After Whitney left on Wednesday night, the end of the adventures with Chris and Joe would follow shortly.
Wednesday night we had a celebration with friends at my house which turned into a slumber party.
Thursday we spent most of the day at the beach, and turned comical shades of red.
Then we had In-N-Out for dinner.
After In-N-Out we tried to chase the sunset… Here’s why…There may have been a moment in my life, long ago, when I forgot that the sun set everywhere, and not just over the ocean in California. It just feels so right to see it sink into the ocean. I understand, that it is not literally falling into the ocean, but I wanted to show them how beautiful it is and how the beauty may cause one to forget that it sets everywhere else.
Another important topic of discussion: saying “the” before a freeway name. Ex. “The 5” or “The 405.”
Apparently, in other states you just say: “I’m getting on 65” or “I-65” not “the 65”. In California, we say “the” with our freeway names. Maybe because it makes us sound important, I’m not sure, but it is the norm. This has been a lively debate over the past week. Here is a clip from 30 Rock to add to the discussion.
Now on to Friday the 13th. We had our last breakfast, returned an amp, and headed to the airport. There I dropped off Chris and Joe. It was really sad because not only will they be far away, but tour is over, CMC is over, and I don’t know where life will take me next, or who’s paths will cross again.
Here is our last picture.
Tour was amazing, CMC was life changing, I met some amazing people, and made some memories I’ll have forever. It’s only May and I can’t even believe what has happened so far this year.
