One of my very best friends from Texas, Rebecca Russell, decided to take a road trip with her husband along Rt. 66–on a Harley! What an adventure. They started in Vinita, OK, and traveled west to Santa Monica, CA, where Rt. 66 ends at the Santa Monica Pier.
They were on a tight schedule, so Rob and I drove to Santa Monica to meet them for brunch at a restaurant on the pier. It was so good to see Becky. While I don’t have any regrets about moving to California, I miss my friends! (Awful picture of me, I look like a bag lady!)
This was a great opportunity for us to play tourist. When you live some place, you always figure, “Oh, I’ll have time to do all that fun stuff later.” Then you never do. When I was visiting Long Beach (before I moved here) I resisted going on the Queen Mary because I thought it would be something fun Rob and I could do together, after we moved. Have we been there? No. But at least we did this. It was a great morning.
