I wish I could have traversed the world during the
Golden Age of travel.
The accoutrements of journeying included pretty suitcases and hatboxes, steamer trunks, leather Gladstone bags, a soft leather handbag. Fitted coats, a silk blouse, and high heeled 'court' shoes. A soft felt cloche hat pulled over a shiny Marcel Wave style, seamed lisle stockings, a choker of real pearls, and delicate buttoned kidskin gloves. Elegance was paramount as ladies boarded ocean liners to cross the pond or sail around the world.
Well, enough day dreaming about the good old days. I'm off on a trip to the islands! I'll be wearing shorts, a tee shirt, comfy sandals, and hauling the trusty wheeled duffel bag. I have just one last American state left to visit, and on Wednesday I'll be on my way there via San Francisco. Meeting up with Paula, and friends Kim and Rob, and on Friday we'll be heading to.............HAWAII!
I plan to keep in touch with you while away as long as the Internet is available - if you don't hear from me though you'll know the reason.
Oh, almost forgot, the very best part, Bob gets to come with me on this trip. He'll watch out for me while we whale watch, tiptoe over lava rocks, climb volcanoes, and go snorkeling........and do come back later to see what we hope to be doing on Thursday in San Francisco, something really exciting.......before heading out across the blue Pacific!
