this trip...

started out like any other trip...we left early in the morning, this big city cold and grey.
The flight seemed long.  I was getting restless.  And then we landed in came our sweaters and out came our sunglasses.  

Back in the sun at last...

We played on the beach just outside our lovely home.  We played and played and soaked up the sun...

and when we got too hot, we hopped in our little plunge pool, complete with a was heavenly.

We watched the most amazing sunsets every night...each one better than the last.

We even made a few friends along the way...

On the last day, our friends had to return to New York (not the ones above...actual friends), and D and I found ourselves all alone in our big beach house for our very last night in paradise...

So we took our last walk on the beach, and watched the boats one last time.  As we sat listening to the breeze stir the palm trees and the waves lapping up on the shore, D said he had a question for me...
"Well???" He asked...

I said yes!

And then we lived happily ever after...

This trip was definitely not like any other trip.  It was the perfect trip.
