Looping

1 Feb

When you get right down to it, “looping” (traveling the Great Loop) is a concept that is contrary to today’s human condition. In today’s world, we always seem to be rushing – we set the alarm so we can rush through breakfast, maybe grab a cup of coffee before we rush out the door, quickly fill the car with petrol/gas so we can rush to that meeting/appointment/class/etc. so we have time for a quick lunch…well, you get the gist, don’t ya’?

 travel the loop

So, the odds are that all your life you’ve spent trying to GET somewhere fast. But, while “looping”, think about…all that time you spend on the Loop is simply designed to get you back to where you started…so, why rush?

…the value/joy springs from the journey, not the destination…

    Feel like we are “looping” along with you through the lovely photographs. Is this shot along the intercoastal east of Mobile Bay looking toward Big Lagoon?

      Wow, Martha, you’re good! I took that about a mile east of Lulu’s (have you been there?.

        Every summer for several years; first in a Catalina 30 then a Sea Ray 34. Just a beautiful area that draws you back over and over. Enjoy!

    Carpe diem! The journey is worth it!

    Let us know when you make the Gulf crossing (or Big Bend rounding) and are in the Tampa Bay area. Would love to see you and catch up. We’ll be resuming the Loop from Solomons, MD in late April. Currently in Gulfport, FL at the house.
