I dropped off the two at Disneyland since I have been there previously, and have no plans of spending extra money there, or playing gooseberry. It was a nice me-day. I drove to one of the many surf beaches in California – Manhattan Beach. Although I planned to go surfing initially, the cold water and the lack of surfboard rental facilities nearby made me change my mind. After feeling how cold it was, I simply chickened out. There were, however, two other guys with wet suits, who were out there and doing their thing. I do enjoy watching people surfing, even if I am not doing it myself.

The trip to Manhattan Beach wasn’t wasted for me either. I sat on the beach and basically did some of my reading amidst all the seagulls, volleyball players, and the few random children who decided to go run wild on the beach on this rather chilly day. After my one hour of sunshine, I drove to a cafe and hung out there it was time for me to pick the two up at Disneyland at 7 pm.

We went to the Korean supermart near where we were staying at Howard Johnson Inn at Torrance, and had some excellent and cheap sushi rolls (~$4), thus ending our day.
