Maybe I put off this final blog post about our ERT (Epic Road Trip) because I didn't want it to end. Then, the holidays got in the way...and -- what do you know? IT'S MARCH ALREADY...
It was such a great trip....and I AM SO GLAD WE DID IT, MARION...
Because here's what I know for sure. You NEVER know anything for sure.
Life happens so fast...and the changes can be both instant and permanent. Of course, the older I get, the more clear this is -- which is why this particular trip was so special.
Once we left Savannah, Georgia -- we got on I-95 S. We had pretty much avoided it up to this point -- but who are we kidding?? IT WAS TIME TO MAKE SOME TIME...
The landscape changed very quickly -- and palm trees became a part of the scenery...
|It's been such a long, cold, gray winter -- I barely remember what a blue sky looks like...|
|It was our longest day in the car -- but at the end would be HOME...(for Marion, of course -- not me)|
|Everything in this part of the world is so lush and green...|
|I was smitten by the number of beautiful, tropical birds lounging around town...|
|The vegetation is VERY DIFFERENT from my beloved Iowa cornfields...|
|Oh, yeah -- Marion's condo is ON THE GOLF COURSE....|
|The public beaches are accessible and absolutely, 100% stunning.|
|Here we are, on our last day together.|
