Cora continues to surprise me with her happiness to be on the road. She doesn't seem phased by the different rooms we've been in, or the new people she meets.
We've been in San Diego for the last few days, mostly here to visit with my grandmother. I have really enjoyed my time visiting and am so happy that she has gotten the chance to meet Cora.
Nick and I lived in San Diego for three years before moving to Portland almost 5 years ago. During that time I was lucky to get to know my grandmother better. Since we lived in Canada, then Texas, and then Washington State while growing up, we never got to spend very much time with my Dad's side of the family. So I really loved having the chance to try and make up for some lost time while living down here, seeing Grandma and Aunt Louise and my cousins.
Cora was a hit at the retirement home, bringing smiles to the residents who stopped to get a peek of her shy little smiles.

Sadly, I am not really designed for the California sun. The rain and the green and the trees of the northwest are definitely home, but I do miss it down here sometimes. Even so, I'm feeling a little bit sad as we think about packing up our things to start the trip back up to Oregon tomorrow. It's sad to say goodbye.
Time flies when you're having fun.
