six days on the road & i'm gonna see my baby 2 nite

Actually, we were seven days, a solid week, traveling from Port Ludlow, Washington to St. George, Utah. And now we're here, and are planning to rest our weary bones tomorrow and get ready for a new direction.

It was what you'd call a slow, meandering trip. The most incredible sight of the entire journey was this piano, sitting on a ridge overlooking the ocean just south of Half Moon Bay, CA. We had parked so Kit could snap a photo of the surf, and climbing a small rise to get her picture, she stumbled on it, and got this singular photo of a badly out of tune upright, with a few keys missing, but still quite playable.

Our six stops along the way:

Portland, OR

Newport, OR

Crescent City, CA

Santa Rosa, CA

Paso Robles, CA

Barstow, CA

So here we are back in the desert, where I more or less started from five years ago. The first thing I noticed being back here: it's much easier to breathe in a dry climate.

thanks, FB. So far it's been extremely tiring.
I guess 70 isn't the new 50 after all!
