October through December, 2019

Our drive down to Pacific Beach (PB) was uneventful until we were rear-ended sitting at a stop light in Saint George, Utah. No-one was hurt, but the Tesla sustained damage to its rear bumper and trunk. The car was drivable, and we made it to PB that evening. More on the accident below.

Dan spent some time with us on his drive from Tahoe to Baja to scatter some of Kristy's ashes and visit friends in La Paz. He connected with many friends along the way and helped Gary with a couple of odd jobs.

Kendal and mother-in-law Connie made a pre-Thanksgiving visit. We walked to an al fresco brunch on the beach then walked down the ocean beach with a return walk up the Mission Bay beach — about 5 miles! Both beaches are close to the house; most of the walk was on the beaches with a short diversion to get between beaches. This is one of the things we like about PB.
