San Diego and Scottsdale, and Sedona

My middle daughter, Renee, drove from Scottsdale to Encinitas, to pick me up at the end of stay at the retreat. We stayed in Del Mar, continuing to enjoy the ocean views.

The second day to went to Balboa Park. It was the first time we had visited this incredible place. Usually in cities, I head for galleries or art museums, so I had missed this experience.

More orchids than I have ever seen in one place.

Renee and I did not run out the things to talk about the next day on the 6 hours drive to Arizona.

First evening in Scottsdale. Valarie, my first born, whom I had not seen in 4 years flew in from San Francisco. Joy, joy
