Last weekend we stayed on a boat, for our 15th anniversary. I happen to have a little phobia about tsunamis/rogue waves...I think I may have watched too many Discovery Channel specials on them. Anyway, so a good option for us was staying on the Queen Mary, which happens to be docked in a harbor. Pretending to be on a cruise, without being in the open ocean :)
The boat is really neat because there is so much history in it. You almost feel like you've stepped back in time, seeing all the old pictures, & some of the old furnishings. We went out & explored the downtown Long Beach area in the day. Found a few cool shops & bars. We also got a good 6 1/2 mile run on the path beside the beach. So much fun, grateful to have had these last 15 years. They went fast!
