(Experimental Post via Ham radio - San Miguel Island - Cuyler Harbor)
We've been gone one week, and it feels like a month! Going out the Golden Gate bridge with our friends escorting us, sailing in high winds off Point Sur(all predicted, Mom's), and escaping from the fire were some of the top adrenalin producers. Keeping in touch with friends and making new ones along the way are continued highlights.
I have been balancing between the old tendencies of stocking up on supplies and going to the bare minimum of what we need. My favorite stores at home have been Trader Joes, Costco, WholeFoods, Target, and a local produce store. Friends have been offering up rides to these while we were in Morro Bay, but it really wasn't convenient. I'm learning that it's ok to buy the same ingredient at the local market, even those TJ's has the one I'm used to. New mantra "No Hoarding", and "Small is the new large" Yes, a little quirky!
