This is a follow-up post to the “Salutes to the 2015 San Luis Obispo Antique Bottle Show – Morro Bay” post from our recent bottle trip out west to see our good friends Jerry and Helen Forbes of Big Sur, California. Of course there were lots of great bottles at the show, and a few more pics are posted below, but there were other pictures that completed our experience. I thought I would share a few.

One of the main reasons we went west this March, besides the San Luis Obispo Antique Bottle Show was to visit with Jerry and Helen Forbes. I will not show pictures again of this house and bottles as I covered that visit in the past, though last time Elizabeth was not with me.
