Four Moretons Go West EASTER 2018 - **COMPLETE**

You are probably wondering why I am publishing this trip report nearly 2 years after we arrived home. :erm: Well, up until yesterday (Feb 12th 2020) we believed that the notes from the trip had been left on the plane home. However, when Lee was looking for something, he came across the book with all our notes in. After flicking through the notes, we decided to write them up and publish another trip report.

A lot has happened since this trip: we have moved house, been back to Florida, I have changed jobs and we have booked to go back to the West coast later this year!

As always, the main motivation for writing the trip report is that we can look back on it as a family and relive our memories.

Also, Lee and I are getting to the age where our memories are not our strong point.:grin:
Another reason is to hopefully help people who are going on a trip in the future. So please feel free to ask any questions you may have.

This was our 2nd trip to the West Coast, we all loved our first trip but there is so much to see and do we felt the need to go back, this time however it would be just the 4 of us (without Lee's parents)

We wanted to do somethings we did on the last trip but there are lots of new experiences that we hadn't got to do on the previous visit. I wanted this holiday to be more of road trip, so you will see we did travel around a bit.

As it was 2 years ago, the trip report may be more photo heavy than my normal efforts, but I will do my best to provide useful information.
Enjoy 😊
