing of the year award goes to HTH.

    [IMG][/IMG]
    Aww sheesh, there they are! I didn't take photos or videos of the show because I wanted to take it all in. And in it all I took!

    [IMG][/IMG]
    Can you guess where in the parks this was taken?

    [IMG][/IMG]
    Sometimes it seems as though Orange County should be renamed...

    Some car we found to take a picture with

    "It's my BEST Birthday!"

    [IMG][/IMG]
    Our tent was about the same size as that suite

    Emperor Zurg was behind them in a motorized cart

    The magic hour...

    Part 2 coming next!
    Ah, how strange! The molecules are so active now!

    I just have a thing for these signs!

    [IMG][/IMG]
    There are rumors floating around various Disney fan sites regarding this skull. Some say it is a well-done replica, others suggest it belonged to Injun Joe.

    [IMG][/IMG]
    The thundering mountain clearly provides the best ride in the very back seat. My amateur status buddy forgot to request the back seat and we ended up mid-train.

    [IMG][/IMG]
    The deserts a dry place...and full of some pretty mean varmints!

    [IMG][/IMG]
    Caesar's Palace, or the Haunted Mansion?

    [IMG][/IMG]
    So guy get's in line for the splashing mountain, "hey, where can I get a poncho?" A friendly, knowledgeable guest points out they are available for purchase near the exit. Guy leaves, then cuts back in with the poncho on, but has removed his shirt underneath. It was gross.

    [IMG][/IMG]
    Boyer has been spending some extra time in the gym

    [IMG][/IMG]
    Wooooosh!

    Nobody behind us because they were getting ready for the Electrical Parade

    [IMG][/IMG]
    The only thing that could make this photo better would be to see some beautiful pastel buckets passing in and out of the mountain.

    [IMG][/IMG]
    Another one...I just couldn't get over how cool this area is!

    [IMG][/IMG]
    There is always someone in the crew that just must go on the Teacups!

    [IMG][/IMG]
    I have been riding this thing since legal age and am still scared! Sometimes rides change, experiences are different, paint chips, handrails get polished...but Space Mountain is better every time!

    [IMG][/IMG]
    Our hotel. The best part about it was the overnight shoe shining services.

    Find a better quote than this that doesn't involve Sir Charles Norris or Jack Bauer, I dare ya!

    A rare glimpse of my Johnny Rice custom and Alex waiting around in the line up...glass, for now.

    I pulled this lobster out of some seaweed that washed up and posted it up next to my cuu Mark. They are now best friends.

    Boyer and I goonin' it up at the Giants v. Dodgers game.

    Thanks for checking it out - it was a fun, but way too short of a visit to the Happiest Place on Earth!

        Thanks for another incredible report. Always love the pics...even if it is the dodgers and not the Angels. Are you running this Labor day?
        Glory, Glory Man United! And the Reds go marching on! On!! ON!!!

        I survived my first Marathon. Got my Mickey at WDW after 6:22:08 of "fun" on the course. Not happy with the time, so I will go back and be getting Goofy next year!

                Some great pics, so far! thanks!

                Looks like you caught a "Flash Mt" picture, just as they were coming down. But it looks like a guy, not a gal.

                  Thanks, friends! It was nearly criminal being in the park for only half a day...but we did our best! But getting in an AM surf and then not long after, careening through the galaxy...not a bad day!

                  Renthead - haven't seen you on here in a while; I have been a bit of a clam myself. How's the running going? I am getting ready for the San Francisco half marathon at the end of this month, hoping to get in under 1:30 but this course has a couple hills! I am getting married in October, so I will be running around Las Vegas with a lampshade on my head Labor Day Weekend this year at my bachelor party. While I am looking forward to this right of passage immensely, it will be sad missing the race. What a great course! But next year we are going big and getting as much MC participation as possible - deal?

                  Take it easy!

                      Would any of you happen to know what happened to the portrait of the female pirate once in the queue of Pirates of the Caribbean? I know she won some kind of contest during the 50ears thing to get there in the first place...I thought she was immortalized. I didn't realize that would blot it out later on - but didn't notice it on my last visit.

                        Excellent report. I hope you got some good waves at Pipes/Swipes/Swami's. Didn't see any in your report. I remember getting some perfect A-Frame tubes there one afternoon at Swipes, hardly anyone else out, with a couple of friends, in the summer of 1970, back when we listened to 8-track tapes of Jethro Tull in VW vans with surfboards on top.

                        I enjoyed your Disneyland and California Adventure photographs, your eye for detail, your quirky captions and questions and observations. I can't wait to get back to Disneyland.

                            That portrait of the contest winner was supposed to be there for a certain amount of time. I guess it was overdue to be removed.

                              Looks like you ran out of bandwidth. That's going to happen to me soon, need to upgrade to Pro.
