Driving back to Boston

Whew, it’s been a long day in the car! We drove from DC to Boston, with a short stop in New Haven to unload some things into my apartment, get my camping gear, and say hello to Jeff over dinner. 8+ hours in the car. Summary in photos:

Breakfast – 2 egg whites and pepper stripsGood bye apartment! totally LOADED car.. happens every time, no matter how hard I try to limit my junk…
Coffee with skim milk and sugar for the roadA variety of snacks for the long car ride, including a crisp red apple, blue berries, pretzel slims, bubbles, a banana slathered in almond butter, and an amazing bar of chocolate. All were shared with mom.This chocolate from TJ’s was awesome – dark chocolate with toffee, walnuts, and pecans pieces. It was buttery, salty, crunchy, yum. But, a little bummed to see soy and corn syrup in the ingredients. I ate far more than my share… Oh and a peanut butter cookie, from the batch I had made for Kath a while ago, I had put a few in the freezer for a time like this! We finally got to New Haven, unloaded, and met up with Jeff for dinner at Bar. Pizza! And they brew their own beer. I had an amber beer, and we got a mushroom, pepper, onion pizza. It was tasty and hit the spot, thin crust pizza so you gotta eat a bunch of pieces to fill up. Just enough. It was great to see Jeff briefly, and I’ll see him again on Saturday, yay! We hit the road again for the rest of the trip up to Boston, home! On the way it POURED out so we pulled over for a while, and as we waited for it to pass, a rainbow appeared! You can’t tell in this photo, but it was a full one. We finally made it back, unloaded the car, and now I’m ready for bed! It’s good to be HOME! :)
