The sunsets in Aruba are spectacular and on this trip often followed by applause when witnessed in groups. The sun hovers on the horizon and then disappears seemingly in less than a minute. Here are a few of my favorite photos, it was impossible to choose only one.
Immediately after losing Spence I remember thinking of those beloved places we’d vacationed and that I’d never go back; it would be too sad.
It’s been almost two years and the many happy memories have helped me remember our enjoyment of traveling together. I know for sure, he’d be sad if I wasn’t traveling.
Late last August my friends, Jeanne, Frank and I discussed a trip to Aruba. Soon we’d settled on a date, found a gorgeous condo on the northern part of the island and plans were finalized.
Leaving Michigan the day before the polar vortex (a brilliant stroke of luck) we arrived for a week in Aruba, a place that held special memories for me, with new ones to be made. Today as I await my return flight, I feel a sense of calm, a renewed love of this amazing place and a certainty that Spence would applaud my return.
Here is the first post of several to follow.
On cold days, the sunshine makes it a bit less bleak.
Today rainbows were sent into my living room via my dining room window. I love rainbows…
For many years, Spence and I had a bass boat that allowed us to venture into small channels and inlets that larger boats couldn’t access. These photos from ten years ago brought back sweet memories of peaceful times spent observing the beauty of nature while enjoying each other’s company.
In spite of the new baffle, this determined squirrel watched me fill this bird feeder with peanuts and did not delay as soon as I went inside. I have no idea how he managed it but it’s not the first time I’ve caught him doing his acrobatic moves. I think he’s training for a squirrel Cirque du Soleil act.
And from a week ago…you have to give him credit for being determined….
