Such a great time!


California was a blast. Spent 2 and a half weeks cruising slowly up the coast. Starting with a confrence in San Dieago which was very good... it's nice to be with a bunch of people that I don't have to really explain what I do for a living! When it was over I went to the zoo. If you have a chance to go to the San Diago Zoo you should!

Next two stops were hosted by folks in the Mennonite Your Way book... didn't know them when I stopped in, but we hand exchanged emails, and I felt welcomed...

First stop in Annaheim, where I actually spent most of my time in LA and further west, but I didn't really know where I wanted to visit when I set up who I was staying with... in this area I would really suggest seeing the Ghetty Art museum, but if that's not your thing... the La Brea tar pits were cool too!!!

Second MYW family was from Paso Robles... and the mother of the family had done a prayer walk from Western Washington state diagonally to the Florida Keys (WOW) here I went 3 times into the town of Cambria needless to say I loved this artistic community, and the town of Harmony that was right beside it. William Randolph Herst's castle is near by, and it is interesting too.

Next stop? Friends that I had traveled with before, so I felt oh so comfortable. Rich took me around to several interesting spots all dealing with either education or the arts. Lovely to spend time with this family including his mother, sister and her sons, and his brother also ... all came around for mother's day!

And the last stop San Francisco to stay with my gradeschool/highschool best friend! There saw several museums, and the art school in Oakland where I'm thinking I should contact atleast to see if I could begin thinking of applying for grad school.

The trip was great! Loved it!

Came home late Saturday night. Drove up to see my parents on Sunday... they had been traveling in Oregon as I was traveling in CA. And they think they have found a house they are interested in buying for a retirement home. And in about a month want to go back out... and close on it... if the deal is accepted... in which case they've asked me to go back out there with them to help in getting the house ready. COOL hee hee

We will see...
