Tomorrow we depart for Camp Pendleton Marine Base in Oceanside camping at the Rv Park on the beach. This is our 4th trip and anxious to enjoy another beach. Our weather in Coronado has not been without rain, wind and cooler weather, but still managed to enjoy some days on the beach and collect some 4 dozen sand dollars. Will certainly miss the views across the bay and our morning trips to Bruegger's Bagels. We shall return either in the fall or early in 2018.

Earlier in the week, we walked the pier in Imperial Beach..10 miles south on 75. This seems to be a surfers beach.

Our friends, Denise and Phil who were in the site next to us at Nellis AFB, came in Tuesday. Sorry our visit will be short. Hopefully, we will connect again in April at Nellis.
Today it is raining and unable to view the ships across the bay. Has just been a lazy day. Since the drive up to Pendleton is only 50 miles, departure preparation will be done tomorrow.
Some of the kids sent us their Christmas Photos. Ryan was missing from Liz's as he was not feeling well and Christine failed to send one.

Also, Hope and family completed the 1,000 piece puzzle of the eagle. I had given it to Chuck for his birthday and he gifted back for grandsons. Maybe I will be the next to take the challenge as I want to frame it. The puzzle is difficult because it has no edges.
Redmond has had a very brutal winter. Temps in the teens and minus degrees. Even too cold and windy to build a snowman.
I have spent the last week working on our British Columbia, Yukon and Alaska trip for 2018. Think it will take most of the summer. Have been comparing notes from our friends Gloria and Jim who went last summer and our friends Alinda and Ernie who are going this summer. Since this will be the one and only visit, want to see as much as possible. Have been trying to convince John to take this trip for several years.
For our last hurrah, want to tour Newfoundland.
