West Coast USA - March & April 2015

A visit to the US to visit family and friends

Dianne and Phil - Idyllwild, California

Dianne and Phil are old friends from university days. They have a really neat house in Idyllwild.

Phil in his well appointed kitchen.

Apple trees in bloom in the backyard.

Hmmm, breakfast.

We took a nice day hike on the Devil's Slide trail.

Yep, still some snow on the ground.

It's me.

A few deer out back of the house.

Phil makes great pizza

I took the LA MetroLink train from San Bernardino to LA.

LA's beautiful Union Station.

Waiting for the next train at Traxx bar in Union Station

David and Suzie, Ventura, California

David is an old friend from High School days. He and Suzie have a beautiful ocean-view home in Ventura.

We had a great dinner at the Sportsman restaurant in downtown Ventura.

Waiting for the Pacific Surfliner at the Ventura Amtrak Station.

Gordon and Donna - Nipomo, California

Santa Barbara Amtrak station

The Surfliner hugs some of Southern California's most beautiful coastline.

Guadalupe Amtrak station

My Dad and Donna's Home

I love this huge Coast Redwood tree.

Breakfast at Quarterdeck. Lovely eggs Benedict.

Sunday Brunch at the Santa Maria Inn

Breakfast at the Cowgirl Cafe

Alice and Champs - Portland, Oregon

The Pacific Parlor Car on Amtrak's Coast Starlight.

Yes, it snowed.

Eugene Amtrak station

This is how the bartender keeps your bar tab in the Parlor Car

Coming in to Portland

Amtrak's Portland Station

Portland has an unbelievably vast number of beer brewing and drinking establishments. This is Fathead's

My sister, Alice, and Champs have a lovely apartment in the Pearl District of Portland. 

They are both camera shy.

I am not camera shy.

From simple to fancy, the taprooms are endless.

We cycled everywhere. Alice had a pulled hamstring so she sat while Champs peddled.

Portland has a wonderful airport
