Sunrise over the Strait of Juan de Fuca and the Ediz Hook, Port Angeles, WA

There's been a change of plans. I won't be driving to Texas this time, but will fly, instead. Nevertheless, my comments & responses here on PB will, most likely, be spotty, at best, for a good while. I'll chime in as much as possible during my journey, but I won't be able to participate as usual, so please forgive my tardiness. Have a wonderful Summer!

Gravel path leading down to the water's edge, on the Ediz Hook. Big rocks and pieces of driftwood, like these, are scattered all along the Hook...The big rocks protect the Hook from the pounding of the waves...

What a nice compliment, Sis!!!

I was going to drive to Colorado & Texas to see my Sister & my kids, but plans changed.
Now the plan is to fly to Dallas to see the kids, buy a new car there to drive back to Washington, stopping in Colorado to see my Sis, on the way back home...Total time away from home, probably ~ a month....so I may be pretty "spotty" with my PB participation. I'll chime in, when possible!

Cheers!

ps...thanks for saving some of the images, as well!

I'm guessing you have driven it many times before. Must be quite a trip. Whereabouts in Texas are you heading? I had to go to Houston a few times when I was working but that's the only place in Texas I have seen.

My kids live in the Dallas/Ft Worth Metroplex, in a Suburb called Keller. It's about 2200 miles, one way, so I get my road trip craving satisfied for a few months....anyway......
I grew up in San Antonio,TX, which is a beautiful city but just too darn hot for too many months out of each year, that's why I retired in Washington State, west of the Cascade Mountains, on the Olympic Peninsula. Port Angeles, WA, to be specific. I don't even have an air conditioner!!!! Hallelujah!!!

I know what you mean about the heat. Last time I was in Houston they were in the middle of a heatwave and it was 44c, that's about 110F.... way to hot to be in a city.

There's been a change of plans. I won't be driving to Texas this time, but will fly, instead. Nevertheless, my comments & responses here on PB will, most likely, be spotty, at best, for a good while.

ps...There has been a change of plans, I'm not driving, after all. I'll fly to Texas on July 5th and then drive a car back home in August. I'll still be pretty "spotty", as far as PB participation goes, but I'll try to post when I can, during my trip. Have fun this Summer!
