It’s been one of those Sundays where I wanted to do something different – and I have not been downtown (except for shopping at Thrifty Foods) since I arrived back three weeks ago today.
Can you believe it’s been three weeks? There are times each day, especially in the mornings, when all of this feels utterly surreal. That I actually ever left and this isn’t just a continuation of my life. That I actually came back and I’m not going to wake up in the Koots tomorrow. Most of all, that almost five years (Oct. 5 will be 5) with Simon are over. I cherish my memories.
But here I am and it’s all real.
So, after lunch Abby and I headed downtown. We walked for almost two hours: the entire waterfront, pausing to take photos. In fact, we didn’t really walk – we ambled. And I understood that one of the things I love here is being close to the ocean.
And I had fun with the camera today – my gosh, a 30x zoom. That heron was very far away.
We’ve had to push back the Auger Point by two days – weather. And now the forecast has changed again to include showers on Friday.
Damn. Not pushing it back any farther. If we get a few showers, we’ll have to deal with it.
So I’m going to head to Maple Mountain tomorrow for the sake of my back. I need to keep moving it. It’s getting better – but slowly.
