Planting seeds at each juncture symbolizing their new growth. With an open mind and heart, ready to get a true view of this world.

Sunrise and Spring

An early morning coffee and stroll down the boardwalk to the beach reveals a sunrise trying to equal the sunset of the previous evening. What a spectacular day dawns this first day of spring. Taking the Pine Island Sanctuary Audubon Trail across the way seems most appropriate and provides the perfect setting. This brisk hike invigorates and prepares us for our departure from this beautiful town of Duck. Finding a spot for our sunflower planting is easy, and that done, we head out. We hate to leave.

Our travels will take us to Williamsburg today where we get to meet up with my sister and nephews. The day is just beautiful and the drive lovely. We're only a couple hours away and arrive in time to take in the Michelangelo exhibit at the Muscarelle Museum of Art at the William and Mary campus. Touring this with Kathy, the premier expert on this artist, is something everyone should have a chance to do. Her friend, Scott, a fellow conservator, has joined our party and we thoroughly enjoy this delightful little museum that is so very well presented.

Grounds on the college are beautiful and within walking distance of downtown Williamsburg. A leisurely stroll provides a very scenic backdrop as we find a spot for a late lunch. Delicious sandwiches are had at Seasons, great conversation, catching up and much laughter. The perfect afternoon is upon us and we enjoy it fully. A short trip brings us back to our home for the next week where we set up camp and enjoy some more time with everyone on our huge balcony. This will be enjoyed often over the days to come, we're sure.

Our transition travel day has been successful and we look forward to a relaxing week visiting with family and exploring this very pretty and historical area.


  1. It's actually one word - "Muscarelle."
    It was truly a fun day for us as well.
    Michelangelo, Family, and Friends - it doesn't get any better than this!

  2. I finally had a chance to read your blog to catch up where you are and what you ladies are doing. What a journey so far and I bet it will get better and better. The pictures are absolutely awesome. Keep having a save journey..........
