San Juan - 2005

We accepted an invite from friends to share a condo on the ocean with them for a week in California. The highlight was a visit to the Mission San Juan Capistrano where we did not see the birds!

Chili Festival - 2006

Oh Boy, did we have fun. An RV trip that was suppose to include Pat and Mike & Carol Wheelocks but Pat and Deb couldn't make it at the last minute. We were pleasantly surprised when Craig and Pam joined us. A highlight of the trip was being able to park right on the beach.

One of our favorite activities is to attend the Toronto International Film Festival with our good friends the Wheelock’s. This is a compilation of two visits; 2011 an 2014.

San Diego 2013
My Image

Went to become acquainted with the city and to visit my old childhood friend Dennis Fletscher. We went whale watching - saw a tail fin about 2 hundred yards away but the boat ride was nice, especially to see the city from the water. Dennis and his wife Sue took us on a really nice tour of the city with emphasis on the navel facilities - Dennis is retired navy.

St Petersburg 2014
My Image

We took the opportunity while visiting the Huffman’s, who live near The Villages, to spend a night with our friends Pat and Debra in St Petersburg. There are not enough photos to do our visit justice and we also lack a photo of Pat who was our principle photographer.
