While we were gone, I didn't have good internet access so I could only post via Facebook. Will be trying to put up a few photos once I upload them onto the computer. There is always lots to do when you are gone for more than 3 weeks.
Most noticeably was the change in the weather once we returned. In California temps were in the mid to high 80's (30C plus) most of the time. We saw it in California that the weather was changing, but there is nothing like true fall weather in the pacific northwest. It's also so different to walk into your own home again, noticing the familiar smells that you don't notice daily.
Can't wait to post a few photos from our big travels. Here's a quick summary. We started out with a flight from Victoria to SFO, then stayed in San Jose for a week before heading off to Bakersfield. From there we drove to Huntington Beach to visit friends and family. From there we went onto San Diego for a quick look around. It had been over 15 years for me and roughly 35 for my mom. It's amazing how much a town grows up! Then we headed back up to home base and had a few days left before leaving again..
Here are a few quick photos from one of our outings on Sept 12th. That was so much fun to do!
