When we were on the go all of the time, when we were in and out of the country, or even up and down rivers and the coast, what we missed the most was being able to spend time with our family and friends. Now that we are more grounded, although still afloat, we take the opportunities to visit, to do things, and to witness what we missed over the past years. Again, in this mostly photographic journal, we document another month of important events in our lives and that of our friends, children, and grandchildren.
As we look back at these pictures from over the past several months, we fully appreciate the times we spend with our family. Somehow it never seems like enough, though. Our arms itch to hold the kids again, to talk with them, to read them stories, to explore the world, and to give them kisses. They are growing up so quickly. In the blink of an eye, they will be off to college and beyond. We take such pleasure in the calls and videos we get. We are so lucky to be grandparents to these wonderful children and to be able to watch them grow and prosper.
Also, looking back at these times, we know we are fortunate to have such wonderful children who are happy and healthy. We love knowing that they have careers that they enjoy and that they are all doing well with them. We know, too, that we are lucky to have good friends that mean so much to us and who are willing to visit aboard. Life really is good – and we are still enjoying Life on AfterMath.
Procrastination is a terrible thing. I usually do not procrastinate, but when I do, it’s because I have let things get too far away from me. For those of you wondering where we are now, I will tell you that we are still living aboard AfterMath. So much, yet so little has happened, it seems. Over the next couple of weeks, I will try to catch up, mostly in picture form, as to where we have been and as to what the future holds. I have always said that this blog was more a journal for me than anything else, and I do want to continue to document our Life on AfterMath until we move back to land, whenever that may be.
So, for the months between mid-August and mid-October, some of our time was spent in Jacksonville and some back in Brunswick, Georgia. We have loved touring the Golden Isles, as this area which includes Jekyll Island, St. Simon’s Island, and Brunswick, is called, and have really begun to appreciate the marshes, the waters, and the islands here. More travels and experiences are to come, so be prepared to see our further adventures in posts over the next several days.
