Well, here it is, the last day of November, and we are still on this chapter of our journey.
The Travel Chapter.
As Derek mentioned the other day,
sometimes you just want to read ahead to see what the next chapter holds.
But, no peeking allowed. I so want to peek.
It's been a BIT rainy these past few days in Northern California.
Not quite 40 days and 40 nights of rain ~~ but, I admit, I've been thinking of Noah.
Every time I smell wet dogs, I think of Noah. I do.
Since Gold Beach Oregon ----
we've trekked inland to avoid high winds & flooding along the coast.
We drove through GARGANTUOUS and MAJESTIC Redwood Forests.
We walked beneath them and stood in awe.
Kai and Jack splashed and stomped in rain puddles.
We celebrated with my parents, their 63rd Wedding Anniversary,
at a cozy restaurant on the pier in Trinidad, California.
We saw orange starfish on the rock.
Yesterday, I woke up to Maxine decorated with flowers
and balloons and ribbons and streamers
SO MUCH FUN
~~ my family totally spoiled me on my birthday~ you are the best.
(and for the phone calls and facebook messages and e-cards ----thank you, I felt so loved!!!)
We're now in Petaluma, and my parents, affectionately nicknamed "YoYo and Boomer" are safely back in their Sacramento home. Thank you for visiting us and sharing in the journey! It was so much fun to celebrate anniversaries and birthdays and a Thanksgiving Dinner by the sea...and just be together.
Tomorrow, come rain or shine, we will continue our journey south,
and we'll keep adding pages to our travel chapter.
Even in the rain, God continues to give us rainbows, literally.
Love that about Him.
