Cruising with Red Solo Cups…

This morning we did not want to wake up. After three days of more than 12 hours in the Disney parks we were just tired. We woke up late and at about 11:00 a.m. We left the hotel for some shopping. First destination: The Beverly Center.

The Beverly Center is a high-end shopping mall in Hollywood. After a 30-minute drive we arrived and parked the car in the parking garage. We visited a couple of stores like Michael Kors, Victoria’s Secret, Apple Store and Macy’s. we had something to drink and eat at Starbucks and bought the finale Starbucks City Mug of Los Angeles.

We left the Beverly Center and drove to the Citadel Outlets. Here it was very crowded because of the Columbus Day sale. We saved a lot of money while buying clothes at the Tommy Hilfiger Store. They had some amazing stuff almost for free.

After this is was time to drive to Newport Beach, because we were invited by Sully to join on a booze cruise. A booze cruise is the local name for cruising through the harbor on a Duffy boat. Typically there is always alcohol on board which is allowed since the Duffy’s are low-speed electrical boats.  Sully we met on Gina & Glenn’s wedding in March this year. We arrived here at about 15:30h and after the guys bought some drinks and snacks at the grocery store t was time to leave to the harbor with everything including our Red Solo Cups. Red Solo Cups are known by everyone in the USA who went to college, there is even a well-known song about the cups:

Red solo cup, I fill you up
Let’s have a party, let’s have a party
I love you red solo cup, I lift you up,
Proceed to party, proceed to party

Sully rented the Duffy for 2 hours from 6 till 8. Some other friends of Sully were joining us at the boat. Glenn offered to be the captain of the both and we all had a lot of fun and the 2 hours went by very quickly.



While we were driving back to the hotel we saw a little bit of the Disneyland Park fireworks from the Freeway. You just can not imagine that it is all so close.

After today, which was kind of a relaxing day, tomorrow we are going back to Disney with Gina & Glenn and visit Disney’s California Adventure.

  1. It was great spending time with our great friends. Thanks for letting us be a part of you vacation and for being a part of ours.

  2. Wij zaten in een hotel op loopafstand van het Beverly Center. Natuurlijk met Marjet hier naar toe geweest. De andere kant uit is Farmers Market. Ook echt de moeite waard om te bezoeken. Boottochtje zag er gezellig uit.

    1. Ja de farmersmarkt was erg leuk. Beverly Center vond ik tegenvallen, dan vind ik de Mall at Millenia in Orlando veel sfeervoller. Voor ons is het ongeveer een uurtje rijden vanuit het hotel.

  3. Goedemorgen! (voor straks alvast…). Leuk om ook een stukje traditie mee te krijgen. Staan de Hollywood Sign en de Walk of Fame nog op het programma! Veel Disney-plezier en -gezelligheid gewenst vandaag.

  4. Shop till you drop… Dat is niet moeilijk in deze omgeving hè. Citadel hebben wij deze keer niet bezocht, maar ziet er natuurlijk alleen vanaf de snelweg al machtig uit.
    Leuk bootje varen, theetje oh nee.. Drankje drinken.
