IHOP and WalMart…

We decided we wanted breakfast this morning so about 10 am we drove over to the IHOP in Lancaster about 3 miles away. The place was busy, but we only had to wait about 15 minutes so it wasn’t too bad.

But before we left the park we stopped by the office to pay for the next four days, thinking we would leave on Thursday. However as usual, our plans are written in Jell-O, because after talking at breakfast we decided we’ll stay an extra 3 days which will be a full 2nd week here. We’ll see.

One thing we’ve noticed out here in CA is that most restaurant menus have the calorie count on them. And it’s interesting to see that things aren’t always what they seem. For instance, a Garden Omelet has about 1050 calories, but a Belgian waffle with two eggs and two strips of bacon has only about 790 calories. Who knew?

After breakfast we went by WalMart and stocked up on ‘stuff’. Funny how we never seem to have enough ‘stuff’.

Leaving WalMart, we stopped off at the Sam’s Club gas station next door, since it was 27 cents a gallon cheaper than we had paid in LA.

Then it was home for the day.

Later in the afternoon  I put up our solar shades to help keep the coach cool, since without any shade here, the AC was really working to keep us cool.

Tomorrow we’re going back into LA to visit the La Brea Tar Pits and then drive around some more.

More then…
