Back home... retrospectives on a nine-day road trip
Thursday, November 22, 2012
This is a new 60 year old. On her birthday. In a bathing suit. On a beach. With the Gulf of Mexico stretching out behind the guy who was kind enough to snap the photo.
This is said 60 year old the last day she could call herself 59. But taken where you can see the gulf behind me, by DEBRA0818. What a great day that was.
Speaking of DEBRA0818, here I am with her, and I got to hold Edison (a charming canine).
Here are the two Spark friends (SLENDERELLA61 is on the right) who hatched a plot a year ago to run together. And it ended up being this incredible nine day road trip that I gave myself as a birthday present.
This is the abandoned dog I wrote about yesterday morning. So sad.
So those are the photos I'm putting in the blog for now. I really wanted to write about some of the insights of travel. One of the nice things about driving is that it gives me time to talk to myself and be quiet, away from anything other than having to keep me and Dexter safe on the road.
Home again late this afternoon, I am again a coiled spring... NEED to move. We shall see what that translates into in terms of tomorrow's activity. One advantage: no big turkey dinner, or pumpkin pie tempations!
Hope all my Spark friends had a great Thanksgiving... with focus on the Thanks... because we all have *something* to be grateful for, and many of us have a great deal to be grateful for. As I was counting my blessings on the drive today, I had to put health at the top. How well the body has responded to good nutrition and activity has blown me away.
Bless each and every one of you. Happy Thanksgiving!
