All Good Things Must Come to an End

We spent the last day of our vacation relaxing. We were in the pool by 9:00. Well, most of us were, anyway. Autumn slept in until about 10:00. Grandma sat on the deck and read and watched us swimming. We played water volleyball for several hours before lunch. Can you believe that the entire family played against Verne and he still won?

After lunch we went to the souvenir shop and Grandma bought all of the kids and Verne a t-shirt. She bought me a blown glass dolphin, and one for herself.

We went to the beach, but didn't stay long in the water. It was chilly!

After we left the beach, we went to the Barefoot Quilter where I bought ten fat quarters of pretty fabric. Yea!!!

We came home and showered, and I started laundry. Verne cooked an excellent supper of pancakes, eggs, sausage, bacon, and juice. Mmmmm. We even have leftovers for breakfast.

We've been busy tidying the house, sweeping out the van, and packing. We have a long drive ahead of us tomorrow, so we'll be in bed early tonight.

It sounds like you had a nice last day. I'm sorry it must end. I hope your drive home goes smoothly!

I always hated that last day, even though I looked forward to my own bed. You are taking home wonderful memories and I look forward to your next trip, maybe on my island. :-)

Went to Ocracoke today and thought of you all. Found the house that looks just like mine and got to go in. Turns out the owner and I are first cousins about 8 generations back!

Have a safe trip home.

For me, there's always a bit of sadness on the last day of vacation - but the closer it is to the end, the more I long for my own bed!

This is so cool! I'm so happy you got to meet a fellow blogger. That is my dream! I also enjoyed reading each of your children's accounts of your vacation. Lovely!
