Midway Point - Getting Ready to Go Long!

My first ever dragon fruit

A heart...how cool is that?

Wow, it's like an albino kiwi...lol

Ready to add some berries...yum!
     My planned respite and regroup period in MD and DE has reached its midway point.  I’m pretty much on track with completing a list of TO-DO’s in preparation for an extended road trip.  This next span will be the longest to date without visiting family and friends.  I’m very excited about this next phase and almost everything is in order.  I have a physical next week.  My tax info is ready to send off to my accountant.  All speculated needs have been purchased and all other supplies have been re-evaluated and prioritized.   Only Van-Go's oil change and bath and Breeze's release from winter storage and a few other small details remain.  
     My itinerary from March 6 – April 5 has been designed…event tickets have been purchased, visits have been confirmed and lodging has been reserved.  Of course, there are infinite possibilities remaining for all the time that has NOT been scheduled…the sights, hikes, waterfalls, quiet afternoons, U-turns, parks, sunrises, spontaneous pitstops after catching a billboard out of the corner of my eye and beautiful new Bright Spots!
     I am feeling especially blessed in this moment that I am able to experience this incredible adventure!  I am empowered with the gifts of trust, curiosity, gratitude, and desire to live my life to the fullest!  I believe that I have always lived my life with great passion in whatever form it took at the time.  This phase has been no different and it my sincere intention that I continue to find magic in every day and cherish my life with each breath.

     With that said, I’d like to share a bit of what’s been going on these last 12 days…in pictures!!!
Sushi with Matthew

Aahhhh, and let's not forget the saki!

Watch out for the wasabi!
My friend Dena's birthday party...getting
help with all those candles...lol

Bright Spot - Being warm inside your natural winter coat and making friends along your walk on the beach!!!  This was the good news from a beautiful long haired mastiff, who chose to remain nameless!!!  His happy face and wagging tail was an unmistakable indication of his positive outlook on life!!!  It was a pleasure to ‘chat’ with him! 

Bright SpotAt my friend Dena’s birthday party, I had the absolute pleasure of meeting Sarah and Glenn!  They will be getting married Oct. 3rd at a beautiful venue in Rehobeth…Baywood Greens Country Club and India is their honeymoon destination.
They met in law school and have been together about three and a half years.    Sarah has always been an avid world traveler and now she and Glenn explore together.  They have been places such as Israel, Jordan, Machu Picchu in Peru, Italy…and the list goes on!   For Sarah’s 30th birthday, Glenn booked a flight to Las Vegas to have their engagement pictures done!  How fun!

As I talked to each of them, it was clear that there is much more to be excited about than their amazing adventures around the world.  It is their adventure together!  They were both delightful and it was apparent that they genuinely love being with each other.  Best wishes and safe travels!!!
