Those of you who are putting up with these road trip reports (on what's supposed to be a health blog) may recall we started off our cross country trip with some scenic coastal camping. Well, it gets even better!
While visiting San Diego, we noticed a new light on our dashboard, in a rather festive orange color. It seemed to be an abstract drawing of something, but we couldn't quite make out what it was. So we took our abstract art in for a professional appraisal, and got to spend the day at this lovely establishment!
Kah-ching! Kah-ching!* Such a pretty sound. And they had free peppermint candies.
By early evening we were on the road again. Heading east from San Diego there are lots and lots of excellent options when you're looking for accommodations. We carefully considered all the choices, stopped in El Centro for the night, and woke up... here!
The next day brought much excitement and lots of things to see! Mostly highways and gas stations. There was one here:
By the time we got to Phoenix**, we were really wishing we could get that damn Glenn Campbell song*** out of our heads, but we arrived safe and sound and managed to have a great time along the way. Pizza and salad and two buck Chuck taste just great in a Walmart parking lot. And, we figured if we hadn't spent a day in El Cajon waiting for our transmission to be fixed, we might have spent the night here instead!
Further adventures to come (assuming we have any adventures, and are able to get enough wireless to post pictures).
Thanks for indulging me. I'll be back to health and fitness posts soon, but not quite yet!
*There was no actual Kah-ching sound involved in our auto repair transaction; we used a credit card. But there's no way to spell the sound of hefty charges being put on a credit card.
**We were not actually going Phoenix but to Scottsdale. The Lobster wants to catch the Giants in spring training.
***I know "By the Time I Get to Phoenix" was written by someone else but I grew up to the Glenn Campbell version.
