Just 15.2 miles south of Downey is the theme park of Disneyland. It is Disneyland's 60th birthday this year, so my wife and I bought annual passes. Whenever I go, I am amazed at the number of people that are there. We were sitting at a sidewalk cafe for dinner as I gazed out at the flow of humanity just in front of me. So many families. So many strollers. So many princesses on their daddy's shoulders.
But we had a great time riding the "Soaring over California" and "Pirates of the Caribbean" rides. We had decided not to stay for the fireworks show in order to beat that crowd to the exit gates, and heard as we were near the exit that the show had been canceled due to high winds. Good choice. I made home in plenty of time to give my wife a foot rub before doing this Downey Daily Photos submission. Another good choice.
