I have packed a small picnic basket with things we will need when we leave Portland, Oregon, and head north. I like to have snacks on the road and my water bottle. I like to be prepared.
Also in my basket I have our bicycle backpack and my bicycle gloves and shorts. I need to find out if I will need to bring my bike helmet. There are field guides too. Ones I will not need until I reach Canada.
All of this I am shipping to my daughter. That way I have the car things without having to mess with them at the airport. I will ship it home before I leave Victoria. I think there will be room for a couple of treasures too, in case I find something I want for the home gardens.
Something big enough to hold regular purse necessities and a few lens and filters for the camera, a travel journal and a few field guides and binoculars. My water bottle also will fit nicely.
The brown leather bag should hold up well. It set my color scheme for our 35th Anniversary Trip.
I am making lists. This is a three legged journey. We stay with our daughter, we road trip to Olympic National Park , we lodge in Victoria, British Columbia for a week. We fly, drive, bicycle and boat.
Our house sitter is arranged. I have the camera outfitted. Today I outfitted me.
