We drove down to Portland for LeakyCon, took Amtrak down to Los Angeles, stayed with Lacy's brother. Got a tour and some shopping in with Marte (including some Sprinkles Cupcakes The Grove) before catching Anberlin in an acoustic show at The Roxy Theatre. We then rented a vehicle and drove up the Pacific Coast Highway. We stopped for photos at the Golden Gate Bridge and along the Avenue of the Giants scenic byway. We made it back to Portland in time for a couple nights stay on a sailboat (found on Airbnb.com) and fireworks before driving back home.
