BIG SUR, AGAIN
AFTER 36 YEARSIn March of 76 Lana and I joined Barb and Dave for a Bicentennial drive across America.
We loaded their VW Van, bid a farewell to our daughter who was being doted over by grandmothers and aunts and headed west.
Barb uncovered my daily journal from that trip and this week we have recounted memories. A highlight of that epic journey was a camping trip to Big Sur's Lime Kiln. This was long before it was a state park. We had been there previously and had been captured by it. In March of 76, Barb and Dave made their first and last visit, until this week.
What a great joy it was to be there again with Barb and Dave. We had much to celebrate, most notably Barb's victory over ovarian cancer.
Frequent readers of this blog will recall several postings from Big Sur and especially Lime Kilns. It is one of our favorite places on the planet.
There is a primeval peace and a natural tranquility which breathes from the rushing stream and sun light filtered through towering redwoods.
I've posted about the fire which burned through the forest
and the natural recovery which occurred, as it has for as long as time.
Have a great weekend. Tell good friends you love them.
See you down the trail.
