Looking up…

Look up…

Op-Sail was full of some wonderful sights. Many which you would not have seen if you didn’t Look Up. Many times in life we just need a new perspective and a reason to look at things in a new way. I think we get so busy looking at where we want to go we miss all that is around us. Op-sail provided us a time to walk slow, explore, and enjoy all the things around us. Hope you enjoy this first tour of all we saw….

Hanging it up… Coming Home

I’m hanging up the rope for the week… I have done enough tugging this week. Last weekend and our trip are starting to seem like a distant memory. This week was long and I only worked 4 days. The rope above is from one of the tall ships we got to tour. I still need to post about Op-Sail and all the things we saw. I will get to it I promise 🙂

One of the nicest feelings is coming home…

While on our trip I was thinking a lot about those who are over seas and have to be away from family. I feel blessed they have done this so I don’t have to experience my husband gone. My Dad used to be in the military and go away for weeks or months, but I was too young to remember. I have been told there is nothing like a military home-coming.

I hope you all have a blessed week and I will send you off to the weekend with fireworks … Enjoy 🙂
