It was a beautiful morning at the beach. Clear, warm - nice!
Then we cleaned up and got ready to take Kelly to the Long Beach Airport.
This is the hardest part of the Christmas time - saying good by after a great time with folks. I remember how much my mom used to hate that time after we went back to college.
However--we have had a hugely good time with family and are very grateful to be here.
Plus we were able to get an upated family photo:
which is only a small portion of the good times we had together. It has been a really great time for us.
It was time for us to head out to the airport.
She had a 12:50 flight to Dallas by way of Phoenix. After a sandwich and waiting a while, we finally said our good byes. :(
After we left the airport we checked with the other Warners and found out that we could meet for lunch. We found a Rubio's and it worked out well.
After lunch we went over to Nate and Angela's to hang out a couple of hours.
About 4:30 Heidi and Reid & Amy departed for the airport and more goodbyes.
That was a good time for us to leave and go back to Camp Pendleton. But first, we took Ben home and got to see his and Leslie's house. --Very nice (although I forgot to take pictures).
As we were making our way back to I-5 we passed a Korean area of town and decided to have dinner there.
Since Pam and I spent a year in Korea while we were in the Air Force, and both Adam and Meghan lived in Seoul while they taught English--we all love Korean food. This restaurant was recommended by Nate and it was a great one. But we had way too much food :)
Afterwards, we went got some Starbucks coffee for the 90 minute drive back to our campground and that was it for the day.
Thanks for checking in on the Roadrunner Chronicles!
