After 563 miles and 12 and 1/2 hours of driving we arrived last night, to our home base, from whence all explorations for the next 6 days will begin. Along the way we saw pink clouds and rainbows, rolling hills and grasslands. There were no unicorns.
On we drove, our spirits high. We discussed Cat Stevens, the history of new age thinking, the class 1 soil of the Central Valley, and why egrets and cows might be grazing together in a field off highway 1.
We saw bridges and buoys and stopped for an appropriate road trip lunch of fish & chips with apple pie shakes.
To merely say it's pretty here would be a huge understatement.
Our day has begun with coffee on a bench overlooking the ocean. I recommend it highly.
