Minature Golf in Sunnyvale

I'm starting the third day of my trip to California, and so far, I'm having a good time.

I got a rare upgrade on the flight out to San Jose; usually, there are so many frequent fliers with more seniority that first class fills up on the AA MD-80, but Sunday morning isn't quite as popular.

I got to the hotel Sunday afternoon, took a little nap, and then headed across the street to the Playland Golf and Arcade complex. 36 holes of mini-golf goodness, organized into the "castle" zone and the "tiki" zone. I'd not played any sort of golf since college, but I had a good time. My putting is attrocious, but I seem to have good timing for hitting balls through opening and closing doorways.

It was cold out there, and after 90 minutes of play, I was pretty chilled. I only had one mishap; a little kid was running ahead of his parents, and jumped ahead of me to play a hole I was waiting on. The kid had a lot of enthusiasm, so actually didn't take long to hit the ball, go run after it, pick it up, and throw it at the hole.

hehhe...that little boy has figured out the secret to golf! Don't know how many times I wanted to do that when I was having regular golf lessons.
