Homeward Bound (Feb 25 2014)

DSC02671.JPGThere are long term residents in the camp next door. They are pretty packed in – RV up against RV – but many have done up their places with patios, tiki bars, awnings and lights. They probably come back here, year after year, flocking from Ohio, Minnesota, Ontario.

We blast out of Cattail Cove and up to Needles to have lunch with Big Dog’s high school pal, M and his wife G. Then it’s the long haul to Lancaster, our first California destination.

We are back in civilization.

I've been traveling since I was born -- the first big trip was before I was two, across the Pacific, from my native Japan to Los Angeles on a cargo ship. There have been many journeys since then, through many continents and cultures.
