We didn't get to bed last night until after midnight and we were up at 5 a.m. packing for the journey home. Jilda had to work this afternoon, so we had to head on back home early.
As Jilda finished makeup duties, I stepped down to the beach to welcome the new morning. The sky was a breathtaking mixture of amber, orange, gold, blue and black. I shot this photo with the trusty iPhone before shoving off.
We didn't get a lot of sleep, but yet I feel energized. Getting away will do that for you. I'm not sure why we don't get away more often - we just don't.
I learned today of a mis-print in the festival program that showed us playing Monday night and Tuesday night. One of my good friend, Ken and his lovely wife Kayren, trekked down to Orange Beach from Birmingham through torrential rains to see us Monday night. They wanted to surprise Jilda and me. Since we were unaware of the mis-print, we weren't there to play. We felt awful...and, we owe them big time.
I've been writing all afternoon....deadlines looming, but I don't feel stressed. Every now and then, I'll flip through the photos I took and I feel refreshed.
I love vacations, even if they are sometimes too short.


  1. The picture today and the one yesterday are great. I don't know why we don't pause more often to look at the sun appearing and disappearing. It's a miracle.

  2. we are taking your cue and sneaking off ourselves this weekend after my sale. SO need a break!! Glad you had a good time.
