So, things have definitely changed

First of all, we're not moving.  I'll try to make this brief.  We had a place picked out. We had the movers scheduled, and I had already started packing. Then we got the inspection report on our new place (a double wide mobile home in a senior park).  It was the best $400 we ever spent. The asking price was $20K, and there must have been $20K worth of repairs that needed to be done (new roof, new heater, rcconnect gas lines, new water faucets everywhere, new garbage disposal, termite fumigation/treatment - and that's just a beginning.)  We weren't willing to make those repairs, and the inventory in Bishop is pretty skimpy, so we decided to stay put in Forest Falls and travel from there.

Our first trip, a short one, was in March to the beach at Camp Pendleton in Oceanside.  We were able to get a site right on the beach, and the weather was perfect the whole time we were there.  Don was able to go out on a boat two times, though he didn't bring any fish back (all were too small).  But it was a nice time for me to relax and visit a couple of local quilt shops.

This US Navy ship was anchored offshore for the 4 days we were there.
