    Dawn over the Pacific

    May 17, 2017, Coral Sea ⋅ ☀️ 12 °C

    Had a pretty good flight and some reasonable sleep. Woke for breakfast around 5:00am and snapped a couple of sunrise shots over the port wing.
    Has been a quick trip but so grateful to have been able to attend Bec's graduation ceremonies. So very proud of this girl.

    Arrived LAX Emirates Lounge

    May 15, 2017 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 13 °C

    Our final rest stop before that tedious Pacific flight across to Brisbane. 14 hours here we come. The changes to the LAX terminals are brilliant, internal passageways from one terminal to another and still in transit mode so no further security passes.

    Orange County Choppers

    May 15, 2017 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 15 °C

    Just had to do a slight detour to this place in Orange County . Came here a few years back, but now they have the OCC cafe, bowling lanes and bar. Pretty cool spot.
    Still snapped some of the incredibly amazing bikes again. Of course Paul Snr came out to meet us and got a tour through the workshop. The blue soft tail is his girlfriends bike and some of their current builds are a blast. Everybody keep an eye out for the new Orange County Choppers show already in the making.Read more

    Mum's together

    May 13, 2017 in the United States ⋅ 🌫 15 °C

    Kicked off the day with breakfast at Peaberry's where Bonnie met us for coffee.
    After brekky we headed out to the Oliver's place, I then went off with Tom to golf at Firestone, and Sue spent the day with Bonnie and Bec at home.
    Had a great day at golf with a birdie on the 1st, a 210m drive straight down the middle, 6 iron into centre green 6ft from the pin, and centre cup putt. Nice start to the round.
    After golf was back to the Oliver's for dinner and an evening of screw your neighbour, a fun card game.

    Home of the Warner Bros

    May 12, 2017 in the United States ⋅ ☁️ 13 °C

    Youngstown is famous for many unknown things, such as where did the Warner Brothers originate.
    These shots show the original theatre they had before going into movie production, and well, the rest we all know about. After a great link with Shannon & Bec we did some shopping at J C Penney for some new training gear for when I get back home.
    Finished the day off at the Pour House Bar in Poland and then home to Brad's where he prepared USA traditional Yankee Sloppy Joe's for dinner.
