California Clean El Camino

We're back in Maine, still California dreaming. Spring is looking a little....terse and unforgiving, here on the Downeast coast. But there is plenty of light, and with some good rains, the green will grow in Maine just as it's fading out in California. H and I arrived at Logan Airport in Boston about an hour after the insane bombings....Patriots Day in Mass.,. As our bus driver noted, the highways are usually empty on P.D., but because of people exiting the city,roads yesterday were jammed. The news was sickening. Hope they catch the creeps, and fast.
Meanwhile we are reminding ourselves of California light with this I'm-guessing-1967 El Camino.
