If you look at zero you see nothing; but look through it and you will see the world.

In case you haven’t guessed from my last post, I took another trip back to the Bogs. It was lovely. I spent good, quality time with my granddaughters, as well as with my sons and their wonderful wives.
One of the unexpected benefits of the trip was that I find myself ready to settle in here at the Wabi-Sabi Ranch. Finally!
A lot of chapters were closed with this last trip. Closure, they say, is good. I tend to agree. It certainly helps when it comes to moving on.
Before my trip, I hadn’t been out to the dock in about 2-3 weeks. Hard to believe, isn’t it? But I was so fed up with the heat, the humidity, and the bugs that I’d given up on going out there.
It was good to get out there again, and remember why I wanted to live here in the first place. I feel as if I’m on vacation whenever I sit on the dock and look out at the scenery. It’s so peaceful and beautiful out there.
The weather out in the Bogs was fantastic. Cool, breezy, and no need to turn on the air conditioning. I am grateful that the cooler, drier weather accompanied us on our trip back to the Eastern Shore. We hit heavy, heavy rain after crossing over the Chesapeake Bay Bridge, but that heavy, heavy rain eventually cleared out and took the heat and humidity with it.
M and I worked outside yesterday. It was good to get out and enjoy the sun and fresh air. I spent a couple of hours lopping down vines in the woods and grasses growing over the boardwalk to the dock. I also helped M a little with hauling some of the trash to the ever-growing trash pile that we’re readying for the Junk Man.
We made a few new discoveries. It’s like an adventure around here, with surprises popping up all over the place, some things I’ve never seen before in my life. I’ll show you some of those tomorrow. I wanted to show you the pretty stuff today.
I reckon that’s it for today. Thank you for stopping by. It’s a gorgeous, fabulous day here on the Eastern Shore. Let’s go out to the dock and pretend we’re on vacation. There are just enough clouds around that we should have a beautiful sunset. Bring your fishing rod if you’re so inclined. I hear the fishing is fine.
Be good, be kind, be living. Just Be. 🙂
