Weeks two and three on the road

The last couple of weeks have been good. I finished the last of my college exams and should be getting my diploma soon. We've passed 5,500 miles and have visited Carlsbad Caverns and the Grand Canyon and are now visiting Ryan in La Jolla, San Diego. One more week to go!

[ I had no idea how big it actually was ]

[ Camping ]

[ We woke up at 5am to see the sunrise ]

[ The Hoover Dam - apparently this was the last week ever to drive across the dam. From now on, all traffic will be use the bridge in the background. ]

[ Vegas. ]

[ Oz was excited to go to the dog beach in California ]







[ Checking out the tide pools. We didn't go to Mexico, but our phones thought we did. ]



[ Group shot ]

[ Oz ]





[ San Diego ]

[ My car... only a little nicer ]

[ We woke up early this morning to go surfing before Ryan went to work. It was very windy though... we may attempt again tomorrow. ]
