Tuesday, March 16...we get up and get ready to make the three
and a half hour drive to my mom's house in California. The sun
is out, it is warm, oh yes, we are excited.
My perfect brother in law makes us a great breakfast, then I go
out and fill up the tank. The Daughter stocks up on essentials...
Skittles, chips, and Gatorade.
We logically decide that three hours on the freeway with the
wind blowing in our hair may be too much fun for us to handle,
so we wisely opt to start out with the top up. Perhaps later,
when we are approaching our destination, we can stop and put
down the top.
There are only three of us...myself, my sister, and The
Daughter. And we each have a suitcase, and the few extra bags
of stuff that females must carry with them. Recall the trunk is
really too small for anything except a few bags. Three
suitcases must go into the back seat...and so must The Daughter.
She is not terribly excited about spending three and half hours
folded up like a pretzel, but she did want the convertible...
Speaking for myself, with the top up, there is not much
visibility, since the windows are pretty small, but at least I
have leg room.
The nearest In-N-Out we encountered did not come up until we
are only minutes from my mom's house, so we have pretty much
made the drive with the top up the whole way. Since it was a
warm day, that is odd, because we had thought we were going to
enjoy the drive with the top down part of the way.
But it is great re-visiting my Double-Double with cheese!
We are enjoying the convertible a little less than we had planned,
but we still took down the top so we can all look cool when we
pull into the driveway at my mom's house. Enjoy it while you can,
because when we arrived, we put the top back up and there it
stayed for the rest of the week!
I promise better pictures of California next...
Peace be with you.
