West Coast Spring 2018 – Los Angeles

June 11 – 13 Our three nights in Los Angeles would follow a familiar pattern, visiting old haunts, seeing good friends, maybe a bike ride or two and best of all, an obligatory dinner at Paco’s.  And that is pretty much how it went, a lot of it old news to those who follow this […]

West Coast Spring 2018 – Santa Fe, Part One

May 29 – June 1 With a seven-hour drive ahead of us we got on the road early, walking out the door with Bev as she left for work.  We’d be splitting the 11-hour drive to Santa Fe into two stages, doing the lion’s share today with an overnight in Dalhart, Texas giving us a […]

West Coast Spring 2017, Part Two
