|Peter and his wife Kathy are friends|
who cruise aboard their Cal 39, Citla in
Mexico, but retain their home base in San
Diego. Peter dropped by to say hello and
gave Frances and I vouchers he had for the
San Diego Zoo. Frances was clearly pleased.
Thanks again Peter!
“You want four tickets to Legoland?”
Turns out the guy had 5-day park passes that he couldn’t use due to a change in plans. He wasn’t selling them, just looking for another family who could use them. The tickets were activated that day and they were valid for only the four following days.
Fortunately for us, our friends couldn’t use them, but accepted them on our behalf. The next day, the Robertsons packed a lunch and headed to Legoland. Like most things spontaneous, it was bound to turn out well. And especially because we had no vaulted expectations that couldn’t be met, there was no weighing the quality of the event against the price of admission; we had a fantastic time. And it was Mother’s Day.
That evening, towards the end of our meal at a nearby brewery, a family of four took a table near ours. I had the tickets in my pocket, two days remaining. They were excited to get them. I gathered they were planning a trip there the following day anyway and hadn’t already bought tickets.
|Cool, huh? It was pretty impressive to see what the artists at|
Legoland had done. These heads were each roughly three feet tall.
|This is the real Windy, not yet reproduced in Legos.|
We are all eager to pick her up at the airport
in a couple days.
