Drive

Driving home from San Francisco today...


I took this photo last week on our trip home from Eastern Washington...it seemed appropriate for today's post.

Can hardly wait to hear about your trip - ballet, shopping, dining, friends, sightseeing!

I agree with your quote, sometimes the best part of getting away is to get back home. Glad you had a great time.

What a gorgeous bridge - so light and airy. I always wonder how pretty structures like this can be strong enough to support all the cars that pass over it each day. *crosses fingers*

Love the quote, love to travel, always feel the same way described. Travel enriches the soul and heart in a way I find indescribable. I long for it, and so do my husband and kiddos, with every ounce of gypsy blood within us.

Hope your birthday was the BEST!

We did a drive across Washington State and Oregon a couple of years ago -- what beautiful country, and what clear blue skies!
