Welcome to this edition of News for the Week—a look at boomer travel ideas, news and deals.
Believe it or not, I’m packing away the Christmas decorations. Next week, Alan and I head to the Oregon Coast. A king tide is predicted on December 21 – 23 (super high tides), plus there are coastal storms in the forecast. Yes, we’re excited about photographing the action and experiencing Christmas at the beach.
