Now, a few weeks ago, I was contacted by a reader, Nicole Gillison who was planning a birthday surprise for her wife, LaRay. Nicole planned a tour of some of the locations featured in the series. She asked me for some details and then went to work on the tour. I'm going to let you see and hear what they found!
LaRay wrote:Wow what an adventure we had! :)We took a lot of pictures; sadly we dropped the good camera and ended up taking a lot of pictures with our cell phone. So not sure if you can use or would want to use any of them but I'm happy to share all these pictures with you.Nikki did such a great job at walking me through the books. She did this whole tour guide with stories of who, where, and what. It was really nice.We found a real biker bar in El Cajon, the closest one to a biker bar here in town is Hi Cera and well that is a dive but not a biker bar. Dego is a true Hells Angels Biker bar so we went over there took a picture, wow it was a rush too just picturing Anna, and David doing a bounty in there.We went to Sea Port Village- (Could this be the view from Anna's office?)Her Cottage (tried to pick which one we thought),The view from Avery's house a top Mt. Soledad:Balboa Park. Can you spot the secret doorway?There is a house in Hillcrest, we always said reminds us of the Witch's house. So we drove over there took a picture. :)Driving near the Coronado Bridge flashed the memories of Anna being in Coronado and searching for Burke.We wanted to go to the Sea Cliffs but didn't get a chance to go, there happened to be a big surprise waiting for me at the end of the day and we had a time crunch so had to cut it off by 6pm so Avery's was our last stop. :)This was an amazing birthday, with your help all your books we had a wonderful day.So amazing! :)

There are more pictures and I plan to post all of them on my website in the next few weeks. LaRay and Nicole-- you two are the greatest. I can't think of a nicer complement than the one you've paid me.
