Yes, I’ve been gone. I guess you figured that out. Where was I ? You may have figured that out too. I was here:
Which is Anegada. Otherwise known as home. This was MKL’s first trip to the BVIs, and most happily, all my adopted family just loved him. We are scheming on things we could do to make a living down there, once our respective kids are launched, and have some interesting ideas. Now it’s just a matter of making time to flesh them out.
The shutter was busy while we were away, so I have lots of pictures to share, although I realize that most of them are just boring beautiful beach scenes, but I somehow never get tired of capturing the colors of the water on “film”. We found flamingoes, ate lobster, watched sunsets, played in the water, got silly, talked with people, and fell more in love.
In short a perfect sabbatical. Details to come…
that I can look at my daughter and marvel at how beautiful she is.
that I know the postmistress by name and that she is the same woman who has been here since I was a child, that she still recalls my parents, and that I now know her sad past.
that the roller rink is still above the post office.
that Mr. Godwin also remembers my parents and shared with me his frustration with the DMV not renewing his license because he couldn’t idenitfy what all the roadsigns meant.
how hot is was today.
remembering my Dad walking to the post office every day, and the few days when the heat index was so high that my Mom would drive to get him, even though it’s less than half a mile.
that I have been here for three days and have read two books and have a glow to me from the sun.
that the new chairs on the back deck are an awesome shade of purple.
that it was a pretty fair day for boogie-boarding.
that we have an excursion planned for today (even though it will mean being away from home).
that I can always rely on the waves to tell me the truth.
