Blogfest Bits

What a place...
Mathews County, Virginia.
Paradise.
Even the wildlife smiles at you.
Majestic.
Always a beautiful vista.
Hospitable.
Magic.

Oh wow!!!! What a trip. Sure wish I could be there enjoying those sites. But instead, I will be staying closer to home I guess. Someday!

MPM, your photos are wonderful!!! I just love your sunset shot...and those adorable dolphins. He is smiling for you. Virginia already feels the loss when you all left.

I am so glad we had a awesome day for the beach party.

I think it's safe to say you got the most wonderful pic of the dolphins I've seen yet. Hard to believe, there they were, right in front of us. Almost surreal.

We got back early this afternoon and I'm probably going to spend the next several days trying to figure out just how in the world to articulate how awesome this trip was and how amazing it was to be able to meet people like you.

I'm off to try and finish uploading the gazillion photos I took and see if I can't attempt to put into words, how wonderful this past weekend was.

OMG! If this is just a taste of what's to come, I can hardly wait for the rest! I really wish I could have gone, but I'm saving up for a trip to NYC in September or October, where I'll hopefully see Daryl AND you & Annie. So, I'll just whimper quietly...

Debbie said...

Just visited the blogs of everyone one who went and I can see you all are spent and at a loss for words to describe how wonderful it was! I'm happy it was perfect in every way :)
