The Rose Bowl Parade

(Chuck and Jan) Here we are; the Poutneys, Moores aFrom Dee 014nd Richmans bright 119 - Copyand early on New Years Day waiting to watch the 2010 Rose Bowl Parade.  We did managed to get front row seats in front of the Pep Boys at 1135 East Colorado Blvd. The morning started off chilly but by parade time it was a perfect day! For many years we watched this parade on television so it is a real pleasure to see it in person. It was a thrill seeing the floats out on the street after having working on several of them. The bands and equestrians groups were incredible as were the dancers and entertainers surrounding many of the floats. It was a wonderful experience for all of us.

After the parade we three couples got together with Ken and Sue at Subway for lunch and also visited with Luke and Judy who were in town for the parade. But all good things must come to an end and by 2:00 we were all back on the road in different directions.  Chuck and I have spent the last two nights at Anza-Borrego State Park and will head to Sidewinder tomorrow.
