I-90 and The Prodigal Summer

It was an 11 hour drive from Brattleboro, VT to Columbus, OH, with the longest stretch across mid-state New York. Dry in the beginning and end, I encountered rain midway across NY which persisted until the Pennsylvania state line.

I spent most of the time listening to The Prodigal Summer by Barbara Kingsolver. It is strangely suitable, with the preface mentioning something about this being a book for those with "wildness" inside. :-)

Ila kept me waiting (!) once I got to Columbus, which was fine as it gave me time to locate the Ugly Tuna Saloona. (We plan to check it out tonight as it was closed yesterday.) Now, we're off to the Franklin Park Conservatory and Botanical Gardens (she's quite worried about being a proper host and taking me sightseeing). What a sweetie! :-)
