|We left San Carlos on June 25th.|
The first stop was Tucson where the highlight this time
was the Pima County Air and Flight Museum.
It was way too hot to do any outdoor activities!
|Tom Cruise's jet in Top Gun.|
|The beginning of Northwest Airlines|
Next stop was a pre-arranged condo in Palm Springs. It was way too hot
to do anything outside, but it was a good place to "re-group",
and close enough for Drew to come for a couple of visits
and for us to go visit Drew
|The hottest day...........|
|We DID have a successful hat shopping day.|
This is the new American Apparel Distribution Center
that has been Drew's project for the last two years.
It's pretty amazing considering it started with a big empty warehouse.
Next stop was Santa Cruz for Joel (Jim's college roommate)
and Judy's retirement party.
|The morning after.............|
Then a lunch stop in Half Moon Bay on our way to San Francisco.
We spent three nights with Jim's brother, Dave, in San Francisco.
One day we did a little hiking in The Presidio:
We also did a hike in Glenn Canyon Park behind Dave's house
and Chrissy's friends John and Bethie came to visit us there.
Then on to Eugene to visit Chrissy's sister, Gretchen.
|Gretchen has a glass studio and she helped us make|
a new tile for the front of our diesel stove.
|Gretchen has a sweet new dog named Toolah.|
|This is our tile before it was put in the kiln. We left before it was done|
so we haven't seen the finished product yet.
We arrived home on July 12th.
