It’s our second winter relaxing in Flagler Beach, Florida. We’re definitely not missing the snow storms and frigid nights of Prince Edward Island. Here we enjoy the magnificent beach with the pelicans soaring in a row over the surf, walking the dogs on the boardwalk along the inter-coastal waterway, golfing, and volunteering at a local thrift shop and cat sanctuary.
Of course, our writing continues … albeit slowly. Michael is working on his memoir and I am putting the finishing touches on an anthology I have been stressing over for 10 years. (It’s time to move on.) As yet, we haven’t picked up a paint brush!! But we are visiting some amazing galleries and I did pick up an incredible painting of a egret at a funky consignment shop.
Time here passes slowly and peacefully, with the biggest anxiety whether we want to bike to Sally’s Ice Cream Parlour or “the new place.” Life is good, yet we are anxiously awaiting spring … then we will be back on Panmure Island, the little place which has quickly become “home.” We look forward to planting our big garden, helping out at the Third Annual Plein Air Festival in Montague, and meeting our first guests: a couple from England and a young woman from Ontario.
It will be a wonderful summer at Satori Artist Retreat!
