The other day my son and I changed the shocks on the bus. I drove to the coast for a test drive and a cigar. OMG… what a difference! She corners soooo much better. As I was passing the strawberry and cabbage fields in Camarillo I was thinking… It makes me happy to live 10 minutes away from the ocean 😀

I have a few trips planned this summer. The first is mid-June to camp out at San Onofre and paint in the “Paint San Clemente” festival for a week. Then the first week of July, to Huntington Lake in the High sierra’s. Camping on the lakeside with a friend and our three boys. He has a sail boat so we’ll do some sailing and fishing. Of course I’ll be painting too.
