Hot Time At Disneyland

Sorry for the shortage of posts over the past week, but we went to Disneyland!! One day, we went on the Mark Twain Riverboat, and the next we were surprised to see that the Sailing Ship Columbia was out! It had been quite awhile since I had been on it, and even longer for my husband, so we enjoyed that.
They are in the process of test-running new Monorail cars, but we didn't get to see that. Maybe next time.
With my husband being a retired railroad man, naturally he loves the trains - we always get pictures of those!He got to see this newest engine, the Ward Kimball, for the first time. That made him happy!
What's that about the "Hot Time", you ask? Well - this is a direct quote from the newspaper (Los Angeles, Associated Press) "Anaheim was tied for the hottest spot in the contiguous United States at 102 degrees Sunday, according to the National Weather Service. The city's previous high for April 13 was 96 degrees in 1984." Um - that was the day we arrived. What's up with our luck? The day we arrived last October was the same day the horrible wildfires broke out last fall in So. Cal. The winds were awful, and there was literally ash and debris blowing around and getting in our eyes even with glasses and sunglasses on! Well, it did cool down a bit this trip on the following days. Whatever. We had fun anyway! I love my Happiest Place!!We saw at least three different , beautiful horses on the Horse-Drawn Streetcars, but only got pictures of these two. We were happy to see them out! Last fall, they were not because of the poor air quality.
I will have a bit more to say about Disneyland another day. Happy Disney Days!

I am so glad you got to go to Disneyland. I could have gone last Weds. if I had wanted to do it with a sprained/and or broken ankle and my mother-in-law. Somehow it didn't sound like fun right then. I am glad it cooled off for you. I am glad you are home, I missed your blog. Love T
