Chef Luigi back to blog about latest trip. When Chef Luigi arrive to
California, I wonder where LB take me. I happy to stay at LB's house
but LB say he have special trip planned. Friday he say he had it down
to beach or Disneyland, but he said beach because he say you cannot
visit California and not visit beach. He say "Unless you visit Blythe,
that is." (Pssst: I never hear of Blythe but I smile at joke)
LB say he sad entire family cannot take Chef Luigi to beach because
Mrs. LB have work and other girl, Yvie, have school. So LB, Kennedy and
Chef Luigi go play.
This is the place we visited:
Chef Luigi like Newport Beach, but wonder where Oldport went
We go to Newport Beach. LB say Newport is "a straight shot down the 55
for us" so I say yes but wonder what that mean. We driving for not very
long, 45 minutes, and then we at beach. Weather warm but not hot, but
beach still beautiful.
Waves stayed far away from Chef Luigi
I didn't want to swim. Kennedy very brave girl. She four years old and not
scared of water. Chef Luigi try to get toes in water and Kennedy try to
convince me of getting in water. She say "Come on, Chef guy" because
that what she call Chef Luigi.
I stay here, not go in water
LB say the water is Pacific Ocean, and he say my last stop in New
Zealand also surrounded by Pacific Ocean. I think I see it in Dunedin.
I start to miss Good EatNZ and Chef Gino.
New Zealand very far away, but out there somewhere
Then I think I see something to make Chef Luigi's famous calimari with.
This is not calimari!
LB laugh and say this is seaweed. Yuk. I cover in seaweed.
We stop playing in water even though Kennedy could have stayed longer.
But after more than 90 minutes we want to go to pier so Kennedy say
okay. We walk by crab house. LB say he does not like seafood so smell
was not good to him, but Chef Luigi love smell.
I hungry for lobster!
Then Chef Luigi see sign, love sign, take picture next to sign.
We finally get on pier and it is very beautiful. Sun shining bright and
warm now, but still refreshing because we are next to beautiful Pacific
Sign say this place is old. Where is new port?Then Chef Luigi distracted. Camera not take best picture of Chef Luigi. Can you tell why?
LB say turn around, and I tell him "I am!"
But that not only sights we see.
Chef Luigi never see seal beforeIt was first time I see animal like that. Very beautiful! I lucky to see because LB say he never see one out in wild before.
We prepare to drive to LB's home soon after. We had great day at Newport Beach.
Chef Luigi love Newport Beach!
It's great day to spend with LB and Kennedy! We all very happy!
Chef Luigi like hosts!
All in all, memorable day at beach.
