Missing Friends

Posted by on September 10, 2009



For the past several days we’ve been anchored here in Cabin Creek Campground in Jacksonville, NC.  We’re spending time with the owners, learning all the daily machinations of the operation, interviewing them, they interviewing us for a possible fit as general managers. Jacksonville is the home of Camp Lejune, the marine base that is the center and basis for the economy of life in these parts.  There will be more about this as we learn the area.  We’re only a brief fifteen minute ride from Topsail Beach and Island, however, the clouds have pre-empted our visits there so far.  While we have much free time to ponder and daydream, I’m finding my thoughts often traveling back to Medora.  I’m missing my recent friends. None of these thoughts center around  the golf course, the retail shops, the musical or the cafes. What comes to the mind’s eye is the people. I find myself thinking of them often and smile at all the interactions, both good and bad, that we’ve had. I love the traveling, the wandering, and the gypsy life. What I realize, however, is the true quality of those meanderings are the people that we encounter, befriend and continue to maintain interaction with in the future. Thank you, all, for enhancing my life.

    This must be the tuffest part of being the Gypsy, uprooting and rerooting, if indeed this is even a word……but, I’m sure you’ll be making new friends soon, and you’re closer to your offspring. And, another notch off your “bucket list” of things to do! Happy exploring!

    Thank you both of you lovely ladies. And if rerooting is not a word, Deb, that’s fine as I know exactly what you’re referring to. And Donna, all i can say is make new friends, but keep the old. One is silver and the other is gold.
    Love you both.
