time for reflectionI cannot believe almost another month has flown by. I squeezed in a quick trip to Arlington and Annapolis, had a lovely time catching up with a couple of good friends and met their other friends who live in a nice suburban woody area in lush green Annapolis. Add to that cherry blossom season and I was in heaven. I would wake up in the morning before my friends woke up and sneak downstairs to sit on their front porch, dog in tow, and just rock lightly on their swinging chair while I listened to the birds chirping their morning songs madly in the sunshine. Ah, bliss, bliss, bliss.
I had mentioned wanting to go to anywhere near the seashore, so they took me to meet their friends over in Maryland and we drove over Chesapeake Bay and onto the eastern shore. This couple had a boat which I had hoped to get onto, but they were trading it in for a larger one (25 footer with sleeping cabins so that they could pull up into their slip in Annapolis downtown and sleep overnight. Sweet...) We went to The Big Owl tiki bar for a couple of drinks and then headed over to the Narrows Restaurant (seafood galore) and then off to the Jetty for some live music by a cover band and to people watch. It was so much fun and reminded me again how much I love the ocean.
Prior to the trip, my mother had said she had spoken to someone who had travelled around the world by living in different cities and working there. She suggested that I do the same if I was getting bored. I thought, why not? What am I waiting for? Clearly not to settle down here! I DO love the eastern seaboard... particularly Boston and DC. So perhaps it's time for a move...? In any case, good motivation to clean up my place a bit and get ready. I just hope that if the job appears and I get it, that my move won't be as sudden as it was when I first moved out east!
