All the Way to Harrisburg PA.

Our first days travel began in Hyannis.  We had a fine breakfast of coffee and finger sandwiches that Elin and Joyce made for our trip.  It gave us pause to reflect on the folks that came down to the boat to see us off the day before.  We are very lucky people to be sure,, it's a memory that we'll relive often.  Thank you Elin, Joyce, Kate, David, Susan, Eve, Scott, and Michele. Thank you to everyone that sent us off with such fine farewell parties.  We'll miss you all more than we can measure at present but I'm sure we'll feel it for the rest of our lives.

Today's ride was uneventful.  Sarah and Deb Miller in Sarah's car with our two cats Lily and Canada.  Bob and I in mine with Swegen in the back. The cats are slowly getting used to being in the car, Swegen has always loved the road.  All is well, enough.

We made it to the Ramada Inn is Harrisburg, PA by about 5.  Fed the animals, walked the dog and then off to dinner and drinks.  We found a Mexican restaurant called El Rodeo, the food was ok and the drinks were restorative.We had originally picked an Italian Restaurant but stopped short of entering when Bob noticed that it was a BYOB establishment so we took it on the heel and toe and went to plan b.  Thankful for our smart phones ability to help us out.  

We finished the day planning our next leg of the journey and have decided to shoot for Ohio.  We;ll be staying in a motel 6 and they've promised to leave a light on for us. It wont be long before we're in our new home and the excitement builds by the hour

There's a party in the next room, it's been going strong all night long, I've been humming the Bruce Cockburn song "If I had a rocket launcher" in my head while counting sheep all night.  The sleep has been fitful and tomorrow I may write a poem to commemorate the douche bags bags down the hall.

We love you all our peeps
