May 31, 2017 - Tucson to San Diego

Today we were going to drive the 420 miles to San Diego. This turned out to be one of the most interesting drives we have had. The first part of the drive is across the desert that surrounds Tucson. There are some large sand dunes just off the road and not much vegetation at all. Very little water. Not sure how anyone would make a living out here, but if you didn't want neighbors around this would be the place. Though we did see some for sale signs along the road. We also saw some large stands of cactus plants. Many in fanciful shapes. As...

May 24, 2017 - Home again

We arrived safely today, tired, but I'm glad to be back in my San Diego home finally. It took us a few days of 'reality checks' before letting go of Sunny, cleaning her up, and agreeing on a reasonable price. We put it on the market and the next day the dealer, whom we purchased it from, came by, took a look, did some calculations, and purchased it at our asking price, almost. Bittersweet, lump in my throat, that dream is over. Now Gail is on her way back to Portland in the Honda, the towing vehicle which we kept. She is taking a few extra...

Apr 30, 2017 - San Diego Old Town

Kevin had to do some work at home today so Erica, Peter and I set off to visit the San Diego Old Town. This is the area where the original town was built before re-locating to the new town, closer to the water. The city or county maintain the buildings, some of which are shops and others museums. It was a great way to learn more of the history of the area. I don't know enough American history to know much about the settlement of this part of the west coast so it was good to learn what we did. This area was settled originally by native...

Apr 29, 2017 - San Diego - Balboa Park

Woke to a beautiful day. The weather has been great while we've been here....needed my wind-cheater part of the day at the Grand Canyon and odd mornings/evenings however, otherwise it's been perfect. I had a light breakfast before we set off with Erica and Kevin to visit Balboa Park, a 1200 acre park in central San Diego. It was great sitting back in the car enjoying the scenery while we flew along the freeway. Kevin has the driving well in hand. As we got closer to San Diego city (Erica and Kevin live in a beach suburb north of the city),...

Apr 28, 2017 - Palm Springs to San Diego

We enjoyed a lazy morning today. Wandered over to Rick's Diner, the restaurant on the hotel complex (Day's Inn), and enjoyed a delicious breakfast. I had the petite breakfast - a fried egg over medium (I know the American term for how I like a fried egg), bacon strip, hash brown (it was like a giant potato cake and delicious) and two slices of toast and jam and Pete's eyes nearly fell out of his head with the amount of food that came out on his plate - 3 egg omelette with mushroom and cheese, two huge hash browns and toast and jam. Having...

Mar 31, 2017 - We're off...almost

On Monday, April 3rd We're taking off for a three-month tour of the USA and Canada. You're invited to come along with us--in cyberspace at least. You'll avoid the tornadoes in Texas, bridges collapsing in Atlanta, and who knows what in D.C. On second thought, maybe we should just stay home and enjoy beautiful weather and great neighbors in San Diego. Oh well, I call this my Farewell Tour because after dashing through the Midwest, lingering at Hot Springs, AR, demonstrating in D.C. and seeing a musical in New York, as well as exploring...

Feb 8, 2017 - At Sea and And Disembarking at San Diego

Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday Feb. 7 & 8 & 9 2017. At Sea and And Disembarking at San Diego The trip from Mexico back to the USA took two days on the open ocean about 30 miles west of the nearest land. So, what do you do when at sea - on a cruise ship? Eat of course. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner with snacks thrown in for good measure! And there is entertainment. The Quest Singers and Dancers put on an intriguing show that had been written especially for Azamara Club Cruises called “Voices.” The music that normally is provided by the...

Jan 1, 2017 - Balboa Park a second look

On New Years Day we returned to Balboa Park to actually visit some of the exhibits. We bought the explorer pass which entitled us to go into 5 museums (we only made it into 3 --guess we should have gotten an earlier start, lol): Air Space, Museum of Man and the Science Center. Also, we listened to a recital on the world's largest outdoor organ (pretty loud but not the best fidelity)

Dec 29, 2016 - California Dreaming

Well here we are again away from home. We weren't going to do a blog but it seemed like a good way to say Happy New Year Everyone. We left a snowy Nanaimo on Dec 15th to head south looking for sunshine. We just missed an ice storm in Oregon and got through safely. We stopped in Sonoma, wine country, and Santa Barbara for 2 days each on the way down. After 2500km we arrived weary but well into San Diego on the 22nd. We are in San Diego until January 1st then we head up to Palm Springs for the 10 day film festival before heading home at the...

Dec 27, 2016 - The Holiday Bowl

slept in after a long day of travelling. Then headed to Quallcomm stadium to watch the Holiday Bowl featuring my Minnesota Golden Gophers versus the Cougars from Washington State University. Kind of a snooze during the first half, but things looked up in the 2nd as the UM won 17-12.

Dec 18, 2016 - Merry Christmas

Christmas is a week away and the new year is just two weeks away. That means I need to start practicing writing 2017 instead of 2016. I know we are all saying, where did the year go. It was a year of changes for a lot of us. For us it meant retirement, celebrating 50 years of marriage, leaving early for our RV odyssey, Boise in the summer (it’s HOT), Washington and Oregon in the Fall (it’s RAINY), plus enjoying familiar places and faces. We have stayed fairly healthy but are feeling the impact of getting older - bad knees, bad eyes, achy...

Nov 11, 2016 - San Diego, CA Nov 6-10, 2016

We arrived in San Diego on Sunday. Our home was Admiral Baker Golf Club and RV Resort. It is a US Navy recreation site and near a trolley stop. On Monday we hooked up with our old friend Pastor Kate. We were able to go over to her house and meet her new dog, Koi. She lives in La Mesa – which was close – and in a mixed use neighborhood – so she can live locally. We went to breakfast with her (walked to a local favorite) and then she took us on a trip to her church. Then it was off to Point Loma to see the view of San Diego from there. At the...
