The Barning family's 2010 vacation - San Diego, California
San Diego is one of America's best summer-vacation getaways. Vivian and I escaped the Las Vegas heat for a week last summer with their son Randy who lives in steamy Austin, Texas. The Barnings called San Diego home from 1982-2005, 23 glorious years.
We are pictured in front of a statue of Vice Admiral Clifton Farragut, with the USS Midway in the background. The famous aircraft carrier is now used as a museum in San Diego harbor. The other photo is of Vivian and Randy in front of the famous Hotel del Coronado. The hotel was the backdrop for the 1959 motion picture "Some Like it Hot".
