My West Coast road trip has begun! Well, kind of. My travel buddy finished up her exams today and we hung around her campus in Tacoma. Tacoma is kind of like Seattle’s younger brother – smaller and quieter but up-and-coming and just as charming. We wandered around and had (delicious) burgers at Shake Shake Shake. After coming from muggy Indiana, the cool cloudy weather was not unwelcome. I also enjoyed the hills, a feature we have few of in my home of “Lay-flat,” Indiana.
On Friday, we stock the car and study our maps. Saturday, we hit the open road.
