road tripping recovery



We just returned from a ten day road trip up to Oregon, across California, into Nevada, and back home again. There was a lot of driving. A LOT of it. There was also some crafting, thrift shopping, berry picking, shell collecting, scrabble playing, museum going, camping, and a lot of wanderting and hiking.

There was also picture taking. Goodness. SO MANY PHOTOS.

So as I eke out time for editing in between family visits, daily errands and chores, and oh yes...packing for our upcoming move, I will attempt to get some posts up about our summer adventure. The above montage is a peak at day one which mostly involved seven hours of driving with a stop to refuel both dear Eleanor and ourselves. We ended our evening in Garberville, California resting our weary noggins at the Sherwood Forest Motel.

I still have far too many photos to edit and garlands to find so I can mail those out. So much to do and so so so little time to NOT panic about it all. Yikes! Have you had any fun summer adventures?

  1. Sounds like. Wonderful adventure! Have you been to Ashland Oregon? I've been reading about it and it looks like a fun little town! Good luck with the move!

  3. That is too funny my husband (now wasn't then) and I stayed at the Sherwood Forest Motel when we did a trip down 101 in 2008. The motel was funny, the restaurant to the front of it was open and went there for dinner. There were a lot of like serious hippies that we joked were part of the Earth Liberation Front..lol. The rest of the town was shuttered up for the night. Next time you're passing through Medford Oregon we could take you to lunch!
