May 25, 2018 - Day of Departure

Friday, May 25...Day of Departure! A busy few hours of packing and tidying up the cabin. We had time for a few games of Farkle before loading up the car and returning the Bear Spray to the office.

Then back to the airport for our flight home and sleeping in our own beds with treasured memories of our week in glacier National Park. - VM

Sep 9, 2015 - Leaving Orange County

Anita, Vicki, Judi B and Judi C are off to see a couple of National Parks and visit Judi C's family in Iowa.

You aren't allowed to try and climb the rock (which is lame) but apparently there is a lot of wildlife about as I saw many signs for nature walks to spot otters, seals, various birds, whales, and the like.

Feb 9, 2008 - Santa Ana Elks

We're staying at the Santa Ana Elks lodge for about a week to catch up on family, doctor and dental appointments, truck repair, hair appointment, etc. This lodge is usually our third choice if Buena Park or Garden Grove Elks RV spaces are full, but it has GREAT lunch meals and friendly people.

Leslie is at the dive center doing his last training to finish his open-water certification. All land and air arrangements have been made and confirmed. I finished most of the travel shopping yesterday but have to exchange one pair of pants for Leslie and do a few last minute things today. I can hear the calypso music already!
