It was tiring, but worth it! And those last 80 miles or so in L.A. traffic were, predictably, a bear and a half. A grizzly, in fact. (State animal is a grizzly bear, for those of you who don't know.)

My second night of the journey, I spent in Shamrock, Texas. Woke early and took this photo of the sunrise from my hotel window. I didn't realize until after I took the shot that the lamplight reflected an angel image.
Most of my travel pics were taken from hotel parking lots and rest areas. This was not a sightseeing trip. I've done that a number times, and while I've seen amazing sights, this trip was about getting from Point Q to Point Mugu, as it were, as quickly as possible, so I could start looking for a new place to live in the imperfect paradise that is California.

Driving out here meant I could bring a lot of yarn. Hooray! Since crocheting takes more yarn than knitting, I usually travel with a knitting project or two. This time I could indulge in both. Well, I brought my travel wheel as well, and fiber. Because heaven knows, it could be days before I find a place to buy fiber! And there's a local spinning guild, and I want to go, with wheel in tow.
Anyway, this future blanket has been 'on the hook' for some months. It gets back-burnered and rekindled regularly. The colors remind me a little of the ocean and California in general, so as I have worked on it, I have been California dreamin', and it's a perfect project for this trip.
The fact that it's a log cabin pattern is comforting, too, as I search for a place to live. Traditionally, I think a yellow center of the square is meant to be the light in the window of home. (A red center would represent the hearth.)
New home, here I come!
