In just over two weeks we will be moving from our island home back to the town where Joe and I grew up.
So much of living here on this rather tiny sort of an island has been light and shadow. I have lost a step-daughter and gained two beautiful grandchildren. My oldest daughter has earned not only her Bachelors degree but also her Masters. Joe’s sons have grown from little boys who would spend the entire day at the beach with us into teenagers who are beginning to learn how to make their own way in the world.
We won’t be going far from the Atlantic and our new flat will be just up the street from the harbour. We’ll still be able to see the water from the living room.
