After spending an entire month in the Gulf Shores area, we headed west on I-10 and it really felt good to be on the move again for both of us. Bob seems to be back in the progress mode again with a recent surge in strength and desire to see and experience new things. It feels good once again and thank goodness life is feeling more settled.
Judy, we honked the horn and waved as we passed the Sandhill Crane NWR. You were probably out capturing more of those wonderful wildlife photo’s that you do so well.
We enjoyed a tail wind the entire day Sunday. It certainly made for an easy travel day and as we crossed the Mississippi River the sunset was whispering….”keep on trucking”
As I was driving along it suddenly dawned on me that nearly 12 years ago, almost to the day, my Mom and Dad were traveling with me in the very same spot however headed in the other direction. I had a “tired, old Winnebago” that I traveled in while working temporary positions at various airports. I purchased the poor beast with the intention of working and traveling while I was employed for Northwest Airlines. In my mind life in those days couldn’t get much better than being able to mix work and adventure. Ah, the memories!
Although in recent years, the airline industry has changed in such a manner that I could not imagine it ever would have, I am still very grateful for the doors that my career opened for me. I had the privilege of seeing much of the world, meeting new people, sharing in cultures I otherwise would have never been exposed to, and embracing the differences as well as the likenesses in people. I am a firm believer in staying just a smidgeon out of my comfort zone, …it has built a strong character! (As some would say, what a character)
I am certain that keeping life just a tad on the edge has helped me to continue on this trip of a lifetime even with the health circumstances and challenges. Life is good!
We are spending the next few nights at Sam Houston Jones State Park in Lake Charles LA…..still looking to see an alligator!
By the way, a big thank you goes to my blogging friends that suggested I try using Live Writer. It is making all the difference in the world…no problems, no frustration, smooth sailing. I was getting so frustrated with Blogger and it’s issues that I felt like throwing in the towel. Thanks bunches!!!
Have a great day
