First Trip

We took our first trip this week. We went to San Diego with our friends Kathy & Jerry for a few days. The fifth-wheel is great and we're learning how to get it into a camp site and get it set up. Give us time, we'll be old pros.

We went to Old Town.
Here you can see Kathy and Blue having a little chat.

Blue had fun on this covered wagon that was in a plaza at Old Town.

Then we went to the park that has the statue of "The Kiss", the famous photo taken in Times Square on VJ-Day.

Check here to see more about the photo:

As you can see Blue liked the statue too.

Els & Brigitte

Well, Blue Bird didn't go with me today when I met with Els and Brigitte who are visiting from Belgium. (I also saw Karen again too since they stay with her.) Els practically lives here she visits so often and it was fun to finally meet Brigitte after knowing her for many years from an online group. And of course they brought me chocolate - Yumm!

I forgot to take Blue and I forgot my camera so I have no pictures to post, but I should be able to see them again before they go home.

Getting Started

We set up this blog to document our travels.

We decided to use a glass blue bird that belonged to Sherry's grandma. Grandma always said that she had a blue bird of happiness on her shoulder and that is how she lived her life. No matter what happened to her she made the best of it and that's our retirement goal. Grandma's blue bird will be traveling with us.

More later,
