Day twelve - fifteen

Instead of heading up to Yosemite National Park from Death valley, we made a little detour, the opposite way, towards the Mexican border.

Junkyard / Old car museum

While driving along the border we noticed what looked like Junkyard, but it had a welcome sign so we obliged.

Turns out it was a car museum of sorts where they restored old cards from the 20's-70's, they had some really cool vehicles there. With not much else planned for the day we wandered around there for an hour or so.

After the Junkyard we made our way to San Diego, where the Pacific Ocean and the Mexican border meet.

We had a hotel downtown with a view of the aircraft carrier USS Midway. We booked the hotel on Priceline and it was waaay to fancy for two slipper and shorts wearing people.

We explored down-town San Diego, especially the bars..

It was the first (and last!) hangover I've ever had on a trip. That day we went to SeaWorld which was super busy, not great with a ringing headache.

SeaWorld

SeaWorld was pretty nice, we got a tip from an employee about which order to watch the various shows through the day, as they all reference eachother with jokes that only make sense in that order.

That evening we did not explore the bars of San Diego, but did some necessary laundry, which made for nice room decorations. Oh the glamour of road-tripping.
