There are multiple reasons why I launched this blog. Being one of a gazillion other travel blogs is not on top of the list, but I do have a few good reasons. While there are indeed a LOT of travel blogs (and various assorted other blogs) out there, I wanted to put just a bit of a different spin on mine and I knew food needed to be a piece of the puzzle.
May 28, ’11 – Yeah baby! We did it! 3,760 miles from our front door in Ashland, OR to our hotel entrance in Washington DC and right on schedule. We arrived in D.C. to 89 degrees and clear blue skies and our first sighting was that of Georgetown University, on the hill overlooking the Potomac River, and it was a special moment as we have so many fond memories of Dustin’s 4 years at Georgetown.
Remember? I am a lover of history, especially American history and the settling of the American west, so you’ll understand why today’s (Saturday, May 21) history tour was a HUGELY happy day for me.
Once we settled in to our rental house, in Ashland, we had about six weeks to call our own before we had to get down to business. What to do?! What to do?! Road Trip!
Way back in another lifetime when we were much (much) younger, we were married in Honolulu, HI. Just the two of us, a judge, and the judges’ clerks who served as our witnesses. It wasn’t a formal wedding by any stretch of the imagination, but it was our wedding and it stuck!
Yosemite has been a
big huge significant influential part of our lives. I’ve lost track of how many times we’ve visited Yosemite, long before the days of digital, that’s for certain. Many, many years ago we took to traveling for the 4-day Thanksgiving weekend, almost always to the Sierra’s, the CA gold country and many visits to Yosemite.
