We're Heading North

Today, Diane's cousin Charles will pick us up and drive north to San Luis Obispo where he and his wife Lois live. We'll stay overnight with them before heading further north to Yosemite National Park for the next few days.

San Luis Obispo
San Luis Obispo is located midway between Los Angeles and San Francisco. SLO, as it is refered to by locals has been described as 'the happiest city in America' by Oprah Winfrey and the National Geographic book 'Thrive' by Dan Buettner.


  1. I don't know about 'happy' but it's sure pretty up there.

  2. Gosh I didn't know that about SLO! But I do know that we have enjoyed visiting there. Have a marvelous time.

    Also, Bill, I have a blogger friend in Salt Lake City who would love to meet Diane and you if there is time when you stop there on your tour. She saw my blog post of June 13 about meeting Diane. Let me know if you are interested and I'll try to put you in touch with her. It may not be till after the 19th of June that I can do that.

  3. Enjoyed your Disney post about Diane's cousin's son giving you a tour. Back in the mid 80's we lived half an hour away from Disneyland. We had a LOT of visitors in those two years, all very welcome of course and I can't remember how many times we went heard that song, "It's a small, small world."

  4. p.s. enjoy your time up north.

  5. I've never heard of SLO before but I hope you're happy there - have just remembered to click over to this site to follow your travels.
    Keep safe. xx

  6. Enjoyed all your posts so much because I have never been in USA. It is very interesting, thank you. Have a good time!

  7. SLO is one of those "best kept secrets" towns...and the university there was my second choice for college.
    I am Sara's friend in Salt Lake City...if you come through here I would love torment you and show you around!

  8. Stupid auto correct. That is "love to meet you", not torment you!
