August 10, 2014, Sunday - central valley family spots & home

Last day of the trip, we left Mountain View early and drove through Gilroy, past the dangerously low San Luis Reservoir, and into the Central Valley of California. 
 We stopped in Grangeville for a cemetery visit, bringing flowers to 3G, then found a park for a picnic.

There are lots of old family headstones between Randy and the van.

 On to Hanford, where we were too busy getting milk shakes from Superior Dairy to remember to take any pictures. The Hanford cemetery was next, where GG received flowers.  Finally we brought flowers to Aunt Frankie in Visalia and had a nice visit with her, talking about her favorite SF Giants and other things.

We rolled on home around 6 p.m. to face the reality of loads of dirty laundry, piles of mail, and a really messy car. 

The end of another great road trip, with more state stickers added to the map in the back of the van.  It's going to be tricky to get the rest of the country - N Dakota, Iowa, Missouri, Maine, the Carolinas, Georgia, Florida and Louisiana...and then there's Canada and Alaska....
