Home Stretch

We made it as far as Baker City in eastern Oregon yesterday, about halfway home. We’re definitely not on the coast any longer: it’s light early (being on the the extreme edge of the timezone) and there is a heavy layer of frost on everything. Breakfast at the Lone Pine, followed by another 400-ish miles with a short break in Twin Falls to see my mom, get fuel (for the car and us), and then we’re home.

Past Two Days

Two days of wind and rain; long beach walks in the wild weather, coming back wet and wind-blown; enjoying the always shifting tide and light; watching eagles wade in the slough/creek that crosses the beach just north of here; reading, playing the pinochle game that never ends, and time together. We’ve much to be thankful for…
