We finally ecided to go watch our Gonzga Bulldogs play in the West Coast Conference basketball Tournament in Las Vegas. We stayed in The Bellagio hotel, did some sight-seeing, had some really good food, and watched two great basketball games. Paul is a 1985 graduate of Gonzaga and we love to root for our Zags.

Our Trip From Tacoma to San Diego - July 14 - July 31, 2012

 

 

On the last day or our trip, we discovered Tillamook Naval Air Station along the Oregon coast. It was an active Naval Air Station from 1942 to 1948. They used it to launch blimps that patrolled off the coast watching for enemy ships and submarines. Now it is a museum and it has some very rare planes; some that none of the other air museums in the NW have in their collections. What a nice surprise to visit this facility especially since we had not heard about it before.

 

Solvang, CA - July 26, 2012


On our way back from San Diego, we stopped in Solvang, CA. It is a quaint Danish town in the middle of California. At one time it was best known for the pastries they made. I remember the elephant ears. Now Solvang is much bigger than it was in the 1980s when I was stationed at nearby Vandenberg AFB.
