Santa Monica is the official end/beginning of Route 66. It should have taken about four hours to get to Santa Monica. . . . Unfortunately, I took a route that went northwest instead of southwest!
Then, because I wanted to enter Santa Monica legitimately from Route 66, I drove east to Glendora to pick up Foothill Blvd. and take Route 2 (66) all the way to the coast. If I hadn’t gotten lost, I would have arrived in Santa Monica at around 4:00 p.m., but instead arrived at 7:30! That’s okay. I got to drive by our old house in Tujunga, which if I had gone the right way, I wouldn’t have seen it. I plan to bum around Tujunga (where the house filmed in E.T. resides) a bit.
I have tickets to the Chelsea Handler show this week. I’ll also do some other site-seeing while I’m here. I should be back to Erie by the end of September! No new pictures today. I was too busy getting lost!
Here’s a gallery of photos from the trip.
