Our Trip From Tacoma to San Diego - July 14 - July 31, 2012
On the last day or our trip, we discovered Tillamook Naval Air Station along the Oregon coast. It was an active Naval Air Station from 1942 to 1948. They used it to launch blimps that patrolled off the coast watching for enemy ships and submarines. Now it is a museum and it has some very rare planes; some that none of the other air museums in the NW have in their collections. What a nice surprise to visit this facility especially since we had not heard about it before.
Solvang, CA - July 26, 2012
On our way back from San Diego, we stopped in Solvang, CA. It is a quaint Danish town in the middle of California. At one time it was best known for the pastries they made. I remember the elephant ears. Now Solvang is much bigger than it was in the 1980s when I was stationed at nearby Vandenberg AFB.
