Reuniting with Sam

As we got nearer to Sam, Michelle's excitment became obvious. Eventually, it wasn't worth stopping anywhere else as Michelle was elsewhere mentally. So at long last, Michelle and Sam were reunited.

Sam, her husband Beau, and their daughter Josie, live in the most amazing place ever. Sam met us in town and lead us through vineyard covered green hills out to an idyllic farmhouse surrounded in all directions by pasture. Long green grass blows in the wind whilst a swing hangs from an oak in the front yard.

On our second day, Sam gave us a tour of the coast. We wandered through tide pools stepping on squishy anemones, ate clam chowder and fish tacos on the beach, and admired the zebras grazing in the foothills of the Hearst Castle. Beauty abounds.
