It's been awhile...but we are finally back on the road again! Yea! Don't get me wrong, I'm glad we bought a new home, but I'm just not ready to quit traveling...and I was really getting antsy to get back in the passenger seat again!
This will be a short trip for us...only a little over 3 months. We have a flight to Maui in late October that we need to be back in Arizona for, and we got such a late start (because of my broken tooth and work on the rig)...but, some travel is better than no travel!
Our first leg is to my son's in Texas, partly to get some love'n and partly to drop off a bunch of "stuff" that I unpacked as we moved in (yea). We will spend the 4th of July with him and his family, visit a bit then move on...into Louisiana, then north where hopefully it will be a bit cooler. We will let the weather be our guide this trip. We really don't have much of an agenda with such a short amount of time. I'd like to round out the trip in Washington, to visit with my family there, so that kind of makes an odd circle, so to speak. We shall see. We have friends from Hawaii who are also on a journey through some of the western states during this time, so we shall see if our paths can cross each other...it would be wonderful if they could...one never knows...
We did manage to break away from all the unpacking for a few days to Sedona before we left. We'd been there before, but it had been a few years, and we really needed a break. It was about 10-15 degrees cooler too, which was nice. We took advantage of our time-share and stayed there and swam in the pool, had a massage, ate out, read a book, layed around and relaxed. It was great. The area's red rocks are just so lovely, really peaceful. I love walking through Tlaquepaque Plaza, it's such a picturesque place, even if you don't want to buy a thing!
Anyway, I'm looking forward to new adventures, and even re-seeing places we've been before...bring it on, bring it all on, I'm ready world, here we come! Yahoo!
...on the road to Texas, Marie
