Back to the beginning.

Beth and I headed off to Monterey/Pacific Grove today.  It was overcast pretty much all day, but that is what it is usually like.  It is a neat place to start off our exploring because it was here that Beth and I met over 40 years ago!  We were both 19 years old and had just set out on our life adventures.  The little church where we got married is just a couple of blocks from this picture.  We were here twice and the second time we had an apartment near this spot.  Beth used to ride her bike along this road after work.  The spot in the middle of the picture is called “Lovers Point.”

As fate would have it one of Beth’s favorite events was happening while we were here.  A farmer’s market.  It wasn’t a huge one but there was some pretty good stuff.  We got mostly fruit and a loaf of cinnamon bread for breakfast tomorrow.  Oh, and some cookies.

Tomorrow we are traveling to Chico to visit Beth’s father and stepmom.  We are looking forward to the visit but are going from 60 degree temperatures to 104 or more.  We will get to see how we do in heat.

It was a little easier getting the pictures off the camera and phone and in to a post.  I hope to get Beth posting very soon so you can hear from her.  Please let us know if you have any ideas we could use to make the blog fun to follow!

Thanks for reading!

    How wonderful! I remember you lived above a bagel bakery with all those delicious smells. Life sure went by fast….

    I was just thinking about you today, and how it went on the last day clearing out of your house. Now that u are on the road I’m sure you feel it’s all been worth it. It will be fun living vicariously as you travel the United States. Watch out for tornados, hurricanes and other natural disasters!! That hurricane Harvey was iconic. Prayers for those Texans. Prayers for you on the road. Love, Arlene
