We made it home. So while I gather my thoughts and what few photos I have from my damaged camera .... here are a few details:
No one was injured, no big fights ensued, but it was touch and go at times
Saw two falling stars
Collected dirt and sand from each place we stopped
Picked up a dead dragonfly and crepe myrtle seed pods
Found the greatest rocks (and a heart rock) on a beach north of Eureka
Have a new appreciation for my own clean, flushing toilet
Foggy, windy, cold, winding drive up Hwy. 101
Listened to Earth, Wind and Fire the last two hours of the trip
The kids needed motion sickness medicine
Came home with clothes so foul they might have to be thrown away
Saw lots of wonderful wild flowers, collected a few in my notebook
I miss everything about SF!
Walked Haight Street in search of graffiti
M tagged a derelict house in Hwy 101
Harassed by more crazies in SF than I remember being there before
Visited my old neighborhood on Laguna Street and did a little shopping on Union.
Ate so much junk food at fast food places, I can't wait for a decent meal
While hiding out in the shade at Lake Shasta, observed a woodpecker's nest carved into a Madrona tree
I could use a laugh.
