Tonight we had California wine and dinner in Poway with my parents and Grandfather at my dad's childhood home, where it always smells like pine needles, eucalyptus and oranges. Lights shone and danced on the water as we drove over the Coronado Bay Bridge. Chris parked the car and I took note of the final trip mileage.
It's good to (finally) be here.
