2014 Photo Album

We began the year with a motorhome road trip from University Place, WA
to Redding, Chowchilla and Pismo Beach CA. We were joined by relatives
Bob and Pat in their new motorhome and later Jim and Carol in their 5th-wheel.

It was the beginning to a very busy year!

Laveta & went to Hearst Castle for our honeymoon back in'64  (50 years ago!)
so we decided to visit it again.  It was just a day trip from Pismo.  Back in '64 we toured
the lower (main) rooms & grounds.  This time we saw the upper rooms and grounds.
The castle hadn't changed much- can't say the same for us.

              Roman Pool (indoor)

On our last week in Pismo, a strong storm blew in from the Pacific. 
Though it didn't last long- it was wild.  Laveta & I were the last persons on the
Pismo pier before the Police and Fire departments closed it to the public.
