Tomorrow Warren, Chelsea and I take off on a vacation
We are headed North.
I've never gone this direction for vacation.
We only go South.
However, Chelsea had need to go that way for an
Art/Writing/Drama Guild she will attend.
I have, for a few years now,
wanted to visit the area where I was born.
The Adirondack Mountains.
we are going to do it.
After we leave Jonathan, Michael
and the Moms in charge of the cats, dogs and
expected new chicks.....we'll head out.
Chelsea and our friend, Anthony, will be delivered
to a very special location not too far from
New York City tomorrow afternoon.
They will join nearly 100 other young adults who are
on a mission to impact
the world of the Arts
Warren and I will head about two hours north and
begin our journey.
Exploring and gathering images of places where
my parents met, fell in love and married.
I hope to peek at the hospital where I was born.
Today Mom gave me directions to get to the tiny school
on the side of a mountain where my Grandpa built a home
and where my existence began.
If I were to peek inside one of the rooms of that home
I would see the very place where my dad began my
Mom showed me the photo today.
I'm in my baby seat and my young, young,
daddy was leaning over me teaching me precious truths.
How thankful I am for this heritage.
I'm going to find a fire tower and declare it
the very one that my mom,
climbed...or attempted to climb...
in an effort to get me to decide to be born.
It didn't work.
I'm just that stubborn.
I'll have access to the internet and hope to blog
some as we go but don't worry if I don't post often.
Warren and I have never gone on vacation
alone before so one never knows what
we might get ourselves into.
We just might have such great adventures
hiking and sightseeing that we
pass out in deep sleep
without posting a daily update.
It could happen.
No kiddos to slow us down.
I have visions of us white water rafting,
taking a picturesque river cruise,
visiting a historic site (or five),
Poking through antique shops,
Taking in a free jazz concert in a town square,
picnicking on the shores of a great serene lake.
We might do one or more of those things.
But in any case....
we'll enjoy the change of pace.
See you later!
