Of the 11 days I was gone 8 of them I was driving from town to town and I LOVED IT! I am such a nomad at heart. Living out of my suitcase and my VW bug suited me. I drove down to Ukiah Ca. where it was between 104 and 109 in the day and in the mid 80's at night. HOT! I spent 3 days there with a friend. Then down to Novato for my husbands life celebration of his Aunt. Another wonderful celebration. My husband and I then headed back North, home. We stopped at the beaches in Oregon~ long stretches of beach with not a sole on them but us and the seagulls. I didn't get a picture of that.
Portland Oregon was the last stop before home. I think if I were to live in a city this would be the one! Progressive, a river, a LOT of public art, and an hour from the beaches!

I'm glad to be back ~

Beautiful journey! Thank you for your sharing your trip with us. I have been to Astoria, Oregan when I was maybe 12. Beautiful! And the ocean there is so different from the ocean here... quite and dark. I will never forget it.
I hope you're have a good time!
Be safe~

How beautiful Pattee! I so want to take my daughter to the Northwest, it such a magnificent place. One day. I used to be a nomad and understand the glory of being on the open road. So glad you and your husband got this time together. If you don't mind my asking what is a life ceremony?

amazing photos. Living in the UK it always seems wildly romantic to me that in the US you can take off and drive for days passing through beautiful places like this !
Thanks for sharing it was a treat to look at the photos :0)
