1993 Florence, Oregon postcard to Wendy - Aug. 11
Had good but scary ride on Sand dunes – like roller coaster without a track.
Look forward to seeing you real soon.  Met gal who had been an exchange student to So. Africa – had English accent now but really love it.  Also learned some Africaan.
Love to Mom & Dad
Much love, G'pa & Gma U.
