Tales from the road, etc.

Well we are having a typical Lucy Monroe travel experience.  Driving out of our driveway, the garage door opener stops working.  It's been totally fine up to this moment, but suddenly goes kaput to begin our trip with a story to tell our friends.  We headed south to Crater Lake National Park and guess who were our fellow freeway guests?  That's right...a motor cycle gang complete with leather jackets with the skull and crossbones insignia and "choppers" specially designed to ride low and sound mean.  But hey, they were obviously nature lovers too.  The lake was absolutely gorgeous, as were all the lakes along the highway getting there.  The trip to the rim was hair raising for someone nervous about heights.  Yep, that would be me...telling the kids to be very quiet, "Daddy has to concentrate!" and telling Daddy to, "Pay attention!"  LOL  I'd love to say I'm kidding and I wasn't that bad, but I was.  My palms were sweaty and my heart was beating a mile a minute by the time we reached the lookout area we'd planned to stop at.
And just quick, for vampire lovers...there's a new series from Dorchester and it's being kicked off by Liz Maverick.  Her story, Crimson City sounds very intense and just a little scary.  I know that's the perfect combination for a lot of you, so I really wanted to share about it.  Read an excerpt here.
Well, we're back on the road today...going to see the California Redwoods...then it's Reno and RWA National.  I'll post if I get a chance!

Lucy, you crack me up! Hope the rest of your trip is uneventful, and you're safe and sound and in one piece when we meet up in a couple of days!

Love to the family!

LOL Kati...the rest of the trip was wonderful! I've got so much I want to post on my blog, that I'm not sure where to start. Look for something tomorrow. :)
