Today I am celebrating the first honest to goodness vacation I have taken since before my father died in August of last year. The past year has been filled with a number of things and involved a great deal of travel and worry and fatigue.
Today, however, I am celebrating the end of the week and the beginning of the weekend, at which time I will insert myself into my (rental) car, check the level of gasoline in the tank, grin at my sister, who is coming with me (it was her idea, actually, and head up north to the pretty harbor of Boothbay, Maine.

This is the sun-filled piece of heaven with which I fell in love back in 1999.
Over the next three days we will be driving around, visiting yarn shops, I'll be taking photos, and we may even go on a whale watch cruise. Whether we see a whale or not, we will certainly be seeing the sea, the rocky coast, feel the breeze in our faces.
And who knows? We may very well see a whale!
How about yourselves? Come join this blog hop and share the little things that make you celebrate! Or just hop about and see what everyone's celebrating - and thank VikLit for starting it!
