Day 273 – Getting There Is Half The Fun

Art Apple - Day Two Hundred Seventy ThreeWho cares what happens when we get there, when the getting there has been so much fun? – Will Schuester

Today was wonderful but if I told you the details you’d be bored to tears so I’ll refrain – well sort of. To sum it all up as succinctly as possible, we arrived  in Rockland to get on the 10:30 am ferry to Vinalhaven and the line was epic.

. . .never had anyone ever seen it so long. . .

There wasn’t any chance we’d get on it or the 1pm and didn’t look good for the 2:45pm either which meant a day sitting in line, an enormous amount of talking about how epic the line was and some wandering around town. It was a day of “getting there”  and I loved it. It may have had a tiny bit to do with my niece Parker who’s four and her two year old little brother, Beckett.

Being – Aunt Jenna –  is not someone I get to be too often since I never had children. She feels like me but different – more alive, more allowed to express wonder and discovery and silliness. What a joy and a gift; sometimes a day of nothing can actually be about everything.

Until tomorrow.

    So true.

    Vinalhaven sounds like a wonderful place.

    It is a wonderful place Vic. I’m so blessed to be able to come here for a bit each year – perfect timing this year to re-charge the batteries to help get me through these last few months of apples!

    You know I’m rooting for ya. The rest of those apples will be a walk in the park.
