On Tuesday of last week, I left for thei northern climes of the Monterey Peninsula. I was overdue (by 3 months) for my annual physical…again…
I got a place to camp in my new Sprinter in town. Wonderful place.
And I pulled in on Tuesday for my Wednesday appointment. This was my view out the front window. Better yet, the host or ranger was an ex of a close friend, and he was super helpful to me. I made my appointment, had to go back on Thursday for labs, and other clinics and stayed another night so I could met with some of my long time friends, Cheryl Harris, Vilia Kakis Giles, and Rose Welch for lunch on Thursday. Even Elyse stopped by. Wonderful lunch. Then Friday was the annual Planned Parenthood Rowe v. Wade luncheon and I had a ticket.
Friday morning, I checked the weather, and it was deteriorating. Rock Knocker called and said I better get home. I sent emails, apologizing for canceling my attendance at the luncheon, and did a quick grocery shopping, gas, and headed south.,
That afternoon, I got through the northern proposed closure before it happened, and headed up Plaskett. I could not get through the clay pit of the “S” turns. I tried twice, but got stuck, so had to back down in clay, slipping and sliding for quite a ways. Finally was able to get down to the highway again around 3:30 pm.
I thought of heading up Naci to SCR Rd and home the back way, but there wasn’t time before dark, and Mud Creek was going to close at 5, so I made the spontaneous decision to go south, where there was cell service, and thus internet, and where I had friends.
I went south…(to be continued tomorrow – one each day this week)
