At 37 years old, I dropped my baby boy off at college. And I now live alone for the first time in my life. Very strange. Very surreal.
Andrew and I took a three day journey down to Los Angeles, driving six (ish) hours a day, stopping at one major place a day. It was quite an easy and relaxing drive. I'm very thankful for my new car-it's so comfy and nice to drive.
Day one we went through the Redwoods, Avenue of the Giants and the Newton B. Drury Scenic Parkway. If you get carsick -in any way-this route is NOT for you. It's all curves, all the time.
|Really. It's big.|
|Came across a herd of about 30 wild elk.|
|Eating lunch, so we left them alone.|
|San Francisco was a wee bit foggy.|
|But the fog cleared out by lunchtime at the pier.|
|A little chocolate hedgehog! Delicious. I dropped an eyeball on the pier. Sad.|
|Jellyfish at the aquarium on the pier.|
|Spirals of fish.|
|We got lost and stumbled upon this killer museum. We walked the grounds and took a gazillion photos. It's like a painting! Too beautiful to be real.|
|Took a stop to see Andrew's Nana, who lives in San Fran.|
|This ranch literally has over 1,200 cattle!! It's cows as far as you can see. The smell is a tiny bit overwhelming.|
|Weird mounds of dirt in the middle of nowhere.|
|Andrew's new home for the next four years!!|
