Day 21 - Final day in the USA

View from our hotel - Monterey
 Last day today. Woke in our beautiful room in Monteray. Leisurely breakfast brought to our room. Closed the case for the last time, didn't quite have to sit on it!!!. Packed the car and headed south. We had originally planned to take the coast road all the way down, but there was a big landslip a few days ago and a large part of the coast road is closed.
Called into Santa Barbara for a late lunch, another lovely city with a very Spanish influence.

Malibu - homes on the beach
 Kept driving south, went through Malibu and saw some awesome homes right on the beach - just like in two and a half men!!
Wanted to find a shop to bug a luggage strap for my case as the zipper was looking a bit "stressed". Almost went into LA before we found a Macey's which had them on special!
Time to go to the airport, dropped the car back, hopped on the shuttle, checked in very quickly, straight through security ........ And now sitting waiting and chatting as we are delayed for 2 hours.
Wonderful wonderful holiday, thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it - as Arnie once said - "we will be back".
See you all back in Oz ;-)
