I'm so grateful for my life & amazing family & our dear friends.

It's rather dark... but, we're enjoying every moment of our time here.

Not as dark... interesting weather we're having...

A view from beach looking up at the Surf beach (Lompoc, Ca) Amtrak station.

It would be interesting to ride the train... something to think about.

Time to stop and think where to next...
I love family Road trips!
