Getting ready to head to the coast

Packing and getting set to head out for maybe 14 days. Maya won't let me out of her sight. She and I are going to head off to Seattle on Saturday and then to the coast of Washington and down into Oregon. As I type this there are warnings of huge storms coming onto the coast over the weekend...oh good..I love a good coastal storm! If it all goes according to plan I'll get down to Brookings and then into a California just a bit, till I can turn east, heading for the Sheldon Wildlife Refuge.


As of now...NOAA is running weather warnings for the coast...so, I shall just take my time gettin there.

Drove straight thru to Seattle 7.5 hours..not something I really enjoyed but wanted to beat a storm..that failed to show. Oh well...Monday I will head off to the coast and hopefully the storms will have cleared off and I can just meander from one photo op/oyster bar, to another.
