Please understand that I am very aware that thousands have lost everything thanks to Hurricane Irene and her flooding aftermath. The pictures are awful and now the east coast is getting pounded by the left-overs from tropical storm Lee. And adding insult to injury, Hurricane Katia is swirling her mischief in the Atlantic.
Michael and I were scheduled to leave Friday for a vacation that we've planned for almost a year. The dogs had reservations at Camp Scanlon- (We have the greatest neighbors who actually look forward to Rory and Fiona staying at their home. I believe their enthusiasm runs along the same premise as that regarding grandchildren-- all the fun AND they eventually go home again!
At any rate, My Lion and I were all ready to meet my brother, sister-in-law, her mom, Laura, Eric, Livy, Baby Ava, and our dear friends Carole & Al for a beautiful week in a spectacular beach house in Rodanthe on the Outer Banks. Years ago, this is the crowd who used to get together and rent a house at various beach paradises. We always had a blast! I was so looking forward to introducing Livy & Ava to our sandy adventures.
The problem is that Hatteras Island remains under a mandatory evacuation until September 17; the day we were supposed to come HOME!
So, I hope you can forgive me while I pout for a bit. I'll get over it long before they get the Island reopened. Blessings on the people trying to pull their lives back together.
Namaste' Till Next Time,
Thanks to Flkr for this adorable image of a toddler named Dova
