Hi all 😃 My entry for this week’s challenge, set by John of Journeys With Johnbo: Flights of Fancy.
My wife, Susan, grew up on re-runs of American 80s shows set around Santa Monica, Malibu & LA. This lead to dreams of visiting those places on holiday. Our first trip to the US together was to Houston, to A buffy the Vampire convention (yep, we’re nerds 🤓). After that, whilst still in the Navy, we made it across to Santa Monica & Malibu a few times. Susan has always been a huge fan of Ford Mustangs & we were able to rent them on our holidays.

We were able to visit many places, including the La Brea Tar Pits, Peterson Motor Museum & the Observatory, to mention a few.
When I retired from the Navy in 2009, we booked a house below the Serra Hills in Malibu for a month, rented a Mustang & had a fantasic time travelling aound the local area. We often avoided the busy freeways & took surface streets; this allowed us to see so much more of the LA coastal area.
