The best-laid plans, and a blogoversary

It's hard to believe this blog is 15 years old today. It has sputtered along for the last year or so, a tiny hidden heartbeat in the silence of a dormant site. It's tempting to use this milestone anniversary to say a permanent goodbye, but every time I wrote that particular post, it proved impossible to publish. So it's once again time to brave the clutter and chaos of Wordpress, fire up my place-holder instagram, and finally let LA Observed rest in peace.

Meanwhile, a month on San Juan Island has been whittled down to 10 days. It turns out the wild puppy gets wildly car sick. We scrapped the road trip and now the pups will stay with a sitter and the humans will do a bit of flying. It wasn't a complete loss, though. We got to see Sacramento at twilight, had a night in beautiful downtown Stockton, and spent time at all of the best rest stops along the I-5. (Is there a font for sarcasm?) We also got to discover that as much as Teddy can't tolerate road trips, she absolutely loves a good hotel.

Anyway, happy 15-year blogoversary to Here in Malibu. It will be interesting to see what comes next.
