Day 42 - The End

I woke up with a start in what I thought was the middle of the night, and realized that it had just been a dream……….  I dreamt that I was surrounded by a colony of sea lions, barking and barking and barking and barking……………

Then I realized it was time to get up and prepare for the farewell breakfast……………..

What?  Wait! Whoa!  Can’t be! 

It’s true.  It’s over.  Our 42 day Adventure has come to an end. 

This morning we all gathered for the last time on this trip to say goodbye for now to our old and new traveling companions.  The staff put on a good spread as usual, and none of us are shy around food.  So it was a good breakfast. 

Spence, Lula, Sandy, Gerald, Rae Anne.  Lots of hugs, invitations to visit, fond farewells...

Hex, Dorris, Susanne, David, Joe and Ted.  Chatting and saying goodbyes.

more and more gather as the morning

After a while, the crowd dwindled, and RV's began to peel off left and right. 

Goodbye to our good friends and travel companions, wherever you go next.

It has been a great pleasure to travel with all of you.  We have said more than once how much fun this trip was.  How much we laughed and enjoyed ourselves.  As staff we truly appreciate a group like this.  

We saw a lot of the beauty and majesty of what Oregon and California have to offer.  We were snowed on in the Sequoias, locked out of Yosemite, tasted wine, beer, cheese, jelly belly’s, saw magnificent coastlines and visited places we have only seen in history books; and all this with wonderful companions.

On behalf of Hex, Sandy, Spence and Madi, as well as Ron and Juanita Kohn, and Tina Poole we want to thank you all for joining us on this adventure.  Thank you for traveling with Adventure Caravans.  We hope you will choose to join us again.
