The Husbear is drawn to the ocean for some reason. #latergram
Reclining on the beach, listening to the waves crash on the shore, drinking adult beverages, and enjoying the company of my besties.
It’s Sunday! The first day of a little vacation.
Our buddy Dwayne arrived at the house bright and early at 8 this morning. Hey, 8am is early to me! The Husbear and I packed up our stuff into his Jeep Wrangler (named “Radar”) and headed over to pick up our buddy Mike at his house.
We were on the road headed south by 9, with me at the wheel of Radar.
We arrived in Mobile, Alabama and secured a hotel at around 9:30pm.
Tomorrow we plan on getting up and heading over to the battleship for a tour, then head east along the coastline until we find a nice beach to lounge upon.
It’s odd. To be here. And on this date. Because one year ago today, the Husbear and I were just getting settled into a different hotel here in Mobile. Only to be awakened in a few hours with a telephone call from Dwayne telling us Tory had died.
It’s been a… challenging… year since then to say the least. I still can’t imagine being in Dwayne’s shoes. But I’m glad we are here. Tonight. Together. Our group. Our family: Dwayne, the Husbear, Mike, and myself.
Until next time...
I recommend against brushing your teeth then taking a drink of cranberry juice. The more you know…
