The Holidays 2019, Part One

December 20 – January 7 The lead up to our trip to the west coast for the holidays would be convoluted; we’d end up changing our flights twice, incurring painful re-booking costs, all ultimately worthwhile as it gave us extra days with folks we like.  The last change bumped up our departure to the Thursday […]
