After two very long days we’ve made it to my parents’ house on Bainbridge Island, WA.  I won’t say much about yesterday except that it involved shots, cleaning and saying goodbye to Daisy.  Not my favorite.

We managed to leave the Bay Area at around 3:30 p.m. after stopping at Barefoot Coffee for a little caffeine fix.  After a four hour or so drive we made it to Anderson, CA which is just south of Redding, CA.  Justin found us a great deal on a hotel and it turned out to be a really nice place.  If you’re ever driving through we recommend it highly.  It was the Gaia Shasta Hotel.

They also had a yummy all-you-can-eat breakfast (I seem to be getting a lot of those lately!) for $3.50 a person.

Yummy Breakfast!

11 hours, a double rainbow, and a rainbow that appeared to end in our car later we arrived safe and sound on Bainbridge Island.  Now we have a few days to relax and see family (Justin’s parents are arriving shortly!!!  This is so GREAT!!!) and then we head to New Zealand on Saturday.

It feels really, really good to get this trip on the road!

I can’t believe how quickly time is going and how close we are to heading out on this trip.  One month from now we’ll be heading off around the world!!!

This afternoon we’re heading back to the travel clinic for yet another vaccination – Japanese Encephalitis.  This is actually fairly last minute as we need to have a booster shot 28 days after this first shot.  So we’ll have to go back to the travel clinic right before we head out on the trip.
