Turns out last week's on-line hour wasn't enough time to comment everywhere I'd like too- There's so much to check n look-up it's all a big rush here.
The pre-paid phone was priority, n the site got updated again so I couldn't find what I usually do. I can't stand wasting time like that. I didn't get to three of my fave bloggers, did read some tho- Sorry about that. Being on a timer is getting really old...
This week the Tropical Storm Hermine, (named after my gorgeous, deceased Auntie
), is aiming for the west-coast / pan-handle area of Florida. I have two sisters living near Clearwater, who I'd just seen a few weeks ago...
by this seawall in Marshfield MA used in my pics today.
I trust n pray they will be spared damaging winds n flooding concerns anticipated there-
This Seawall has been battered by many a storm n kept folks homes in this section intact for eons.
It was a rare occasion to see all my sibs in one place after so long. It was a good family memory day, with no wars, n lots of grand-sib kids to play together in the waves. (Mine weren't there). The relative's home nearby will likely be sold soon, n we'll miss that spot as a gathering place.
Renting a house for a week there now goes for about $1800. I'd visited this beach area way back as a teen, when a friend's Mom rented a cottage for $500 per week.
We all seem to take living near the sea for granted, between Maine, Mass, n Florida coast-lines. We've all been fortunate n Thank God for allowing us to experience this wonder throughout our lives.
The space, the smell, n sounds of the open- ocean beach can bring peace n serenity to the soul- on a fair-weather day. Lately, the unpredictable natural disasters striking everywhere makes where you choose to be a crap-shoot.
Strange that it's possible (tho unlikely) that this storm as depicted on the tv weather report, could possibly visit all of us sibs!
My future blog pics may show some more of these beach scenes in the near future.
