September was a fair month for accruing miles. My total for the month was one hundred twenty-nine and two one-hundredths miles. That's 129.02 if you prefer digits over words. That makes my total for the trip two thousand nine hundred three and thirty-six one hundredths miles. Again, if you prefer digits over words, that makes 2903.36. That means that if I keep track of things through October I should hit the three thousand mile mark. Do you think I am happy about that??

Remember that this is a "virtual" trip. So while my steps are mostly happening in and around the homestead, we are pretending that I am making progress toward New Zealand.
I am now 567.02 miles off the coast of California. I am as far from California as Port Arthur, Texas was from where I started. Realizing that gave me a little much-needed encouragement.
While walking through the waves, I spotted a drone...

Given the time of year, I missed some of the prestigious yacht races. Probably just as well; I doubt they would be terribly impressed with my Country Girl Couture!
What do you think; will I make Hawaii and Gardenias For Breakfast by my birthday in eight months?
