Back toward home :*(

Alas, we had to come home today.
We stretched out the Sea Ranch experience as long as we could without feeling really bad for Shadow, who had been alone for 3 days). We had the complimentary breakfast at the hotel restaurant (An assorted fruit plate drizzled with honey, a ramekin with toasty coconut bread (I don't even like coconut, and this was great), and the main course: big, fluffy pancakes topped with strawberries and real whipped cream, and a side of thick bacon! (I told Jesse I would probably faint if someone told me how many calories that breakfast contained.) What a great way to start the day.
Afterward we packed up and checked out, then took a hike down in front of the hotel to the cliffs.
We headed back toward home, and the drive was relatively uneventful.
Shadow was ecstatic to greet us when we arrived at the apartment - we could hear him meowing from inside the door before we even unlocked it! He purred and rubbed and nuzzled and aqua-catted (when he kneads his paws in mid air it looks like he's swimming, so we call it "aqua-cat") for a good portion of an hour after we got home. I immediately started uploading our pictures, and fixing some of them that were too dark.
It's good to be home, but Jesse and I both agree - we wish we were back at Sea Ranch, in that wonderful bed, looking out the window at the incredible view. :)
