When people ask how long we’ve been at this assignment, it seems like we’d always say, “Oh, we just got here.” It’s strange to think that now we are at the halfway point, or maybe even a little past the halfway point of being here. There’s still a lot I want to do at this assignment before we leave. In some ways, I think we do the most exploring and traveling when we’re at a place for a short time. It’s probably because we realize that we have limited time and we try to pack everything in that we want to see and do. I’ve made a “to-do” list of some things specific to this area. (For the record, it’s nice to have a “to-do” list that doesn’t have “laundry” or “cleaning” anywhere on it!) Here are some of the things on it: - Visit the National Park that’s not too far away - Eat at the steakhouse in town - Have a picnic lunch in the park downtown - Go on one of the nature tours sponsored by the park service - Get a group of friends to go to the new wine bar that just opened - Go to one of the art shows in town And finally, I want to take more pictures. It wasn’t until someone asked if I’d contribute pictures for a military couple’s farewell album that I realized that I have so few pictures here that I'm almost embarrassed. I’m going to try to make my camera work overtime. After all, I’ll need some sort of evidence that we were actually here! What’s on your “to-do” list of where you live?
