After unpacking dozens of boxes, hanging pictures, and generally having fun with my folks, we hit the road Wednesday afternoon. Spent the day driving into the sunset, which is sort of like when you're flying east to west--the sunset lasts much longer. Just spectacular oranges and reds for what felt like hours.
We reached our DESTINation in mid-evening and met up with Lisa's parents just to say hello and plan our next day. Our rendez-vous point was at a Super Wal-mart, near the Lube and Oil place. How very lovely ;-)
We are staying at a top-rated (best in the U.S. two years running) state park campground. It is just lovely--right by the beach, huge and private sites, and very nice bath facilities. Can't beat that. The weird thing is that it's right off the highway and near the world's largest Air Force base. Can't distinguish ocean sound from traffic sound, so we say it's all ocean (except when a truck goes by!) (We're clear that the fighter jets aren't ocean noises!)
