We have friends visiting us this week on Anna Maria Island. We worked with them on the island of Sicily for six years and we remember when they first met. Tom was single at the time and we thought, Manuela and Tom would make a perfect match. Indeed they were -- a perfect match! Two kids, two grandkids, and 35 years later, we're reliving old memories and making new ones on another island -- AMI. Tom and Manuela have been vacationing on AMI for years (it's one of their favorite places) and I certainly have to agree with them on that. We're on a perpetual vacation here. There's something about sun, sand and the ocean that makes you feel like every day is a vacation day. The downside is we never want to go anywhere else. We talk about it, but just don't want to leave our "nest."
After 38 moves in 45 years, I'm perfectly content with staying put. Although deep down inside, I feel like there might be another move left. I guess after all these years on the go makes me feel like being in one place for any length of time is simply impossible. I hope I'm wrong on that because I never want to leave paradise now that we found it!
The beach is calling...until next time,
