    Beautiful photos and stories! I’d love to be standing in that river. :)

      Thanks, Cathy! I know what you mean. Me too! It’s really hard to resist. At least I got to feel the current with my hands!!

    Looks beautiful! I’m so sorry you were stranded for that time – and very glad your son was able to pick you up. I’m sure it’s an awesome feeling to not have to explain yourself, a fantasy I also have (but yet to have come to pass; someday, though!). Your family seems like great people. You deserved to have an wonderful, relaxing, happy time, so I’m happy it ended that way. And I’m surprised your artwork didn’t medal! I’m sure next time it will. :) You make me want to take a road trip now!! Your descriptions of everything were so vivid, it’s like I was right there with you and Romeo. Thanks for sharing.

    I love reading everything you write Maria, you’re so descriptive, I feel as though I was right with you, living, seeing and feeling what you were experiencing. I wanted to jump in my car and come rescue you and Romeo, even though I live in Philadelphia. Mike and Kelly are a handsome looking couple. I wish them good health and happiness. I look forward to your next post. I hope you are well rested by now.

      Welcome, Donna, and thank you for this lovely comment! It made my evening to know someone way back in Philadelphia was moved by my words to come rescue us! As with all difficult experiences, I think it turned out for the best that I didn’t go on with the person I thought we would be traveling with. Thank you, too, for your well wishes for Mike and Kelly. I can’t help but agree they are a handsome looking couple. :) So glad you are reading along with me.

    Hi Maria,
    It’s shock when you are sure all is settled that your carefully and thoroughly made plans are no more. I can feel outraged in this situation and ready to argue and stamp my feet!!! Thankfully I’ve matured somewhat and instead tend to recover much more quickly and grasp instead at gratitude that for whatever reason, something new and better would now unfold and it always does…just like it did for you.
    Hugs, Deborah

      Thanks, Deborah. It’s not always apparent instantly, but you are absolutely right. :)

    Now here’s another coincidence. I live in Portland. For me it seems like little bits and pieces have somehow brought us together. Your thoughts?

      Oh I bet they have. :) I’m a big believer in that sort of thing. We’re “neighbors,” as are some of my other readers. My son and his wife live in Portland. Every now and then I get over there, as you’ll see from my blog posts. Perhaps the next time that happens we might meet! I just signed up for your blog. :) Took a quick look–loved the paragraph about finding a zucchini the size of a small dog, the one that’s always forgotten. :) Gotta go make a cake again, in hopes of posting it before Thanksgiving. . .thanks Lisa
