After almost 25 years of going to the Tulip Festival with my friend Jill, today’s day in the park was probably the last. Why? Jill’s moving away. She’s selling her house, and going south — or west – just not north. She’s seeking warmer weather and easier winters.
We brought our tarp and set up camp knowing it was going to rain. We did crossword puzzles and had lunch under our waterproof roof. We didn’t reminisce too much today. We just silently wished the day would never end.
Here’s to new beginnings – for both of us.
