Do you hear that??? THAT is the call of adventure! (oops, I was wrong it wasn't adventure on the line, it was my spouse back in Ohio saying the road trip fund has been depleted!) The battery is charging for my camera, as I have decided to take a mid-winter road trip with my two boys (7 & 2) to San Diego (err- Roswell/White Sands for a daytrip)- just to break up the routine, spend some quality time and see everything there is to see between here and there! My seven year old was having a blast looking at the map and picking out places to stop along the way last night. (Im hoping he'll forget about all of that when he see's UFO's and aliens everywhere) The boys have never seen the Pacific (Im sure it will still be there when our house eventually sells back in Ohio), so tomorrow we are loading up some snacks and pointing the wagon in a westerly (southerly) direction.
I am open to any suggestions y'all might have- especially since we are trying to do it all on a shoestring budget (It's as much about the journey as it is the destination). The only thing I had in mind (in addition to seeing the ocean) was a visit to the Zoo and maybe a museum as we make our whirlwind visit. The weather looks good: Sunny/ 72°—75°. I look forward to sharing our stories with you when we blow back into town! -Tom
My thanks to you all for your help and to RGarriott for some timely suggestions for alternate destinations! Like a candle in the wind I am... :>)
