We’ve just come back from a north-south trek of approximately 2000 miles in under 2 weeks, and although road-weary, our hearts, minds, and bodies have been stretched to encompass the loved ones, new experiences, and places we encountered along the way. I’m always aware of the folks who care enough to read this, and as I think of you, I write and post pictures not to say “Look what we’ve done and seen! ” but, “Wish you were here.” This time, some of you were!
I took plenty of photographs in CA (on the road in the Central Valley and the SF Bay Area), Portland, OR, and Seattle, WA, but the majority were taken on Washington state’s Olympic Peninsula at Ft. Worden State Park where our family was reunioning. A good time was had by all, and to illustrate, here are some highlights.
To start, we’d been on the road for less than two hours when the traffic practically came to a halt, the cause of which was one of the most dramatic sights out of the van window–a still smoldering brush fire–very impressive to our youngest passengers even if the event added 2 hours of time in the car!
And this is only the first half…can you feel the sand between your toes?
