We left Mike's at 5:30 AM to beat the rush-hour traffic in Seattle. We breezed with the greatest of ease through Seattle, Tacoma, and Olympia, Washington. I was amazed with our good luck. "This is an omen!" I thought to myself, as my passenger snored through most of the morning.
Bypassing Portland, Oregon, we head eastbound up the Columbia River on the Oregon side, stopping for lunch in beautiful Hood River, wind surfing capital of the world (they tell me).
My excitement runs high as I fantasize about the many new experiences that await me in my new (temporary) home in North Carolina. I'm due to arrive at the herb garden on April 18th....so we have plenty of time to enjoy our cross-country trip. I struggle to put my "future" thoughts aside so that I can enjoy and experience the present.
