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.

  1. You say,”sometimes a day of nothing can actually be about everything”

    So true.

    Vinalhaven sounds like a wonderful place.

    1. 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!

      1. ….amen to that Jenna

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