A lifetime well lived
MJ mother had some health problems that prevented her from walking hours on the beach in retirement. That was her dream. We decided to travel before health issues captured our bodies...just in case. We've had no regrets with the amazing things we've seen. We are thrilled with each installment of your blog, the adventures you are having and a life well lived. This trip sounds perfect. Enjoy the exquisite silence.

What a life!
