Road Trip Day 1!
Awake at 6am with a successful morning move- lots of cursing mailing our million-pound boxes all the way to Nova Scotia, dealing with carpet cleaners, and packing a super-weighed down car.
We eventually made it out of town at 1:30 and made today a short first driving day because of all the moving. We decided to stay at Josh's grandma's home in Mariposa with his sister Ashley for 2 nights to help lengthen our trip. 2 weeks is a long time to make it all the way across the country and up into Canada!
Mariposa is absolutely beautiful. The weather is warm and is making us feel like we're actually on vacation. Ashley and grandma made us an amazing meal with vegetables they grew in their own organic garden, and we've been hanging out on the patio just enjoying the scenery. It's been great to take a break from all the moving excitement and recharge for the driving ahead of us.
Since we're only about an hour outside of Yosemite, we've decided to go on an early morning hike with Ashley and Julius (poor thing has been packed solid in the car with the bike rack on top of him all day long :-D ).
I will post more photos when we get them!
