When I rode through Anacortes, I was elated to see about 6 cruisers and a supermotard as I headed down Hwy 20 to the I-5. Did I mention that I hate the I-5? It is HORRIBLE for a rider's back! It was amazingly warm, tho I bore down hugging the bike on Hwy 20 as the crosswinds were the worst I've experienced yet. OY. The tailpack was fantastic for weighing the bike down (as I'm about a buck twenty lbs.), and it only started raining about 40 min.
I arrived safely at my sister's surprisingly thawed minus my toes & fingers (much to my parents' relief, my Mom was really worried!). I saw my niece & nephew through the window, and as I walked in the door my niece ran up, I tried to stop her, "No, I'm all wet!" and she did not care. She gave me a huge hug! At least got my jacket & helmet off before my nephew got me with his hug :) I can't express enough how much I miss my son (in Edmonton with his Dad & family), and how AWESOME it was horsing around with the kids & the dogs last night, enjoying time with my Mom & sis-in-law while my brother & Dad worked on plumbing in the kitchen (a Smith Family tradition = fixing stuff in the houses... My Dad is the real Clark Griswold ;)
We stayed up watching 'Christmas Vacation', and one of the neatest things is hearing my Dad chuckle to himself - things that amuse him, and when I watch him I know why, because I'm his daughter, and I love him all the more for it.
After the riding, the playing, and evening with the family, I was happily content and truly exhausted! Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night!
