We left Moab around 7am and were home 10:45, despite the roadworks in Monticello - why they have to dig up the whole town at once beats me! We picked up the mail, unloaded the car, got a few things sorted and went to Pagosa and picked up the m... Read more

It's been a fun 2 weeks... the coast was wonderful, the redwoods amazing and Las Vegas is like a Disney World for grown ups. All in all we've had a wonderful time, still it will be good to be back home and into a routine again. We've had a lot o... Read more

Last night we went to see "Phantom of the Opera". It was amazing!! The special effects were great and didn't distract from the show but rather enhanced it. However we were glad we didn't sit further forward under the chandelier... We'd missed ... Read more

We left Oxnard at 7:30 this morning in the mist and cool air. We arrived in Vegas around 2pm and it was 109F at one point - what a difference. After a week or so of cool temps this felt nice. We checked into the Venetian and the room is gorge... Read more

We drove over the Golden Gate Bridge in a fog, down to Santa Cruz where there was a lot of smoke in the air from the fires. The smoke didn't clear out till we got to Carmel/Carmel-by-the-sea. That place was like noting else I've ever seen! Expen... Read more

We had a wonderful drive down the coast and stopped for lunch in Mendocino. What a lovely little town. I could have spent hours browsing around the historical buildings and the little shops. Highway 1 was very curvy and DH did get the odd gli... Read more

We were sad to say goodbye to Bandon, OR - our favorite place so far. We stopped at Cape Blanco and had a tour of the lighthouse. It's most western point of the US apparently :) We drove south and had a fishy lunch in Brookings-Harbor and walked... Read more

This is a beautiful area - my favorite part of Oregon so far. The beach is wonderful - we went for long walk this morning. The water is still cold but I did get my feet wet in the Pacific! We have a kitchenette here and it was great to fix o... Read more

We worked our way down the coast and are staying in Depoe Bay for a couple of days. We walked along the seafront yesterday and saw a whale! Amazing. The coast is beautiful around here and we sat and watched the waves for a while at Rocky Creek. ... Read more

This place is beautiful. Looking forward to touring the cheesefactory. Eating has been all over the place and it's hard to drink enough water when we're in the car most of the day. Now we're on the coast we'll take travelling slower and walk m... Read more

Had my yearly check-up this morning followed by a great lunch with DH and DD. DH and I then drove though Utah and are now north of Ogden. There's a big fire near SLC airport and the smoke in the air is like thick fog. We had a late dinner, too ... Read more

My friend passed away this morning after a 6 month struggle with cancer. She was only 50 and the nicest person you'd ever meet. We have been so sad about her but we're still going ahead with our trip - it's what she would have wanted. It cer... Read more

So yesterday I was happy not to have gained from the cookout. For lunch DH wanted a cheeseburger and fries, I resisted and had salad and some stinky chicken instead and was pretty careful the rest of the day - Hmm, I'm up half a pound this morni... Read more
