traveling across the west coast really makes you appreciate how lucky we are to live in Seattle. The air in California is terrible - they call it "the marine layer" - aka smog. Blah! Not that we don't have any up here - but at least it doesn't discolor the view that much!
I got some excellent fun rides in while in Santa Barbara/ Ventura area. I think I balanced it enough compared to my calorie intake - which was quite high from eatting out at every meal. I drove up from Brownsville this morning - and am awaiting Ryan to get home so I can jump his bones. :O)
