Last week, we loaded up the Subaru and took Wylla on her biggest adventure yet - we went to California! It was a 12 hour drive to our destination, and she did remarkably well. She got a little squirmy at the end, but we were even squirmier at that point. Even with many breaks for stretching legs and snacking, 12 hours is a long way to go in one day for felines and humans too.
We met up with Craig's parents and spent a few days at his Grandmother's home. She passed away this summer, and the family is in the process of sorting through her things, and deciding what to do with the house, which was built by her husband.
The house is a long, California ranch-style with lots of rooms. Wylla explored every square inch of it, finding cobwebs in the corners, and smelling every smell. There were boxes to examine, and lots of groovy furniture to climb on and under. You could tell she felt very at ease in Grandma Sally's home, and seemed to really enjoy her time there. I wish Sally could have met her. Sally was a lover of all critters, and a great writer and storyteller. I know she would have loved meeting Wylla and telling the tale of her visit.
Tomorrow I'll share part two of our visit to Yuba City and the rest of the week, more of our California adventure. So, please stay tuned!
