I love road trips. I dream of packing everything I own into a Winnebego or scamp or even a VW bus and driving as far as the old engine will take me, stopping at every wacky motel and roadside attraction along the way. I have the kind of friends who really get that. We don’t have a cutesy camper, but we improvised last week and loaded a car with our Pillow Pets and cameras and hit the road south.
Palm Springs was our ultimate destination. But on this first day on the open road, Bakersfield, antiquing and thrifting were the goal.
Here are a few shots from the first fun day on the road. Enjoy!
We had sandwiches at a historical little tea house in Clovis, too:
We stayed in Bakersfield, where we soaked in the hotel’s hot tub for a short while and fell asleep excited knowing this was only the beginning of a great vacation.
