|Our peek-a-boo view of the bay. (Broadstone Apartments)|
|The living room, just big enough for the few pieces of furniture we kept.|
|We could walk or ride our bikes along the bay in the evening.|
|While we lived on Coronado, our granddaughter, Riley was born!|
She was smaller than this...here she's about 3 months.

|We took the opportunity to sightsee...even after living in Southern California for 20 years, |
there were still plenty of things we hadn't done yet.
|We really enjoyed having friends come to visit! Here I am with Dona Watson.|
|Gary took sailing lessons at the Navy yacht club. The bay is perfect for beginners.|
With his flying and paragliding experience, he took to sailing really quickly and we rented a sailboat many weekends.

|Time to go! After 18 months, Gary decided to retire, so we said goodbye to Coronado.|
We'd downsized even more while living there, and emptied out our storage unit by
donating and giving away major appliances, yard equipment, and more furniture.
|When we arrived at the apartment, we had 12 of these crates. |
We fine-tuned down to three, and put them in long term storage.
|The kids came to celebrate Gary's "last day" of work with a lovely dinner at a fine SD restaurant.|

Words in quotes will become clear later.
|While we were living on Coronado, I wrote a completed my last novel,|
Misdirect, A Novel of Spies, the Sahara, and Searching for God.
|'Bye, San Diego!|
