July 12th saw this young couple taking on the challenge of cycling down the
southern coast to San Fransisco, approximately 1300 km in 27 days.
We value our tradition of saying good bye with an early morning breakfast.
I'm standing out at the street....and there I see them approaching us.
She's waving like always...
He's all thumbs up and ready for this challenging trek.
This sums it up...they both love to cycle and love the adventure.
Meanwhile my mind goes back to the slogan I saw in Amsterdam!!!
Happy and eager to go....the Teachers are on their way...
but not without a blessing from parents who pray for safety everyday.
Up, up and away they go!
Travelling along the early morning roads with trucks roaring behind them.
You can catch up on her adventures at,
Meanwhile I was given the honor of hosting Drift for the last month.
Somehow he found his way into my heart.
This morning was exciting as I began to realize they were close to home.
The texting started early...and before long we made plans to meet them in Bellingham.
And of course, it was fun to greet them with a home-made meal, their favorite consisting of
steak, freshly grilled vegetables, fresh corn, potatoes, and raspberry pie.
Meanwhile back at her home, we welcomed her
with an authentic sheaf of freshly cut wheat.
She's already asking what day we will grind the wheat and make some fresh bread.
Looks like my week is planned.
Welcome Home Again!!!
