Vacationing in California

It was so very nice to just get away from the routine and spend a few days relaxing and doing some enjoyable things like biking around the campus of California State University at Fullerton. The campus was empty of students. There was a lovely arboretum and two bike paths which allowed lots of cool biking early in the morning. This all ended with a stop off at Starbucks for a cup of java. My biking partner was wife's brother-in-law, Edward P. Faulk. He works as a computer geek for Beckman Coulter of Fullerton. This company serves the medical community with high tech testing equipment. Ed loves his California and not sure if he will remain there after retirement or move to a quieter area.

My wife and I spent eight nights with her sister. They have a very comfortable travel trailer parked on their driveway. It was like our own motel during the night. We did some nice dining places around Fullerton and the greater Orange County area. I am attaching one of them with this blog. Ed's family loves Mexican food and the locally based restaurants are their haunts regularly.

This stop was just one of several we made in our round the country Amtrak trip.
