August 19


This is a picture I took last month when I was at the beach. The water and beach always remind me of vacation, and that's why I posted it today.
We are leaving early tomorrow morning on our vacation. We have a 19 hour drive ahead of us. We're going to Colorado, where our son, who is in the army, is stationed. He will have next week off and can spend it with us.
I probably won't have time to visit you and may not get any pictures posted, but I know I'll be taking some and will be posting them at some time.
See you in September!

That's such a beautiful picture! Makes me want to go on vacation.

I've never been to CO, but the pictures I've seen have shown it to be very beautiful.

Have a wonderful time with your son - and a safe trip (that's terribly long!). I'll miss you!

I love the picture, Mari. Please have a safe and wonderful time. Hug your son lots and lots, and do tell him "Thank You" from all of us who are blessed because of his commitment to our country. Enjoy!!!

You have a whole fist full of people having already replied here, but I had to put in my two cents worth.

I could sit and look at this scene for hours and hours. It is wonderful.

The fact that you posted it has given me an idea for another photo op. Thanks!!

Re: The Union Mare & The Confederate Grey

To set things straight: I didn't type it. I copied it. Wish I could send the music to you too. If you are compelled to get it, I'm certain a C&W music store could find it for you.

Love your picture of the sea and beach - today we are having over 30°C degrees and it would be perfect to be at the beach!

I am watching the weather map ahead of you as you travel along. When I looked at it this morning I thought, oh dear, it looks like Mari will be traveling into storms.
Then I checked it again, and it looked like the storms spread apart allowing you to drive through in sunshine. I hope you have good weather all the way.
