Fidget and I are back from our quick trip to the Lowcountry. It was so refreshing to be out there with the oaks and the moss,
taking in all those open vistas, remembering good times and hoping to move back one day.
There's a lushness to the land that is seductive. It's so open, so unspoiled.
I can breathe out here!
In addition to virgin vistas we got to visit with friends and stay with family and loved ones. They took us to a fabulous aquarium where we enjoyed fish as well as birds.
This barn owl was a favorite.
And the South has a charm unlike any other place.
We had a leisurely time, learned some history, and Fidget had fun playing with all her cousins. I had time for knitting and Fidget ran some track and cross country with the kids. She even got to dress up as a cheetah at a Halloween party.
We didn't get any tourist trap souvenirs. But what we did come home with were 3 prize feathers courtesy of Romeo, one of our friend Linda's peacocks.
So, now it's back to the tracks. The wind is whipping and rain is falling. But God's peace is with us as are sweet memories of our week at home.
