I’m in New Jersey right now, visiting with my family, and seeing my grandmother. I’m also taking the opportunity to go to…IKEA. Yeah. For reals. The nearest IKEA to me is in Toronto. The nearest in the US is in Pittsburgh, and the second nearest US one is…in Paramus. So now I can say I’ve braved the Saturday Paramus shopping rush, and emerged victorious! The drive down was really amazing; a wonderland of fall colors, and today we went to the New Jersey State Botanical Gardens and got to enjoy a lot more of that. Really nice quick trip. Back to Rochester tomorrow!
But! Back in August 2011 I drove up to the Bay Area while Nathan had some laser time up there, and spent several days hanging with a bunch of friends, starting in the South Bay, and heading up East Bay-wards, before heading up to Shaver Lake for Danny’s birthday (which I had done on one prior occasion, and can find absolutely no photos or writeup of. Sad.)
Can’t have a lake trip without a turtle…
