We walked on the pier at Newport Beach and met some fishermen, then we relaxed in the outdoors hot tub last night and slept in until about 9 this morning. We are all enjoying some Corner Bakery this morning and catching up on our Internet and social media. Today we are going to Hollywood and Beverly Hills! Hopefully we meet some famous people today! Tonight we are going to our hosts’ houses in Ontario and playing at Crosspoint CRC tomorrow morning for their 8:30 and 10:30 services. Thanks for following our blog everyone!
Here is a picture of our drive to Phoenix.
10:40 pm -- Greetings friends!
Today we were blessed with a day off! It was so nice to be able to sleep in (until 7:45, woo hoo!) and relax. We made it safely to Ontario, California, yesterday evening and met up with Ethan Ver Velde, one of Trinity’s admissions counselors. This afternoon we had lunch in Hollywood and saw Johnny Depp, Brad Pitt, and Jennifer Anniston. Just kidding! We only saw Johnny Depp. :) After walking around on Hollywood Blvd. for a bit, we got back in the TrinVan, and Ethan raced us around Beverly Hills. We made it all the way to the top and took some breathtaking pictures of the houses there. It was quite an adventure! We saw some pretty sweet cars, and people-watching was fun to say the least. We ended the day with a delicious dinner at Macaroni Grill and met up with our host families. There have been so many hilarious quotes I can’t even remember them all, but we have definitely been laughing a lot! It’s been a wonderful time traveling so far, and I’m really looking forward to singing more praises to our wonderful Savior tomorrow!
