I am currently packing up to get ready for a pleasant, long road trip down the west coast. I am looking forward to the beautiful Pacific Coast. Hopefully we will steer clear of any tsunamis.
Here's the plan. Hood River, down to Portland then taking highway 1 along the coast all the way to San Luis Obispo. From what I hear it's delightful drive. I cannot wait to see all the green and experience the clear air. Not to mention I haven't been to California since I was six! Also, I'll be meeting the majority of Erik's extended family which is terribly exciting.
It makes me think of the Decemberists song..
Take a long drive with me
on California One, on California One.
And the road a-winding goes
from golden gate to roaring cliff-side,
and the light is softly low
as our hearts become sweetly untied
beneath the sun of California One.
I will be sharing my journey for the next week!
