After a three and a half hour delay at Manchester causing us to miss our connection in Atlanta we finally arrived in Los Angeles and managed to meet up with Sharon. However our luggage didn't make it but luckily it arrived at Santa Barbara airport next morning.
We have three months now to catch up on some family time and look forward to the birth of our first grandchild in July.
On Saturday we watched the summer Solstace parade in Santa Barbara and have spent the rest of our time so far dining out overlooking the harbour, chilling out on one of the many beaches and swimming in the beautiful pool at Sharon's inlaw's Condo complex.
Watch this space for news of the new baby's arrival!
