A leisurely afternoon in Oceanport, NJ. Sam is in Heaven. I am in purgatory. Just kidding. It's fun. Not nearly as stressful as Monument Valley. :) Surely there is something here I can use in my writing. Nothing is wasted. Right??
I got honorable mention in first chapter of a novel at the Alabama Writers Conclave. I loved hearing names from areas as far west as Arizona and all around the country. Thank you Alabama for the vote of confidence in my writing ability.
Sitting in a restaurant on the pier at Fairhope eating gumbo for Lunch looking out into the bay. The sunshine looks wonderful. Sam spent his morning reading on a Bench on the beach. Love it!! I never thought the beach was for me. I am a mountain girl. I may have changed my mind. Sam says my mind changes at each new place we go. Maybe!!!!
Fairhope AL on mobile bay for Alabama Writers Conclave. Awards night tomorrow night. Great classes tomorrow.
The French quarters. Beignets and coffee au lait anyone??? Yes thank you!!!!
Went to see the Lone Ranger!! It was so cool to see where we had ridden in Monument Valley just one month ago. For those of you who have heard about my "melt down" story that I had on Sam in Monument Valley while riding horses, perhaps now you can see why!!! For those who did not hear it, Our Navajo guide wanted us to go up a steep, sandy bank along the edge. I melted down, slid off the horse, shook like a leaf, dissolved into tears, sat under a bush, and threatened to walk out of the desert!!! No amount of coaxing by either could change my mind!!! We had to return the way we came, along the rim (scary enough by itself). If I went up that embankment I KNEW I would fall into what looked like the Grand Canyon to me!!! It looked just like the movie showed it to be. I wouldn't take anything for the adventure we had, but "melt down" on him I did LOL. Funny, and entertaining movie. Sam just said , "you would ride up that bank now, wouldn't you?" NOT IN THIS LIFETIME!!!
(I know you guys are feeling sorry for Sam for taking me along!!!). :)
