Grand Coulee Dam, Surprise Visit, and Getting to Bellevue

1452 miles later, and we're safe in John's parents' house. It's been quite the trip!

I didn't manage to get up with the boys, as I had some trouble sleeping. Still, they made me a waffle, and by the time they came back from breakfast, I was moving about a little as if awake and alive. *laughs*

We got moving by 8, as we are now on Pacific time, and the boys were still on Mountain Time. It was quite the contrast in weather, too, as it was rainy and cool, only in the 60's, after cruising through high 90's and outright sunshine for most of the trip. Since we only had 300 or so miles to cover, we could take our time. The last time we drove along the Columbia, Grand Coulee Dam wasn't doing tours, but John checked and this time they were doing tours.

Sometimes I'm utterly amazed by what people can do, and what they'll do if given the chance to just do it.

Chronomorphosis and Packing

I got up as late as I as able this morning, as the bed I slept in was so comfortable I could finally really sleeeeeep. So I did, snarfed a blueberry muffin for breakfast, did a little online maintenance and then hopped into the Eurovan and headed South. All the way down to Olympia to visit chronomorphosis, and with traffic it was more than an hour down and almost two hours up, but it was well worth the effort.

He's making a lovely home for himself in the woods out of all kinds of stuff that he's found there, and I'm really impressed with the results.
