If you’ve been following Wing’s World for a while, you know that The Mate and I take a 6 to 7-week pilgrimage this time of year, from our little island in Washington’s Salish Sea, all the way across the country, back to our former lives (and my folks, and Tarheel basketball) in North Carolina.
If you’re new to this blog–well, now you know. Welcome! This is the only time Wing’s World morphs into a travel blog; please join me!
That is, if we ever get going. When driving across the country in February and March, weather is always in charge of your route. Every year we’ve diverted around something. But we’ve never found ourselves stopped in our own driveway! We were planning to leave on February 12, but now it’s snowing like crazy, so that is NOT gonna happen.
I’m pretty much packed. Cleaned out the fridge. Nothing to do but go for a walk!
You know what, though? This extraneous walk gave me exactly what I needed: the reassurance that, no matter where we go, there is no more special place than where we already live.
The rest of y’all? See you on the road…whenever we get there!
I haven’t ventured down the island to get to Iceberg Point, so thanks for the photos – beautiful! Wishing you good travels – and good stories from the road.
Thanks, Iris! See you in April!
Wow!! Crazy beautiful snow on Lopez! Sheila and Bruce sent us photos of their backyard—fun to see your photos, too. Happy travels!
Thanks, Laurel! We’re already following in your tire tracks from past roaming, as you’ll see in the next couple of posts.
