Again I slept a good bit and rose for an early lunch. Â I offered to drop off Ty and at his house had a back-and-forth with Amelia. Â She is going to school for photography and mocked me for my usage of autofocus. Â I stared at her stating “I use autofocus so I can do this”, and without lifting my gaze put my camera near the floor pointing away from me in the vague direction of Ty’s cat and got this shot:
I’ll take it.
With Ty dropped off, Suzie, Brooke, and I said our goodbyes to Ryan, Peter, Audrey, and Amelia and we set about unwinding the journey. Â Suzie and I talked for most of the ride to Cincinnati while Brooke slept and I was glad for this time. Â With Suzie dropped off, Brooke and I made the 600 mile trip back to her place and she took over about 400 miles out from home. Â She drove the rest of the way admirably but was a bit on edge as she neared home. Â The way we drive changes in interesting ways when we’ve not slept and Brooke veered towards jackrabbit starts and sudden breaking. Â She had beaten her previous record for continuous driving by a factor of four but I was glad to make it back to home.
