January Travels

In January we went down to the Southern California Desert, where my parents were retired and saw some old friends of ours. Bev and Al are both in their 90s now and both are still active. On Wednesdays they work as volunteers at the Eisenhower Medical Center, so Sharon and I wnet off to the Living Desert Museum. I had my camera with me, so I played.

It really is a remarkable place and worth checking out if you find yourself in the area.

From there we passed through Los Angeles on our way home and spent the better part of a day catching up with Linda and Howard, friends from grad school/med school days. We'd not seen them in the better part of a decade, but suddenly it was just like old times except for that fact that we are the ones who are old now.

It had been a long time since we had seen the Huntington Museum and Gardens (my first visit was to see Shakespeare manuscripts as part of the 400th anniversary of the poet's birth in 1964), so it was nice to spend a couple of hours there in the afternoon

Our next travels: the East Coast of the US from the Chesapeake to Prince Edward Island in April and May. Planning currently underway.
