I am going to try this one more time as my last post somehow floated away in cyberspace. Our road trip has been great as we traveled the central coast of California, went east and now in Bishop CA. where we are going to meet our son Gabe and his girlfriend Cristy. The plan is to fish at Lake Sabrina. Later today we plan to open one of the bottles of wine we got at just one of the many wineries we visited along the way and share that with Gabe and Cristy while mesmerized by the sierra mountains covered with snow!
Road trips are good on many levels I think because I take the time to look, to take in, to observe without the need to do anything. I may write something down or sketch but I like the quiet and peacefulness of being ok with just being. No judgement, expectation or busywork. At home I do 5 things at once and still feel like I haven't done enough. I was asked recently Where have you been? Santa Barbara, Grover Beach, Pismo Beach, San Luis Obispo, Monterey, Sonoma, Healdsburg, Placerville, and now Bishop near Mammoth on our way home.
We have visited with family, met new and very interesting people, experienced art studios of artists we know, visited galleries, wineries, drank delicious wines with food prepared with locally grown fresh vegetables and fruit. Fishing is Al's expertise but I am going to give it a try tomorrow. Maybe I will tell you about the big one that got away.
Safe travels everyone. xxx
