Serenity Now

To distract attention away from sisters who hold life-long grudges simply because someone serves them rat poison at a tea party, I am focusing on peace and tranquility. Those words define Gwynn's Island.

My Little Sis and I drove to Gwynn's Island the other night after she was done smearing lipstick and gum all over my stuff. I was very pleasantly surprised to learn that the exact same stretch of highway which is my favorite is also one of hers. We were fortunate enough to witness this absolutely spectacular sunset.

So please, wonderful sisters, gaze upon this and toss those grudges away.
Right along with all that lipstick.

That beautiful sunset reminds me of......a billy goat I saw yesterday.

So, does property in your region cost a bajillion dollars for a postage stamp-sized lot? I'm trying to figure out how to get all of my family and my husband's family to agree to move there with me. And then how to pay for it. And then what to do to earn a living there.


Also? I love all of your commenters, but my favorite is the one called anonymous. I feel I'm learning so much, or that I soon will . . .

tj - Anything is better than that lipstick!

"anonymous" LITTLE SISTER - (insert sounds of crickets here because I'm not saying a word)

foolery - although waterfront property can be on the high side (btw the only reason I have it is because it's been in our family for a kajillion years), non-waterfront is very reasonable, especially in this market. If you want to do a surveillance trip, I'm very happy to have you and your family for a visit. Any time. There's plenty to do to make a living, and the good thing is you don't need much to survive. It is heaven on Earth.

Serenity Now says it all! It's a nice break, giving you time to reflect, and give us another entry reading from you diary.

I'm coming right after foolery! It looks like heaven on earth.

That beautiful shot almost erases the picture of the gum on the wine glass. That has become burned on my brain.

Chesapeake Bay Woman said...

g.j. - You are more than welcome here if you ever want to make the trip. You would not be disappointed with anything other than the lipstick marks on glasses.

mpm - Yes indeed. Mine too.

Found you by way of Foolery and I'm so enjoying the ride. Especially Sibling Rivalry. Oh that my sisters and I were closer in age.
