Sunday November 27th and we leave behind our friends, neighbors and community that have become a much loved and wonderful part of our lives for the past 4 years. The house is empty, the storage unit is packed to bursting and our Honda Odyssey, "Foop Super-speed" (the boys named her) is loaded and ready to hit the road.
We also leave behind our 13 year old cat "Dido" and and our soon-to-be 10 year old chicken, "Blossom" who are being cared for by a two of our neighbors -- (see previous description of "wonderful and beloved").
Our first destination is the beach, to visit with old friends, surf and get into the habit of letting the days just flow one to the next without too much expectation. This may take a while...
