Not actually driving about much, I finally did a small road trip. I went down to LA for a wedding. Spring is a good time to be out and I was able to snap a few pictures.
There are choices to be made in life. I could have made this a “History” post, as it occurred last fall, but it happened while driving about. Enjoy the break from what’s left of winter.
Even you are not as pretty as the leaves today. The dazzling sun is making the colors pop. The reds, the golds, the yellows, Blue skies, white clouds, evergreens frame the scene. A kaleidoscope of fallen leaves spread out in front. My camera fails to record this properly. But I see, I remember, I'm overwhelmed. The day we first met The sun illuminated your form. Your laughter echoed through the hills. Your thoughts flowed with mine. My feet barely touched the path. But I saw, I remember, I was overwhelmed. The story of the leaves does not end.
Yes, I am staying at a (different) Airbnb place.
Of course I made it home. It was a very enjoyable drive. I really liked Astoria. It’s a very, very, very small San Francisco, which makes it quaint.
Here are a few more pictures. The Sea Lions and Bald Eagle were in the Astoria Harbor. The water is the Columbia. And the big mountain is Mt Hood. Always a good day when you can see Mt Hood.
I am on the road right now and just caught up to an electrical plug. Yes, there is a reason behind this drive, but I’ll fill you in later. Right now I’ll throw out some of the new pictures taken and then go to bed. Camping is not as easy as it once was. BTW, I’m throwing in a picture of my faithful carrier in her winter shoes. Enjoy.
