This is me, my brother, stepmom and sister.  We had just reached the California border on our bicycle trip from Seattle to San Francisco.  I was fourteen years old the summer of 1979.

We followed Highway 101 down the coast of Oregon and that was when I fell in deep, irreversible love with the ocean.

    While I never saw this photo before, I love it!

    And I am still amazed that you all did that. It took a lot of planning – I’m only able to organize a trip out to the car to go get gas – or to take garbage out to the bins provided for garbage.

    You did a good thing – sticking together and making memories.
