Well, it's 7:08 a.m. Eastern time as I write this on my home computer in my own home. We had a whirlwind 11 days of fun and laughs and I'd do it again if I could.
Here's what I would tell people about the trip in as few words as possible.
Diamond Lake - friendly people
Crater Lake - scenic beauty
Eureka - majestic trees
Oakland - funderful suburbia (okay, I borrowed that phrase from a Paramount cartoon)
San Francisco - bustling town, more like New York than Los Angeles
It was also a time for reaffirming old friendships and also a time for cementing new familial relations.
Now, all that's left to do is to pick up the dog and the cat and everything will be back to normal.
And tomorrow it's back to school for me! So it really is over.
