sharing ... and the way home.

He shared his ice cream.

She shared a walk on a windy morning ...

We shared some fun at the end of a grassy pier while the wind was blowing in a storm...

We shared some jokes on the beach...

I shared my beach chair...fairly often. 

We shared a book.

Before we knew it ...
it was time to go home. 
It is only two weeks since we packed our bags to board the plane to come home...
and yet it seems like a month...
maybe more.

Good times were had by all.
We played and ate and even on the way home...
did some sleeping.

Here is one final travel tip...

If your head can't stay up on it's own...
just borrow a pair of pyjama bottoms  from your sister and tie the legs to the back of your car seat.

Thank you for sharing our trip with me.
It was a lot of fun remembering it all and maybe one day we'll be able to do it again.

I'm so thankful...
so very thankful.

all for now...
