3,500. That’s the number of miles we ended up traveling as we finally reached the front door of our home here in Seattle. This last day was the easiest as we only had about 160 miles from Portland. And wouldn’t you know it, the rainy city greeted us with a full day of nice sunshine!
We were a bit worried how the dogs would adjust to living on the 9th floor of a downtown condo, but staying in 6 different hotels over the last 8 nights, from the 1st to the 6th floors, prepared them, I think. They are used to elevators now and didn’t hesitate a bit, to go out, when I opened the door to our little porch area, 9 stories up.
It was a long journey for all of us, but all in all, it went well. To be honest, though, I will probably have nightmares for the foreseeable future, mostly concerning loading and unloading a vehicle over and over again. And, I never want to make 12 trips up and down 3 flights of stairs at 5am, ever, ever, again.
I hope everyone has enjoyed our trip. But, don’t turn me off now; I plan on continuing this journey as we start our new lives here. Check in from time to time and I hope to have new adventures for you, or at least a tale or two, which B says I’ve become known for. I will do my best to keep it rated below an “R”. Chow for now.
