If you’ve been following my blog for awhile now, you know I am leaving Canada to return to my homeland of Scotland. Here I sit, down to my last few days here. It kinda’ feels surreal!
This is not a sad occasion, however. Even though it is hard to say farewell to family, friends and loved ones, we have been keeping things upbeat. I’m about to start a brand new adventure!
But sometimes, it’s just as hard to say goodbye to places and the memories of the good times had while at those places. That’s how I felt, as I watched Lake Huron disappear in the passenger side mirror of the truck as we drove up the hill from the Goderich waterfront. I felt a little piece of my heart break off. It was the same leaving Southampton, watching the shoreline from the ends of the streets we passed driving down the highway. I’ll miss the sunrises, sunsets, big ships, Great Blue herons, Bald eagles, cormorants and other shore birds. But I’ll always have the memories of those things stored in my heart, and the photos to remind me I was there.
Have you ever been somewhere, on vacation for example, and it’s your last day or night there, and the sunset (or sunrise) is absolutely spectacular? Like it’s saying goodbye to you, and putting on such a show that it brings tears to your eyes? I have noticed that since childhood, when I went on a week’s holidays with my friend and her parents. I’ve seen it many times since. It was hard, saying goodbye to such a spectacular lake.
Bur soon, my new adventure begins, with not just lakes, but seas, massive river mouths, mountains and castles! I look forward to sharing my journeys and explorations with you all!
