I have traveled this road before. I am not sure how many times I have been up and down the west coast but it is one of my favorite trips. Each time this ground is covered and traveled on, something new happens. Sounds kind of illogical, how can the same path traveled multiple times yield different results every time? Do I look like I know? No. Yet, I can never turn down an opportunity to travel because it will be a new adventure, so it’s safe to say, you cannot really go to the same place twice, so don’t be afraid to do a little re-traveling, you’ll never know what new things will be discovered.
There is something unique about the west coast of America, it is broad- misty in the north, dry in the middle and balmy….almost tropical in the south. All of this in one extended road trip can lead to a variety of thoughts like where your ideal climate is and how climates mold the people that live in them. For example, the artsy introverts of the more misty north are vastly different from the flamboyant blissful smiles of So-Cal. Point: as geography and weather changes so will the people you encounter- guaranteed. So far I have gone from Hood Canal in Washington to a quiet suburb with broad meadows in Oregon and tomorrow’s destination is San Francisco, as you know… my favorite. Oh and by the way, Hood Canal, what’s up with the geoduck obsession?
