Postcards from the road home

View from Starbucks on the Palos Verdes Peninsula, CA.

We took a week to drive back from Sedona via Southern California and up along the Oregon and Washington coasts. It was sunny in SoCal, a mix of sun and rain in Oregon, and mostly rainy in Washington. The desert seems long ago and far away.

Here are some postcards from the road.

No nude sunbathing with rattlers in Southern CA.

Oregon looks like Blighty - all grey and wet! I would be very at home in Oregon. California, on the other hand, looks all exotic!

It was real... I was there! And you'll be back, I insist! Love the pix of the jellyfish... very colorful!

Wow, I can see you had a real good time, well, except for the fact that there was no nude bathing.

Oh goodness, snakes on the beach! Then yes, no nude sunbathing! What a great collection of vacation shots. I particularly like the one looking out the paned window for some reason.

I do find it interesting that the snake sign felt it necessary to suggest keeping your distance (although I suppose there would be those thinking to poke with a stick). Puts me in mind of one of my favorite CA signs - Slippery when icy. Duh!
