Road Trip – Going Home


Oola and I had more adventures.  There was the trip to Galveston with Bob and Kelly Sennhauser.  We saw lots of hurricane Ike destruction, and lots of wet phoenixes rising from the flood.  We visited Maggie, also a Chicago Art Institute graduate, whose beautiful house had been ankle deep in water, though it sits plenty high off the ground.

We walked along the Gulf of Mexico, trying to see Columbia.  Not so good, but we get a couple of good human site-ings.

Good Byes to my gracious hosts. Bob got into his car to lead me out to the correct freeway and the correct direction. They know which way the wind blows!

There were more adventures, but best to close this blog are a few pictures of the trip home.

We made good use of rest stops.
But in the Southwest, if you want toilet seat covers, bring your own.

And so the blue Prius, with Mom’s memorial Chihuahua in the back window, made its happy way home. Great car, great friends and family, great time. Now to sleep and then to get ready for a new semester of Web students.
