Day 16 - The End

{the full gps track of our trip}

We're home at last. The last day was a rough one, but they usually are. Ellie was a little more fussy than usual, and the train was running very late. We got stopped outside of Cumberland, MD, for over an hour waiting for freight traffic to clear. Made for a long, long day.

Ellie was better at standing at the window in the lounge car on our way back, didn't really need anyone holding her. But she was more into the goings-on around her so she wasn't that interested in standing for long.

Also the East is very tree-y. Makes it hard to get a good picture where there's always trees flashing by the window!

It was a lot of fun seeing the different landscapes go by as we moved from East Coast to Midwest to West and back again, especially going to bed in one region and waking up in another.

It was an amazing two weeks and I can't say I am quite ready to head back to work or anything, but it is nice to be home. Most people probably really like being in their own bed, but my favorite part of being home is taking a shower in my own shower. I don't know why, there's nothing special about our bathroom, it badly needs some updating. But I love it. No matter how nice and fancy and clean their shower is, it's never quite as good as the one at home.
