A Week in Pictures

"No Regrets"
Without a laptop for the past 10 days while I was away, this blog's postings came to a screeching halt.  Still, photos were posted on facebook, proof that I was having a wonderful vacation with my sister Anne and her family, first at Emerald Isle, North Carolina, and later three days in Charleston where my nephew Will started classes (today!) at the College of Charleston.

After 18 hours in the car over Sunday and Monday, and then a full work day today, I have barely enough energy to write, so I'll post photos of the past week, and let the images tell the story.  How great is it that this blog serves as a journal of experiences?  All I have to do is look back, and the memories come alive. Here's hoping that this entry proves that to be true as well, when I come back in a month, a year, or five years from now to relive the incredible days that I was so fortunate to spend with my sister and her family.  Thank you Anne and John, for the privilege...

Here we go:
