      • Just to Bethany Beach in Delaware. We didn’t want the long drive. So I gotta tell you the whole reason for my retirement. I haven’t announced it because there are still a couple things to work out before its official. But, it looks like we’re moving to Ireland in the spring! Can you believe it? H’s company is creating a position for him in Galway! And I might actually get a job over there once we’re settled! 😃

      • I totally am! We are waiting right now for the details regarding salary and benefits. It’s a lateral move, not a promotion, so we had to make sure it was something we really wanted to do. The work environment is sooooooo cool over there. Much more laid back. I might be pouring pints in a pub next year! ☘️

      • Hahaha! If you’re lucky! Sounds perfect to me. Just think of the inspirational characters you’d come across in a pub there. 😃

  4. I love all of them. Endless summer…that’s what we need…75 degrees, sunny with a few clouds and a lovely breeze. Your pictures make me feel happy and I can smell Lake Michigan and feel the towel over my shoulders while wearing a wet bathing suit. It doesn’t get much better than that. Haven’t thought of Meatloaf in ages. 🙂

    • Hahaha! I had to throw him in there. His music takes me back to a different time. And, if my photos gave you images of something so wonderful, then I’m really happy about it. That’s one hell of a compliment. 😊😊


  5. So nice! Are you missing summer already?
