Good Bye New England, Hello Florida!

Harbour, Fairhaven, Massachusetts
"The secret to a rich life is to have more beginnings than endings."~Dave Weinbaum~
If this quote be true, I am a woman of great wealth! With each season a new episode, a fall preview so to speak. Since retirement our existence a constant range of motion! As we ready to return to our home in Florida we bid our children, family and friends farewell, a sadness always fills my heart. We look forward, however, to a new season in Florida, bejeweled with many wonderful and supportive friends. 
Long hours on the road back, we make every stop an adventure and take our time. 
We have explored many new places during our journeys, up and down the east coast, there are many more gems yet to be discovered and photographed. 
Always something new, always a new beginning, never any time to submit to boredom! 




Pin It!

Boy, what a great life you have! We've been blog buddies for a while now, since I remember you taking the same journey last year. I always enjoy the photos you take along the way and also the scenes you are leaving behind, such as the harbor here. Wishing you a safe journey to your FL home! Come back soon!!

Everyday is a new beginning.

And we can be richer by then.

LOVELY! I really like the reflections.
Happy Trails!
We live away from our children and grandchildren so I know the leaving comes with both sadness and gladness as well.

Kim Stevens said...

So true, I've often wondered if those who get bored have a camera! ; )

Beautiful photo!

Kathy said...

Absolutely gorgeous. You have a certain talent with landscapes.

lorik said...

Beautiful colour - both in the sky and the water. You will enjoy being home too - imagine the different sorts of photos you will be taking - warmer colours I suppose!

It must be difficult to leave such beauty behind along with all your family and friends. Have a safe trip back where more beauty and friends/family will probably be awaiting!

Rosemary, I've been to a Bed and Breakfast that had that same view in 2008 in Fairhaven!! Wonder if you are familiar with it? It was the most memorable part of my train trip across the country from Seattle to Boston..I will check back with you from time to time as I do enjoy your blog...safe journey...Kathy ;)

Jennifer said...

I love the sentiment of the quote Rosemary. I am sure it must be tough to leave a summer with family behind, but I am sure you will have a wonderful end to the year in Florida. The picture for this post is wonderful BTW. I love the cool watery colors.

That is an amazing pic! I hope you have a safe trip home.

Arnoldo L. Romero, MLA said...

The blues in the sky and water are glorious. Blessings!

Farida said...

I agree with you that boredom is never possible to someone who is always on the go and sees opportunity in every situation. No matter what. It's always a blessing to have good people around us. Despite your proximity to your family, true friends are there. Enjoy the rest of your week. Take care :)

Oh, I know the journey. I too will have to be leaving Maine in another 2 weeks. Sigh. In a few more years, we will be doing the same drive as you more routinely once The Professor retires. Can't wait!
