Traffic & tulips

David got a sudden bee in his bonnet to go up to the Skagit Valley and see the tulips around 12:30pm today.  It was the second time this year that we had sunshine and temps in the mid 60s so I jumped (read ‘got thrown’) in the car and off we went.

Two things of note – we were not the only people to have thought of this so there was  a lot of traffic and 4 hours later when we got home again I had never actually gotten out of the car šŸ¤£ My parents will not be shocked by this because they have gone places with David before.  Most  notably when we lived in Abilene, Tx and they had come to visit from England and we took them to Dallas. A 3 1/2 hour drive each way and they got to drive past the site of JFK’s assassination, the memorial , Southfork Ranch and of course the Immigration Building where I had spent many happy hours but David never actually stopped the car šŸ˜‚ Fortunately the Skagit Valley isn’t quite that far away and the tulips were very pretty but you get the gist šŸ˜‰

About girlonahandcycle

Natural Brit/Naturalized American wife, mom, grandma and all around old broad still happily ignoring my MS (since 1985 - ha!). Every time it slows me down I find a way to speed back up which explains my very cool Tilite wheelchair and Top End handcycle ..........also my ripped arms ; ) Don't get back to the homeland or to other cool places quite as easily or often as I'd like anymore so theoretically my rambling here keeps me a little more connected to far away friends and family.
