We had our plan all in place, we would get up early, go for a run along the beach, have a couple of egg burritos, and head to LAX for our flight home. Here’s what actually happen, we got up early, started looking for flights home (we fly standby so there is a lot of guessing when flying), and after two hours we gave up. Since there was no plane on Sunday maybe one come Monday we packed our bags and rolled our suitcases 1.5 miles down the beach, and checked into the Cadillac Hotel.
The hotel is old and classy, much like an old Cadillac that you may see, it looks good, but it may be missing a tire or two. We dropped our stuff off in the room and headed to the beach, because you need to make the best of a bad situation – that’s all you can really do – and we enjoyed the sun and the surf while watching the Brown Pelicans diving for fish.
Hopefully the flights will be open today and we will head back to St. Louis, but if not, this is not a bad place to be stranded. ~Jimmy
