Back, Back, Back in the U.S.A.



Sunset at Morro Rock from Morro Strand State Beach

Leaving beautiful New Zealand and flying back to the U.S. was nothing short of grueling. Auckland to Melbourne, Australia and then on to Los Angeles and further yet to Sacramento, California.  Twenty-eight hours.  We made it without a missed connection, but with little sleep and airline food that was, well, a lot like gruel!  We could however partake of the tempting aromas drifting through our economy class area from first class.  Isn't that rude?  (We couldn't use their bathrooms either...jeez...)

We are taking a few weeks off from housesitting and hanging out in lovely Morro Bay.  We're happy to be here to catch up with family and friends, recharge our batteries a bit, do our annual visits with doctors and dentists, and complete the dreaded duty of filing our income tax forms.  We promise not to post any photos of that!  

We will be sharing some stories and photos from our time here on California's spectacular Central Coast.  We'll be doing a lighthouse tour, visiting an Elephant Seal colony, and getting in some beach time.  We hope you'll enjoy it just as much as we do!  Then, in March we begin a month long house sit in Italy kicking off the four months we'll spend in Europe.  We promise you a spring and summer filled with travel adventures culminating with a house sit in Scotland. Sound good?  Well, stay tuned then!
