Today we need to get to Big Sur, or the surrounding area. We have an appointment the next morning with our wedding caterer at the wedding house.
More freeway and rain. It wouldn't bee so bad, but when your van has a top speed of 70, and there is a 20mph driving headwind, that drops your speed to 50. UGH.

We'd just picked up a pastry for lunch and I tore a bit off and the squirrel loved it.
