California’s been good to me; hope it don’t fall into the sea

Enchanted Land

Crossing the state border into Oregon was almost painful. I watched the sign approaching on my right and I knew that I was driving my last few feet inside of California and I promise to you: I winced. Here is an ode then to those 24 hours before that moment, when I was still cruising up Coastal Hwy 1.

Oh, but first: brownie points if you know where the title of this post comes from.

    I would wince, too, to leave such beautiful scenery! Gorgeous pictures. I can’t wait to go visit California myself some day.

    I love California so much. Especially the laid back central Cali and Highway 1. I also love that pic of Renny in front of the big dog mural. Classic!!!

    This is making me REALLY excited for our highway 1 drive, just under 2 weeks away!

      Oh, and how you are going to love your trip. I am so excited for you! Especially since I am in Seattle now, your future home, which I just adore. What a great city you’ve chosen.
