I have been hastily slapping together plans to travel cross country, so it’s been a very busy week. I am SO excited and exceptionally grateful that I will get the opportunity to visit two places I am currently writing about. One is in the Midwest and the other is on the West Coast. I was initially planning to leave all writing behind, but now I’m so charged up I wouldn’t dream of it!
I bought a few things for the trip: a 2-person tent, sleeping pads, a headlamp (Walt lost his), and a waterproof bag. The last time we went family camping, rain turned our cheap tent into a waterbed, so being watertight was a biggie. I have some adventures planned, but they are weather dependent so no sense going into that now.
Poor Charlotte was a sorry sight at Mystic Aquarium. She was hit by a propeller and now she spends most of her day on her head (kinda like me last week!). It was sad to see a turtle with bubble-butt.
