Road Trip Dining
Don and I love the dining adventures when we travel. Roadside diners and small town cafes... Not this trip.
Our Pandemic Road Trip has not been about the journey. The goal is to meet up with our kids. That means we cut down on as many people encounters as possible. That means lots of picnics. Don printed out a list of all the rest stops on our route, from Texas to Oregon.
We wore our masks when we walked by people in the parking lot. I sprayed down the table before laying the cloth. Then of course I snapped a timer pic, to capture the fine memory... before mask removal.
Hot Stop in Arizona
In August, the weather is hot!
We had a few very quick picnics! It was 108 degrees under this shady shelter.
We saw this fine place in California! Great sign, Tudor building and a windmill!
Ordinarily, Don and I would gasp and slam on the brakes for a place like this! An iconic Pea Soup restaurant! It was even open for business! But we aren't taking risks. I put it on the list for post pandemic adventures.
Date Shake Stop!
We had only one treat on our drive to Sacramento! It was another iconic place from the twenties.
Don and I remember indulging in date shakes 4 decades ago, when when we lived in Southern California. Sheilds was open and it even had curb side delivery!
We had a sweet, refreshing, drink-dining adventure after all.
I started this complaining list/blog, in May 2016. I posted 200 gripes about my breast cancer and then I was done.
On March 13, 2020, I started venting all over again, when another disease (starting with a C) interfered with my life. Only this time, it was affecting more than me. I ranted for a year, until I got my vaccine in March 2021.
Coronary Artery Disease was the reason I restarted this blog on September 26, 2021. This time it was Don who was dealing with a worry that started with the letter "C".
Coronavirus and Cancer, Coronary Artery Disease! All are evil, but none can totally get me down... if I vent! I usually end up feeling a little more positive at the end of each post!
