to sit on the seawall to wait for the sun.
I am getting excited. Anticipation is the best part of any trip. The adventure is all in front of you. And it begins with packing and shaping up.
I spent a glorious weekend packing on paper and shopping online The worst was deciding on the bathing suits. I like to take three. I adore swimming. I used to adore bathing suits too; not anymore. My figure is Gone With the Wind thanks to a cancer pill, an arthritis pill, a bum knee, half-hearted exercise and feeling sorry for myself so what-the-hell-I'll- have-potato-chips-with-that.
|Then puff-puff clouds and the brilliant promise of a glorious day.|
