Route 66 – part 15

We have left the bright lights of Las Vegas and heading for the last part of our journey to Los Angeles in California. The journey was a long painfully slow drive due to the Easter holiday traffic so we have been told. During the trip, we decided to stop of for something to eat at the legendary Peggy Sue’s. Peggy Sue’s is an original roadside Diner, built in 1954 with 9 counter stools and 3 booths. It is set in the shadow of the Calico Mountains and was built from railroad ties and mortar from the nearby Union Pacific Rail yard. Peggy has used her grandmothers recipes for the authentic 50’s food. The have even built their own Diner-saur park with sculptures of dinosaurs, water falls, fountains grass and trees to have a wonder through. The inside is dedicated to all sorts of movie and music memorabilia and is an essential stop of point, if only for the atmosphere.

We needed some fuel after our lunch, maybe this was going to be our last stop and we were filling up on average about $30 a time. Not bad at all considering how we get robbed by the UK government at up to 60% tax per litre. Sorry had to get that little dig in their considering the UK pays the highest tax amounts on fuel in the World.

We eventually arrived at Anaheim and caught a very nice sunset on the way in.
