Vacation 55

 












Whitefish Point, Michigan - Lake Superior in the background

My 55

Weeks of planning
Packing - cleaning
Excitement building
Day arrives - (out the door)
Giddy and carefree
Stress slipping away
Hours on the road - (loving it)
Lake side stops - (so beautiful)
Sites and places visited
Learning, sharing  - (we're together)
We're smiling - laughing
We're in awe and thankful
A needed vacation over - (memories)
Back to reality - it sucks



Side note: Dave took me on a vacation around the peninsula of Michigan, also known as the U P (Upper Peninsula). It was gorgeous and peaceful. Cedar swaps, White pines, gorgeous - great lake views, sweet smells, lots of beauty. It passed so soon, but we both had a wonderful time and I've seen some of the most spectular water I've ever seen, as well as beauty in the forest and Dave and I being together for those nine days.

It's hard to come back to reality after paradise. Your poem conveyed that sense of rush to take it all in before it was over. Makes me wish I coud see it.

You always need a vacation after a vacation just to ease into reality again. The lake looks lovely.

We have our vacation in a week's time. It'll be over far too quickly!

They always seem to go so quickly, especially when you are truly enjoying them. Yours sounds as if it was a little bit of paradise. Glad you enjoyed it and congrats on being together for 9 years :)
