visual snippets from the road

I’ve been on the road since February 4th!  It’s been four months of road trippin’ with the podcast. Here’s a little of what I’ve seen and done from  JFK->SFO->LAX->SFO->PDX->and beyond.

Seeing the Pacific Ocean for the first time.  What a beauty.

A Jellyfish at the Monterey Bay Aquarium, where Jean Richards was adamant that I visit and where we recorded her story. We sat at a table in the cafeteria while workers had at meeting a table nearby, children played and people sipped their coffee.




I got to meet Lola on my trip to Los Angeles.
