Day 5: Hanford, CA to Half Moon Bay, CA
We woke to a homemade breakfast and promises of going see the jets. Nothing beats that.
And see the jets we did. No one was flying that day, so no take offs or landings, but we were able to see the jets up close.
And Uncle Matt did a great job of explaining what he does to the boys. They were enthralled, and so was I.
We also got to see all Uncle Matt's gear. Pretty cool.
It was the perfect visit. So grateful to Matt and Elaine for all they do for our country and I'm so glad the boys were able to get this up close view.
We made it on our way with the only interesting part of the drive being the crazy reckless 18-wheeler driver that we were behind. She was so scary, wildly serving, running oncoming traffic off the road. We ended up having to call the police. And let it be known the California Highway Patrol doesn't play. She was pulled over by 4 officers.
We made it to Half Moon Bay by late afternoon. We met some friends for dinner at Sam's Chowder House and it was wonderful. They were in town for the daunting task of house hunting in The Bay Area and I think we all enjoyed the chance to relax. We headed back to the house and began the settling in for the next two months.
