In September we took a trip from Rohnert Park north to visit my Sister Shirley and her Husband Frank. We spent the first night (Sept 17th) in Grants Pass Oregon. The next night (the 18th) we spent with Margie's cousin Emmy and her husband Daniel near where he is stationed in Ft. Lewis Washington. On the 19th we finally reached my sisters house in Sequim Washington. The next day Margie, Shirley, Frank and myself boarded the Coho Ferry and traveled up to Victoria BC. On the 21st we went to "Butchart Gardens" and then took the afternoon ferry back to Port Angeles and Sequim. We spent one more night with my sister and then on the 22nd we drove down to Kent Washington to spend 2 nights with our close friend Imelda. Imelda introduced me to Margie back in 1998. We had a great time in Kent and even ran into Margie's cousin Melina who we had lost contact with several years ago. From Kent we drove to Orofino Idaho on the 24th. We spent the afternoon and evening with my buddy Cliff and his kids and grand kids. On the 25th we made it to Boise to spend two nights with our friends from Dumaguete City, Cyril and Charito. The second night we were there we all had dinner at an all you can eat place named "CHUCK A RAMA". We got our old friends Gary and Pattie from Lake County in California to have dinner with us. Gary and Pattie live in Nampa Idaho. (see the story below this first set of pictures)

During our visit to Idaho we discovered we could afford to buy a house there. We bought a house then sold it to move to the Philippines and have since returned and bought another house.
