I have just returned from Auburn to the U.K. after my son’s wedding, Jay, to Auburn resident, Ellen — congratulations. I loved the area and the people are just so friendly. We were staying in a house near Colfax (thanks Tim) and we did some travelling around — from Lake Tahoe to Monterey, some 2,000 miles overall. A big thanks to all those we encountered to make us feel so welcome and at home. We even came across the “Allison Hotel” in San Francisco, now that was a bonus!
