Car Stuff





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.

Dear Cadence,
I have a Penguin umbrella too!
Keeping you in my blessings.
Find a flower to smell and a bird to say, "Hello" to.

Dear Sprite,
I am slow but very sure!
I prepare for a trip and once I leave I let go and just enjoy!
I do like the planning and the preperations, builds excitement.
We should have a fun time.
I learned yesterday the B&B has wireless internet so the laptop will work and I will be able to post from Victoria!
Yeah.

Sherry - what a wonderful idea to ship some items ahead of time. I look forward to your vacation posts, and seeing some beautiful photos. (I'm a bit envious) ;o)

Hi Mary C,
My daughter thought of it!
We will be on the road a few days and in Victoria we plan on bicycling. There are some little items that make road trips and bike outings more enjoyable. I do not have to have them but this way I can and it is so easy.
I like easy and comfortable!
Traveling can be fun if I give myself plenty of time and plan ahead.
I hope I do get some great photos too!
Sherry
