We just got back to Phoenix after a great week with the Collins family on the west coast. It started with a large Andrew family gathering at the home of Eric Andrew and his partner Paul. Those two gentlemen have a beautiful home and throw a great party (awesome food and drink). I am hoping someone who got pictures from this event will send them my way so I can post them.
We then headed south to Rockaway Beach, OR. Amazingly, we had sunshine most days that we were there. We took walks on the beach, went wine tasting,cooked in the beach house, went hiking and managed to fit in a brewery tour amidst all the other activities.
We found these flowers on the Cape Lookout Trail - a very scenic and not terribly difficult hike.
Our Peru adventure begins tomorrow afternoon!!
