On the ROAD again.


And so our trip ends as it began. . . . . . .

Mega Gratitude to Grandy and Pop-- a.k.a. Maxie and Jerry Dunnam, who have hosted us all week in their Navarre Beach condominium. When you have four children under 5 you can count friends like these on one hand ( or less).

Thanks also to the condo owner who so generously provided us with broadband wifi internet access. That's a mark of the new hospitality of the Kingdom-- free flowing wireless broadband signals.

Special thanks to all 8 of you out there who have taken this journey with us. It's been a blast having you along and a blessing for us to remember in public. Stay tuned. I'm hoping this vacation can sustain the kind of blog joy it has led me to find.

And if you think of it-- say a prayer for us on the 10 hour car ride back today. Big week ahead.

JD, I've been out of web access for the last couple of days...so much vacation has been missed! The tribute to the Tiff was sweet. Ben should show greater appreciation for the ocean of the south! Your poetry is fabulous, JD simply fabulous....You seem to create poetry as easily as you breathe...perhaps the rest of us poet wannabes simply are overwhelmed at your prodiguous (Sp?) production....keep it coming though!
There were only 8 of us who vacationed with you this year?? Gotta get that number up....07 = double digit Walt Blog Family Vacation...maybe you could make t-shirts.
It IS wonderful to have friends who have beach houses....that's how stacey and I have had beach vacations in past years!

What will I read for my daily "laugh out loud moments" now that the Walt family vacation has come to a close? I could hardly wait for the next day to share in the fun, sun and sand and the surf. Thank you JD for sharing the Joy. Even Rick became a regular reader and laughed and laughed.

Thanks J.D., Tiff, and little Walt juniors for such a great time of amusement! And J.D. - the hilarious minute to minute details, and the (I wouldn't be surprised if whipped out just as in a minute) poetry - you rock!
