Totally unplanned for us, but workable. Phil happened to check our website, noticed we were traveling west and said he would be in California the middle of September. We were on our way to visit our son in Sonoma and then moving down to Simi Vallely to visit friends there. It was easy to adjust our stay to include meeting Phil and Doris. Many of you probably recognize the beach, it's at the Santa Monica Pier. We stayed in Santa Paula, Phil and Doris were in Ventura a short drive away. Fires were burning North of us, we had a lot of smoke. To get away from it Phil took us on a Pacific Coastal Drive from Santa Barbara to Santa Monica over the two days that we were together. It was a fun time for all of us for a couple of days. Nice surprises happen through the Forum. Today we head towards Arizona to settle down for awhile.
