Last Minute. by violet

I was having a very rough last week. I was so tired and out of it - forgetting things, making errors, sending e-mails with typos in them and generally being in a state of disarry.

When out of the blue, J.P. and I got an totally unexpected invitation out to a friend’s place on Whidbey Island. This, this, was just what I needed. The invitation alone pulled me out of the funk I had been in.

We picked up Bryan and Amy and boarded the ferry on Saturday afternoon out to the island. And you know how I feel about ferryboats.

The place was amazing – right on the beach. It’s a family place – I can’t even remember exactly how many different families were represented over the course of the weekend. And dogs, so many dogs.

There was beach volleyball, jet skiing, plenty of time for reading my wonderful book.

There were s’mores, cigars, cocktails and more food than any one person needs to eat.

It was tough to leave – and even tougher when one of the ferries broke down.

But, more importantly, I came back with a sun burn and a renewed outlook on life.

Thanks so much to the Chapman’s (and the other families who were around) for giving me exactly what I needed.

  1. That looks amazing! I'm going to vacation vicariously through you from now on...

    How is your book? It's been getting a lot of buzz lately and am curious.
