This photo was taken as my son, Todd, and I lifted off from San Diego International Airport, San Diego, CA. It is probably my last take off from San Diego. Todd moved out to San Diego when he graduated from Penn State in 2002. Brenda and I visited him out there many times before he decided to move back east in 2010.

While he was out there he coached the Mission Bay High School JV Boys Basketball team. When the Tedeschi Trucks Band was touring New England (Todd is a big Derek Trucks fan) I asked if he wanted to get tickets to one of their shows. He replied that they would be playing New Year’s Eve in San Francisco and was planning on going out west to see his former players in San Diego. His last JV team members were now seniors on the Varsity team. I said sure.

We planned driving down the Pacific Coast Highway from San Francisco to San Diego. If it was going to be our last trip we might as well do it right. Once we left San Diego we planned to fly into Charleston, SC to see Todd’s brother, John, and his family before heading back to RI.
