Comments for The Long Drive Home
We're home after a lovely Thanksgiving with Ian's family. Harriet had a lovely time exploring their home and has developed a fast-paced bear crawl. Tomorrow it is back to work for me but I am grateful for the week off.
I'll post more about our time down in South Pasadena in the next few days. It's late tonight and I want to get to work on Tangent tonight before bed.
The drive home today was long but not as bad as some of our trips. We left at nine thirty and arrived home at four thirty. We hit pockets of slow traffic (even stopping dead for about fifteen minutes at one point) and saw three accidents.
We only made a few stops, once for gas, once for lunch and once to swap spots driving. Ian had done most of the drive but finally needed me to take over at West Panoche Road. While we were stretching our legs at Panoche, I stopped to take a panorama of the cotton field in front of us.
