Shellie May, Tiny Shellie May, and Popcone

I brought a bag for my leftover Popcone (dill pickle flavor popcorn) from Cars Land.

"It reminds us of Japan!" said my bears who came from Japan.

"A very little," clarified Tiny Shellie May.

Road Trip with Duffy

This was the view along much of our trip. You could make out parts of Route 66 sometimes (I think).


It definitely reminded me of Cars!

Goodbye to the Grand Californian

So we're finally leaving the Grand Californian! SNIFF

But we had one more day of vacation, so yeah, let's follow along!

We took the northernmost route from Anaheim to Prescott, Arizona, near Route 66. We saw a billboard for Dairy Queen and finally got there!

On our way out of the Grand Californian

I know it's crooked, but this is so pretty!

Double-chocolate breakfast at White Water Snacks!

This was our Halloween candy bag. I got rid of mine (trying to overcome my packrat tendencies) but after seeing what a great movie Wreck-It Ralph was, I wished I'd kept it! Oh well.

Goodbye from the Grand Californian!

Looking up at our room.

Outside our room at the Grand Californian

"See? Our room is right up there! On the right side!"

Shellie May might learn to be a good tour guide someday.

Shellie May near the pool at the Grand Californian

"What a pretty hotel!" said Shellie May. "Do you think we could ever stay here again, please? PLEASE?"

"I don't know," I said. "But maybe."

Duffy's Spring-ish Voyage: Part 28

STILL on board the then-101-year-old Great Lakes Freighter the James M. Schoonmaker!

You could tell it was definitely a work in progress....this roof was rusted through!

Tiny Duffy is looking tiny!

"What a pretty city!" said Tiny Duffy. "Can we visit it someday?"


"Oh! What's in here?" asked Tiny Duffy.

Just boxes. :)

"Helloooo world!"

Look at these old outlets!

Hm. Good advice!

Greenery at Disney's Grand Californian

"The Grand Californian is very photogenic," said Shellie May.

"Not nearly as photogenic as you!"

"Awww!" Shelie May grinned at me.

Shellie May at Downtown Disney

So we went out to go to World of Disney because we hadn't had enough shopping yet.

"Hey," said Shellie May. "Can we go to Cars Land again?"

"Not today, but someday. I promise."

Shellie May in the Grand Californian lobby

"This chair must be made for giants!" said Shellie May.

Actually, I felt that way in the chair too.

Doesn't help that the lobby is the most gigantic room ever.

Am I too small to visit Pinocchio's Workshop?

I am not sure Shellie May would have gotten so cuddly with Pinocchio if she had seen that horrible movie.  Poor donkey boys. :(

Shellie May is not phoning a friend

"Would you like to make a phone call, Shellie May?"

"I'd rather sit here looking cute," she said. "Also, my BHFF is right here, so I don't need to."

"Your BHFF?"

"Best Human Friend Forever."


This was the floor of the elevator in our section at the Grand Californian...we saw it many times. Pretty!

Shellie May is not afraid of heights

"Be careful, Shellie May!"

She is not afraid of heights, but I am.

It was a lot of fun to watch California Adventure "wake up." We could even kind of hear the opening spiel play (couldn't make out all the words, but it was neat).

I stayed until I saw a guest actually walk toward Paradise Pier, which was a few minutes after the park opened...everyone was busy going to Cars Land!

Golden Zephyr, just looking cool.
