By Rebecca Happy New Year, all! We spent our eve at a friend’s house perched high on a hill in Oakland with a view of the bay. The moon was crazy big and red and it got bigger and bigger as it set behind San Francisco. Um, spectacular. But oh so quiet!! I’ve gotten used … Read More

Hello, Anthony here. Happy New Year! found this compass in the basement of the Minneapolis Avenue house and it seemed like a fitting icon for the adventure we are on. The sense of direction even when things seem sometimes directionless.  I love knowing that the future can have firm roots in the past. I can’t … Read More

Ginger Snaps

December 27, 20112011/12 Tour, Travel

By Rebecca A few years ago, I made a batch of ginger snaps that have become legend. They were super bitey and the perfect combination of chewy and crispy. I don’t even know what recipe I used, so a recreation has been hard to manage. I tried again yesterday; they were good, but I’m not … Read More

Lake Minnetonka, Minnesota by Rebecca Remember Minneapolis Avenue—the street my grandparents lived on from 1939 until just a month ago?

Highway 101 + Highway 1

December 13, 20112011/12 Tour, Travel

by Rebecca It feels like we just got here but it’s been a week since we emerged from the redwood forest onto the coast at twilight and drove into town on the dark and winding Highway 1. I have taken easily to the California winter and am not ready for tomorrow’s foray into the serious … Read More

San Francisco

December 9, 20112011/12 Tour, Travel

by Rebecca Perspectives are always changing here; eye-level with the city from across the water, hovering somewhere in the middle of it as we cross a bridge, bird’s eye from a hilltop, down below as we drive underneath a massive bridge base.

Field Report 035: Beach Picnic

December 8, 20112011/12 Tour, The Field Report, Travel

By Rebecca San Francisco, California Slowing down a bit these last few days. Making a habit of lunching in the sand, driving on tiny roads surrounded by big trees, and taking windy roads to the coast. Our twilight drive down Highway 1 last night was spectacular. Got into SFO around 10pm.

West Coast.

by Rebecca Gold Beach, Oregon We left Portland pretty early and drove like crazies through the Oregonian hinterland so that we could catch sunset over the Pacific. And guess what? It worked. Checked into our amazing little cabin with stone fireplace and ocean view (I can see it right now as I am writing next … Read More
