West Coast Spring 2018 – Yosemite, Part One

June 18 – 20 After leaving San Luis Obispo and our hearty lunch, we made good time into Oakland and caught a break with the traffic.  With luck on our side we found a spot on the street close to the apartment where we could park for the two hours needed to get us to […]

West Coast Spring 2018 – Morro Bay, Part Two

June 18 – 20 The next morning after spending some time in camp we set out for our days activities.  First up was the short drive into Morro Bay where we introduced Kim and Marty to the Sun-N-Buns Bakery where we enjoyed a romp through their pastry selection. From there it was out to Montana […]

West Coast Spring 2018 – Morro Bay, Part One

West Coast Spring 2018 – Solana Beach

June 7 – 10 With a full day ahead of us and a four hour plus drive to Solana Beach, we took off mid-morning (along with Sharon and Doug) to miss most of the Las Vegas rush hour traffic.  It was an easy drive, stopping for our first visit of the trip at the In-N-Out […]
