River Bound

I made it! I woke up at 6:30am and hit the road by 7. I ended up making good time and made it to Kent Narrows by 10:20, which means I sped- oops! My Dad met me at Harris's and we walked along the piers for a while and fed ducks, waiting for Harris's to open. we had a nice lunch and caught up.

It feels like a weight has been lifted off my shoulders, I don't know if it's my Dad's presence, his perspective, or the fact that i'm not in Richmond, but either way- I feel relaxed!

Right now my Dad is writing his lesson plan for his class tonight (of which i get to sit in on, this should be interesting). I just put in a load of laundry, cleaned out my car and attempted to Goo-Gone some of the sticker residue from the trunk of my car.

I will take some pictures of this place, because I always forget what it feels like once I leave. The houses haven't gotten a fresh coat of paint in over 50 years, each street ends in either water or corn fields, the town has only one traffic light, and there were easily 4 old dudes out in there straw hats mowing the lawn.

Pretty fantastic.

You certainly picked a perfect day for a long drive. I was driving downtown today and the weather was just right and I felt like I never wanted to stop driving. I'm definitely jealous--I'm overdue for a trip of some sort :)
