Old Travel Memories (1970)

(from web image file)

In 1970, we piled into our white 1963 VW Beetle and drove from San Diego, California,  to visit the Oregon coastline.
I was shocked when I stopped to buy gasoline near Tillamook and looked at their prices.
"Gas in San Diego is only 25 cents a gallon," I proudly boasted, when I saw his 27 cents a gallon price tag.
"Well, go back to San Diego, then!" he shouted. (I thought that was kind of rude.)
Things change, don't they?

Next, back to Western Australia and one of my favorite towns.
