This post will be short both on photos and words. I just wanted to get something out since it’s been a while, but it will take me some time to collect my thoughts and download/edit my pics. Hopefully by next week.
We returned home on Monday after three and a half months on the road, visiting a few towns in Florida as well as Hilton Head, S.C. and Asheville, N.C. Although last years trip was good, this year was even better (no illness and poor weather like last year). The worst that happened was I sprained my ankle while playing pickleball, but hey, if you’re gonna do something like that, it comes with the territory.
I took surprisingly few photos with my dslr. I just didn’t feel like lugging it around all the time, and I think cell phones take pretty good photos anyway. I actually used my Canon the most while driving home through the Shenandoah Valley. It’s the first time we took that route because Asheville was our last stop and it just made sense. I’m so glad we got to see that part of the country. So pretty, and I’m hoping the shots aren’t blurry due to them being taken while driving around 65 mph. ;).
Some of you know that this year we went south not just to escape the cold weather and a change of scenery, but we’ve actually decided to possibly purchase a home somewhere else. I was hoping that when we returned we would have clarity on where we wanted to buy and what we wanted to buy, but we don’t. We most likely will be returning to North Carolina in a few weeks for a week or so, but this time it will be the Wilmington area. If we aren’t impressed, my guess is we will purchase something small, perhaps a condo or manufactured home, in Venice, Florida and be snowbirds.
In the coming weeks I’ll be sharing our thoughts about the places we’ve been to so far…what we liked about them and what we didn’t. If you’re nearing retirement and thinking of relocating, or you just like to be an arm chair traveler, I think you’ll enjoy it.
Now I’ve got a house to clean and laundry to do. You know, the fun stuff…
