I'm a Traveling One

"For my part, I travel not to go anywhere, but to go. I travel for travel's sake. The great affair is to move."- Robert Louis Stevenson
I could so be related to this man.  From the time I was old enough to talk my mom said my middle name was "Go!"  I have always loved to travel.  I want to see it all.  I prefer traveling by car so if I see something I want to explore I can stop and check it out.  Plane travel kind of eliminates that mobility option.  I am not a fond user of our vast Interstate system.....but will use it when my time is limited.  When Kat and I went to PEI we used it to very seldom.  The majority of the trip was on US 1.  Speaking of US1.  It runs from Florida to Maine.  It is a long road and filled with hidden wonders.  From past travels I have seen the Wedding Cake House in Kennebuckport.  I have traveled A1-A, playing Jimmy Buffett music as far as I could, tasted conch fritters and key lime pie in Key West, and seen Heminway's House. I have found some of the greatest local gift shops and bookstores.  I have eaten fabulous food at places that are off the beat and path.  I have seen the World's Largest Ball of Twine - made famous in the movie Michael (with John Travolta).  Darwin, MN was where we were.  We also have seen the mighty redwoods in California....and they are breathtaking.  Been to Hannibal, MO where Mark Twain penned his most profound works.  Followed part of the Lewis and Clark Trail cross country.  I have truly seen the purple mountain magesties, a cattle drive of long horn steers, seen a real Pony Express Station, been where they filmed Dances with Wolves, seen lighthouses on the Atlantic and Pacific coasts(I still want to volunteer in one some summer), the Golden Gate Bridge, the Grand Canyon, Mankato, MI (where the Little House series took place)....and my list goes on and on.  Which place was my favorite....they all are.  Every trip brings a new favorite place to add to my bulging list of favs.  I love this great country and even though I have seen so much there is still so much to see....and I am ready to "GO!"  You just wait....tomorrow night I will return with my Project 365 pictures (yep...I have my camera with me)....and lots of stories about all the wonderful places I saw.  Tomorrow night I will have new favorite places to add....until the next time.  Hope your weekend is marvelous.

That is so awesome. How cool to have seen that ball of twine, love that movie. I was just visiting my friend Kristin-The Goat and she uses a very cool thing for her 365project.
