Who could have predicted when the WWBC topics were chosen for this year where we’d be today? I’m sure the topic of travel is one a lot of folks’ minds today, particularly with a holiday weekend coming up here in the US.
Technically the last place I traveled was to the grocery this morning. I just got in and sat down to write this so I could get it posted since I’ve been incognito for a couple of weeks. Life is as busy here for us as it ever has been even though we’re not traveling about as much. We’ve accomplished several home improvements projects and our gardening season is in full swing. But, I digress, because I’ve weaved off topic a bit.
The last actual, no kidding, vacationing travel we undertook was the first couple of weeks of January of this year, not long before the world shifted. Our wandering vacation included Hilton Head, South Carolina, Savannah, Georgia, Charleston, South Carolina, Parris Island, South Carolina, and Myrtle Beach. We were some busy folks! And I’m so glad we took our time and soaked it all in. I’m glad I got to see the beaches. I hadn’t seen the ocean in over a year then and I’m not sure when I’ll see it again at the rate we’re going now. I got to shop at Savannah Bee Company and eat amazing seafood, and my husband got to stand in the big yellow footprints on Parris Island, something he’d not done in thirty-one years. I shopped at the base exchange there, something I’d not done in over two years since his retirement.
We’re wanderers by nature and circumstance. We roamed together for twenty-four years through his military career. We’ve been fortunate enough to see things and places most only dream about. While retirement has settled us some into a bit of a homebody routine, and we’ve enjoyed growing our roots for the first time in our adult lives, we still feel the tug of moving and traveling. And particularly now, I find myself wander-lusting for all those places and things I’ve not seen and experienced yet but have on my bucket list.
How things change in the blink of an eye.
