Honey, I'm Home !!!

Hello out there all you Bloggers !

Linda is home & I wanted you to know I'll be doing a real post soon. We got in about 2 o'clock this afternoon, the camper is unloaded, there are 7 piles of laundry all sorted & waiting to be washed and bags of stuff all over the living room, to be sorted thru. As usual I did do a little shopping here & there, but as we unloaded the camper...it just got all thrown together and brought in the house and dumped.

We traveled a total of 2,813 miles and again were blessed to not be involved in an accident, nor did we see one. I'm always grateful for that. We saw this country's beautiful west coast twice, since we took Highway 101 both ways. And for awhile, coming home we were right down close to the ocean on Highway 1 but had to back track and head over to 101 because of wildfires near Big Sur. We did camp on night on Highway 1, in the San Simeon campground near Hearst Castle (that night is nearly a full entry in itself~coming later). I thought of you Bucko when we walked out on the pier at Pismo Beach the second time...it was another beautiful warm sunny day and there were lots of surfers out there. Coming home the gas prices were lower....Bob spent $373 for gas coming home, while the gas going south in September came to $441. The $68 dollar difference is about the equivalent to an extra tank of gas.

Well, I've got to get off here and get busy....I'll be back later.......Linda

I was just thinking about you the other day and wondering if you made it home yet. I look forward to hearing all about the trip.
That is a big savings on gas.

Hi Linda,

Welcome home. :o)

I`m glad you are home safely. Isn`t it a real chore having to do all that washing after being away for a holiday? It`s the one thing I dread. It`s not so much the washing but the ironing afterwards. :o(

Love Sandra xxxx
