Okay, so this is a gorgeous route along the ocean…absolutely spectacular in places. We went north of Malibu but promised ourselves we’ll be back to go further north next time. There’s something about waves crashing against rocks that takes my breath away. And lucky me, I wasn’t driving so I got to ooooh and ahhh all I wanted while Jerry sneaked quick looks except when we pulled over to take a really good look.
We left the highway and took a scary canyon road inland to visit Jane and Joe Lynch. Jane is Deb George’s sister. Deb is a good friend from Center School in Longmeadow, Massachusetts. Were your ears burning, Deb? We were talking about you.
The Lynches were so wonderful. They made us feel so welcome and so at home. Some people are just so easy to be with, aren’t they? It was a perfect afternoon.
The trip BACK to the PCH was a lot easier. Joe sent us west on a much wider, less meandering road than the one we took to their house. The one TO the house was a bit like the Road to Hana in Maui except that it was at least two lanes. And there were stunning views but I still was really happy to go back an easier way.
Tomorrow? Not sure…probably a couple museums we haven’t seen. I’d like to ride the ferris wheel on Santa Monica pier…not sure if that’s going to happen or not. It’s supposed to be the only ferris wheel out in the ocean in the country. We’ll see if it fits into our plans as the day progresses.
