Just under an hour later we were all getting off the plane at Dulles. It was raining steadily and after we collected our bags we decided not to wait around for the shuttle, as it was only about a mile-and-a-half easy walk to where we had parked our car. The rain felt refreshing as was the cool night air. Pulling the suitcases behind us was no problem, although when we sat down I did say something like "Eureka!" Whoever invented wheels on suitcases I could kiss them.
We found these seals on a beach in La Jolla. I'll share more photos later when I have more bounce in my step.
