Our friend Tim Baker and his twin sister Cindy, celebrated their 60th birthday in October.  We were invited to join them at their party.  It was held at Sweetwater Regional Park in Bonita, CA, a little southeast of San Diego.

The party was really nice and very fun.  It was held in the community center at the park.  They had catered snacks and a live band.  We had a really good time and enjoyed meeting their family and friends.

Of course, Tim and Dinah live in Prescott, AZ, so they brought their RV so that they could park at Sweetwater for the party.  The park has a very nice campground with really spacious RV sites.  And, they generously invited us to stay overnight with them in their RV.

We were so happy to be able to share this special occasion with Tim.

New Year's Eve - Long Beach

From San Diego we headed north up to Long Beach to park at the Golden Shores RV Resort.  We have stayed here before since it is the closest RV park to Torrance.  It takes only about 15 minutes to get to Valerie’s Mom’s house from there.

We made the move to Long Beach on New Year’s Eve.  From the park it is a very short walk into the heart of downtown Long Beach.  We took the above picture as we made that walk on New Year’s Eve.  You can see the Queen Mary and a Carnival cruise ship in the background.  Along Pine Avenue you can find many options for food and beverages.  So, early in the evening of 12/31/2018, before it got too busy with celebrants, we walked along Pine Ave and stopped into a couple of the restaurants to snack and raise a glass to the new year.

On New Year’s Day we went to Mom’s to kick off the new year with her “good luck soup”.
