It’s great to be On Our Adventure again.
After six weeks in Colorado, we drove briskly using the northern/cooler route to Northern California. US 6 across Nevada is mighty desolate: Barely a car was seen. Nearing Reno, traffic increased and many cars were totally covered in white stuff. We think it was alkali on the cars returning from Burning Man.
Donner Pass on Labor Day Monday was essentially a parking lot of weekenders driving home. Welcome to California traffic!
Enough of the traffic. Pulled off at Emigrant Gap near Donner Pass and stayed several days in beautiful, peaceful, tall forest trees by the lake. Ahhhh.
When we resumed traveling, we enjoyed all the fields of produce growing in Central California as we headed south to visit friends and relatives. Great time in Morro Bay, Oceano, Santa Paula, Pasadena, Rancho Santa Margarita, and Lake Havasu with friends and relatives.
Experienced our first Sound Bath while in Pasadena. Quite the experience! Difficult to describe but highly recommend it. And the Vegan food at the restaurant before the Sound Bath completed the experience. I have the good fortune of eating fabulous food prepared by Sherry and JR and Debbie and Ellen and Belinda and Brenna and many of our other gifted friends so I’m not making any comparisons. I’m just saying it was really good.
Arrived at the ocean! Walked barefoot in the waves along the beach with Sherry. Great times.
Sherry and Julie the cockatoo were quite the pair talking to each other. Then the cockatoo would pretend to fall, laugh and look at us to see our reaction. Polly want a cracker? Ha ha ha.
Currently in the Phoenix, AZ, area preparing for a family wedding. After recovering from the wedding, plans include turning around and heading west into southern California. We look forward to your comments while we are On Our Adventure!
