Back From The Bahamas!

We're back from the Bahamas!

Lots of stories and pictures to share in the coming weeks. I'll need to get cracking and pull some blog posts together.

But in the meantime, I thought I'd show you one of the things that made me smile when we were in Marsh Harbour. This plaque is from a memorial garden. I love how it describes this lovely lady as having been the town's chocolate cake maker and how she spent her life caring for others. So sweet!


What would you like to be remembered for? What are some of the most interesting grave stones or memorials you've seen?

  4. So glad you have been out enjoying life, looking forward to hearing more about it! Since both my Mother, and Father, and extended families came from the same area, the local cemetery is filled with my history, and is a fascinating visit.

  5. Welkome back to normalcy and blogging. :-) I hope you had a fab time in the Bahamas. Missed you on the last IWSG day. If I could inspire anyone to live a life less ordinary, then that’s what I’d like to be remembered for.

  6. So glad you had a good time and got back safely!

    One of my favorite tombstones had
    Here Lies "Joe Smith"
    Who died over a woman's honor.
    She wanted to keep it.

  7. Hi Ellen, I was wondering what happened to stop you from writing interesting blog posts. I'm sure you had a fantastic time. Nice to be back on the water even though your palace is still on the hard.
    Blessings to the pair of you, Geoff in South Africa.

    1. Thanks, Geoff. It was a bit bittersweet - nice to be on the water, but it would have been so much nicer to have done it on our boat.

  10. Welcome back! You were missed.

    I'd love to think that I've made a difference in some way, at least to my students. If my books have touched someone, so much the better.
