2000 - Summer Trip to California

(The postcards we didn't send)

This year Family Kern did separate vacations, Ron & Sue to CA and Nora to North Carolina & then a basketball tournament in Europe. Below are some of the stops Ron & Sue made:

Mission Espada, San Antonio, TX - Tour of San Antonio Missions National Park

Our personal record for hottest temperature in the shade. Measured in both AZ and CA. Our new van has a/c that works!

Surfing at Sunset Cliffs in San Diego

And surfing at Tourmaline in San Diego

Modern Art Museum in La Jolla for Diego Rivera exhibit

7a.m. at Malibu Pier and 35 guys out already. Too crowded for me!

Getty Art Museum in L.A. The complex was as amazing as the art & collections inside.

Beautiful Santa Barbara, CA

Morro Rock, Morro Bay, CA Watching the sunset

Big Sur coast. One splendid view after the next.

Wonderful light on the Big Sur  

Air Tour of San Francisco, hold on to your seats, Ron's flying the plane!

Great restaurant, Susan's in Sutter Creek, CA with friends Tom & Carole

Niebaum Coppola Winery in Napa

Some great camping and windsurfing at Sherman Island, Rio Vista, CA

Foggy dusk drive along Point Reyes National Seashore

More Big Sur coast on the way home  

A vista on the Big Sur we had never discovered before. The waterfall on the beach is really cool.

San Xavier Mission in Tucson, AZ

Dinner at Casa Rio on the San Antonio Riverwalk
