Daughter #1 wanted us to come to California for Thanksgiving. One of our nephews lives in the same town and their parents (In the Sticks and G) were planning to go there too. I don't like traveling on Thanksgiving...too many horror trips going up and down I-95 then years of schlepping across country by airplane. But we decided to make it a 9 day driving trip to take the travel pressure off.
We're driving leisurely to Paso Robles first where we will do some wine buying. Then going up to Salinas and our friends, Steve and Lady Di. Finally it's on to Lafayette for four days of Thanksgiving and family.
