Spring Break, Woo!

As previously mentioned, last week Jake and I set forth into the snow, to commence my spring break. We made a big triangle– an Amtrak ride west from Penn Station to Huntingdon, several days spent in sunny Central Pennsylvania with sad-eyed dogs and bathtime babies and futon bunk beds and meals with friends and forests full of fire, then a long drive north and east in Partystina’s little silver car, up through Pennsylvania, New York, into Vermont with its rutty roads, blue rivers, snowy mountains, and the lovely home of KenSteamer before boarding a speeding bus early yesterday evening, driving south right into the heart of Manhattan, which doubtlessly continued to shake and shine in our absence.

We are leaving soon, it occurred to me, re-entering, looking at the lights, riding the late night subway home to our little room with the lamps and the cat, sleeping in our creaky gift bed.

Here are the cats we caught while out in the wilderness.

About bearicaquinn

Smallish, smushy in the sad parts, certainly destined for cat-lady-dom. Enjoys boats, bikes, black coffee, pug faces, sourdough bread, the morning when you have slept long enough, beards, mountainsides, art, rooftops, etc. Will continue to live in things that are interestingly shaped. So octopus.
