So the Red Queen and I are moving back to the mainland. After 5 years here on the valley isle, the move is welcomed and despised in equal measure. On the positive side, this move allows me to once again enjoy fabulous restaurants and glorious food (prepared by someone else for a change!). On the negative side, we’re leaving one of the most naturally beautiful places on the planet. Sure, San Francisco and San Diego have their allure, but a early morning walk on an abandoned tropical beach while whales cavort not 100 yards away also has its allure).
Not that the packing and the logistical considerations kept me from posting (I’ve just not felt it lately), but now we’re down to the final days (we move on the 3rd of December). It will be nice to be near friends and family for the holidays.
