Healing in Sacramento…
First off, thanks for all the kind words regarding my hand! It’s nice to know that people have had similar experiences and that it’s not the end of the world but part of the great (and sometimes painful) learning experiment – life. While my hand is healing and Laura is getting over the cold (same one I had a few days ago), we’ve been hanging out in Sacramento. We’ve been really fortunate that during this time where we both have to convalesce, we have had some homestays from some very generous people.
Two of those people are Logan and Tammy. They are a great couple who have been following our journey for awhile and who hope to do their own similar bike adventure in the future. They are both interested in simple living and the tiny house movement. Tammy has a blog, Rowdy Kittens, that covers a lot of simple living news.We’ve had some great conversations during the last few days and it has been a great joy getting to know them.
Today, we did a portrait session in the park. They are both car free so the three of us rode our bicycles (naturally!) to the shoot. The weather was perfect and the warm colors of fall were just starting to spread throughout the trees.
Burnt hand and all, I still feel blessed to be where we are and to have met all the great people along our strange slow journey.

So glad you’re both healing up! It’s good to be able to take the time needed to do that so you can continue your journey in good strength.
I love that last shot through the flowers.

Rowdy Kittens is where I first learned of your adventure, and I’ve been following you since that day!

Beautiful photos. I will look forward to reading Rowdy Kittens & am all for simple living!
Hope Russ’s hand is healing well and Laura’s cold disappears shortly. Did you get our family’s donation (though PayPal)? We were hoping to treat you to a movie night out in San Fran when we saw your Fb status last weej. Maybe movie night out in Sacramento instead…

Love the photos! Especially the first black & white one and the last one through the flowers! I, too, learned of your adventure through Rowdy Kittens! Glad to hear you are both healing up and resting for awhile. Best of luck to you during the rest of your journey.
