I Spent a Day in Heaven!

I planned on seeing my cousin, but I didn’t know ahead of time how things were going to work out while I was in LA, so we didn’t have it all planned out.  I called one day and she said, “Can you come today?”  So I did.  It was a 5-6 hour drive to San Jose and when I pulled into her driveway, I saw a bobcat.  A little bit of a surprise, but I figured the cat was more afraid of me than I was of it.  I even thought I may have been seeing things since it was dark and I had just driven a pretty long way.  But, they live on the edge of an area that is full of wildlife.  I got to see quite a few deer in the next couple days.

I stayed with her 2 nights and it was very nice to connect after not seeing each other for so long.  I look forward to spending more time with her in the future. 

The day I left was the day that I spent in heaven and I have a picture to prove it!

I drove the Pacific Coastal Highway back to Los Angeles from Santa Cruz.  It was absolutely beautiful.  This trip was full of breathtaking scenery!  I thought that Colorado, Utah and Arizona had so much of it, but I definitely vote the Coastal Highway as my favorite drive of the entire trip!  I stopped frequently, like every 100 feet, to take pictures.  That might be a slight exaggeration, but not a huge one.  There was a thick fog that day.  Even at 2:00 in the afternoon. 

I am never up early enough back east to get pictures of fog.  The entire day had a covering of fog.  There were only a few spots that I was able to see the ocean that day and the only reason I was glad I didn’t know how high above the ocean that I really was is because of how nauseous I got looking down into the Grand Canyon.  I never had that experience with heights before.  I won’t admit that it could be age.

If I wasn’t driving alone, I would have pulled over at sunset and slept under the stars and drove again in the morning.  But, I had to be concerned about safety since everybody else was worried about me.  I hated having to miss scenic views driving in the dark.  I am looking forward to doing this again!
