So on Wednesday, we headed off for a long-anticipated vacation. There were a few hiccups and we ended up leaving several hours later than we had planned, but we were finally on the road.
It was a glorious drive. I saw so much wildlife – a fox, a meadowlark (which I saw AND heard when we stopped for supper at the side of the road – I miss the sound of meadowlarks), a badger, a coyote, a few deer, hawks, a great-blue heron, even a mouse. PLUS I got to see the most awesome sunset! At one point part of the entire sky was orange! We drove in between two thunderstorms for a while and got to see some lightning.
It was so good. I have been so looking forward to this holiday. It’s the first real road trip we’ve been on and I’m loving it. There have been times when the kids and fatigue have pushed my limits, but all in all, it’s been very good so far.
(and we’ve got a friend house-sitting for us while we’re gone, so no worries there)
