Berkeley to Boston: Day 1

Day 1 (August 15, 2011): drive from Berkeley, CA to Reno, NV

Wow… today was our first day on the road.  I honestly can’t believe we got all of our stuff into our tiny Civic, but thank goodness we did. 

Here are a few shots of our last day in San Francisco… shot from Treasure Island:




We left Berkeley around lunch time after a TON of last minute errands.  It was actually perfect timing, so we didn’t really hit any traffic going through Sacramento.  It was so exciting to drive through Tahoe because it is where I lived for a while as a kid. 



We pulled over and stopped for this stunning view of Lake Tahoe.  It is so huge.  I couldn’t fit it all in one shot, so you get two!  In case you’re counting, this was my first “pee behind a bush at an overlook” for this trip. 

Then we did some creeping on the house we lived in when I was a kid.  It has changed so much, but it was still fun to show Brendan.


We went to dinner at my Aunt Karen’s house.  It was absolutely a blast.  The kids were a little shy at first, but then we were all playing games and making silly faces.  We really had so much fun.  Chicken tacos+ice cream=Kaetlin and Brendan happiness!  They even gifted us a bag of goodies for the ride, including homemade granola bars!!! Awesome!DSCN0410


I made sure to get in a couple pics of Brendan with the sagebrush.  It’s his first trip to Reno to see my dark past.




Stay tuned for more on days 2-11.  Plus, I have a few extra posts from our last week in the bay!

    Yea! You’re on your way and doing it right! Remember to stop often, because you don’t really SEE things when you’re going past at 60+… Enjoy!
