Hazards

We flew Tripp to Santa Paula for an oil change and checkup, because we’re starting to plan yet another Big Adventure (more on that soon). Often when driving on the freeway we think about how dangerous it is. Less so than when I used to ride a motorcycle, and less even than undivided highways. We feel much safer in Tripp, but as with anything in life there are some hazards to be aware of. Today as we left, Anne worried about whether the wispy low clouds over the beach at Hope ranch might come ashore before we returned.

These similar wispies were near La Conchita, and to me they’re far more beautiful than hazardous because of course I fly well clear of them. Worst case if Anne’s fears had materialized, we’d have flown to Santa Ynez and hitched a ride home to wait for a clear day. We also saw evidence of another travel hazard on the beach nearby.

Will they be able to save it, or was this the final hazard for a dream boat? Presumably nobody was hurt, as is usually the case with all hazards. But every time we see a mishap of any sort, it’s an reminder to both take care and enjoy the moment.
