The Bay at Last

Category:Ford vehicles

Some will have noticed my absence as my husband and I packed up and moved to our Sabbatical Retreat home in an isolated town on a Bay on the East Coast.

I sit here in our blue and yellow living room looking out at the bay, in air-conditioned comfort, seeing the waving branches of the cedar trees surrounding our cottage and knowing that it’s 91 degrees outside. The sun is bright, and I just got internet last night. I am at peace!

We had a rough start, taking ten hours to pack up the U-Haul with our odds and ends and then being too exhausted to go far beyond our hometown the first night, but we’ve felt completely free to relax here at the beach, and I can’t get enough of looking out our bedroom windows at the white sand!

Our son came down to help us unload our stuff, mostly books for the year, and things we didn’t want to purchase..unknowns like bedding that we thought we’d need and kitchen stuff.  We were right on both counts, a fortunate guess, since we took the cottage sight unseen!

What did we fill the truck with? That’s a question we’ll have to leave unanswered, since it just doesn’t make sense even to us. Jon and I brought our computers, printers, a few projects. I brought ALL my clothes just in case I never return North except for a visit.

I’ve been aiming South for the past five years at least and, having arrived here, I see no turning back. I may eventually long for friends, since i don’t plan on making a lot of new ones..I want to nurture my old friendships from afar, but, for now I’m only looking into the sunshine and sand and saying, Hurrah!
