Most mornings, when we walk Penny and climb Mt Miramar, we look to see how good the ocean view is – how crisp and how far can we see – Pendleton? The Coronado Islands off Mexico? One day last month, when it was exceptionally clear, we could see Catalina Island.
But this morning, the slate grey Pacific held little interest, as our gazes turned east to the rocky summits of eastern San Diego County and beyond. Today is the first day of our Winterreise – our trip to see The Beloved’s folks for Christmas.
Penny had a good long walk and I know from all the running around and prep that we've been doing that she knows something's up.
We’re shooting to be on the road today by noon. Wish us luck!
