Hello everyone. I’m back from my brief blogging hiatus. I was on vacation, and it wouldn’t have been a vacation if I brought the laptop, so I left it.
About a month ago I wrote a blog entry called “Support American Jobs, Vacation in the U.S.A.” Boy am I glad a decided to take that advice. I just got back from the most amazing road trip down the coast of California, and I had an absolute blast.
We started our trip in San Francisco and ended in San Diego. All I can say is WOW! If you haven’t seen the California coast you really need to think about getting out there and seeing it. The places we saw were breathtaking. From redwood forests to sandy beaches, the California coast has so much to offer.
We flew into San Francisco and were picked up by our friends in a blue Mustang convertible. I was glad we were able to get an American-made rental. And let’s face it, if you’re going to be driving the California coast, it should be in a convertible.
We spent a couple days in San Fran, then made our way down the coast. We took the Pacific Coast Highway (PCH) down through Half Moon Bay, Santa Cruz, Monterey, Carmel, and all the way to San Luis Obispo. We must have stopped ten times on that leg of the trip, usually just to spend a few minutes a on a beautiful beach we knew we might never see again.
views on this portion of our trip were magnificent. I felt like I was Ansel Adams taking pictures of the mountains and scenery.
Finally, we made it down through Orange County and down to San Diego. We ended our trip with a nice day at Mission Beach in San Diego, which reminded me a lot of Miami Beach (my hometown beach).
The trip was huge success. I got to see so many things and places I had never seen before, and everyone had a great time. I’m looking forward to getting back out west again soon.
But it’s also good to back home in Arlington, VA as well, and sleeping in my own bed at night.
Until next time, here’s to doing what we can to support our country by buying American.
