A Road Trip

Nothing rejuvenates creativity quite like sitting in a car for a week.  The Boyfriend, the dog, and I spent last week meandering along the Pacific coast, admiring the views (which were few)  that weren't obscured by rain and clouds (which were many).  All of these photos are my own, taken with my phone.
