Good luck
Keep everyone posted. We arrived back in the U.S. on March10th. Shortly after that all the flights from Argentina to the U.S. stopped so we were extremely fortunate. Glad you are in a comfortable hotel. I have friends locked down in Spain until the end of the month hopefully on until then. Thinking of you.

Safely Back in the U.S.
After flights from Marrakesh, Morocco to London (Friday), London to Dallas/Fort Worth (Saturday) and DFW to Phoenix (Sunday), I am back in the U.S getting by body readjusted to the time zone change, AGAIN.

European extravaganza
Larry, I've enjoyed your USA travels, and am so looking forward to "our" European vacation. Thanks for taking me along, even if it is digitally.

It does sound like a great trip.

You left me wanting more
The organ visit description is very interesting and will be shared by directing reader to it. I was very interested in the lighthouse and would have been asking Buddy lots of questions about the optics. 22 and a half miles is a long way.

Check out the Fresnel lens on Google. That might help.

What to see!
Larry, you saw more than my wife did up there while visiting her father back in the 70's, but the place is probably a little more civilized now.

In All My Years of Saloons-Hopping Around this Great Country, I Cannot Remember Ever Seeing the Bar Rail Refrigerated to Keep the Brewski Ice Cold – Here’s to Iowa, Where the Corn Is Tall and the Hops Are Cold

Refrigerated bar rail
We were on a cruise ship that had an iced bar rail at the Martini Bar to keep them cold. It was pretty cool.

loving it.
Larry , thanks for the great blogs. We've travelled in the States a couple of times, but unless we move there, there is absolutely no way I could visit all these wonderful places. So thanks for taking the time to share.

Glad to share
Hi Sue, I'm glad you're enjoying my blogs. I first intended them to serve as "rocking chair" material in the future but have found that many enjoy the adventure as much as I. Thanks again. Larry

Thoroughly enjoyed reading your adventures on the peninsula. I'm new to the area and have meant to visit some of those places written about but lost my motivation. You have inspired me. For the 2017 Kite Festival I was in SoCal so I'm looking forward to witness it this year (2018). I Thank You so very much for the insights to the places where I now live. I too am a retired firefighter, 26 years US NAVY.

Thanks for the comment. It's good to know that I'm not doing this exercise merely for my personal nostalgia down the road a few years. I genuinely enjoyed exploring your new home and hope you do as well.

Utah's many secrets
For this traveler from Oz I am intrigued by the wonders and secrets of Utah. We discovered some of its wonders on our Utah/Arizona roadtrip during a polar vortex in 2015 but you have given so many reasons to return there. Who can resist dinosaur fossil areas, petroglyphs, striated landscapes, maybe running into the ghost of Butch Cassidy who appears to have returned from Bolivia? Great stuff..

Intriguing Utah
Thanks for the comment. The national parks of Utah get some publicity, but there is much, much more. Utah is probably one of the most off the grid diamonds in the rough in America.

My travels
I started the blog as a diary for my personal benefit in years hence; however, I have found others enjoy reading about my travels almost as much as I enjoy the journey itself.

Fort Leonardwood,Mo.
In 1956 I joined the Army Reserve. We took a bus starting in Fort Dodge and picking up recruits along the way. Somewhere in eastern Missouri, I think Jefferson City, we stopped for a short bathroom break. I saw for the first time a separate drinking fountain and bathroom for the blacks and whites I just remember it made quite an impression on a 17 year old greenhorn from Central Iowa.
