A Splash of Color

Island People

A splash of color – Flowers for Ms Barbara just because.

Today was another one of those easy going days

I pulled the grille back out and cooked up some steaks.  Ms Barbara cooked up a bunch of opinions and mushrooms to go with them.  The perfect meal.

Then we got to thinking back to where we have been over the years.  Specifically, the islands we’ve been to in the past.

This was our first island visited.

Barb on board with friends we met that day.  I wonder where they are today?

This was our second island.  The park we stayed at here was definitely a work in progress.  Checking internet reviews of the park today I understand it is just as rough as it was three years ago.

From Cedar Island we went to Oracoke Island.  

From Oracoke Island we went to the Outer Banks

Along the way the water got a bit rough.

Oh yea, it got really rough!

Moving up the coast to Maine yet another Island we visited.

The Visitor Center.  Among the many wonderful things I remember about this trip one stands out in particular – when we got ready to leave the car refused to start!  This is when we learned quite by accident one of its funny quirks.  The same thing has since happened again and again but this time we no longer panic because we know now what to do.

This is of course our latest cruise to an island.

Across the waters of Mobile Bay to Dauphin Island.

Each trip, each island, each so full of many special memories.  But now let me ask you Do you think we can truthfully call ourselves Island People!

So much for our day on The Road of Retirement.  We hope you had as great a day as we did.  We’re taking each day one day at a time and enjoying to the fullest each one that God gives us.

Thanks for stopping by today.  We always appreciate your company and your comments. Keep safe, keep healthy, enjoy the days that God gives you.

These are the voyages of  Elvira and her two intrepid travelers.  Our continuing mission: to explore as many new states as possible, to seek out new acquaintances and make new friends, to boldly go where we have never been before.

See you on down the road!


  1. Beautiful flowers Ms. Barbara. “Island people”? Why not? I think Island living or just visiting is a calming feeling. Hey, I’m finally caught up!! Enjoy your travels.
