My 2 Vacations

I am a lucky girl. I went on two vacations this month. The first was a girlfriend trip. There were 5 of us in a gorgeous high-rise condo in Marco Island, Florida. The view included the Gulf of Mexico on one side and the waterways of Marco Island on the other. What's not to love? I was there from August 10th through the 14th. It was a wonderful time and a nice reminder of how much fun it is to be a girl.

Once I returned my husband and I immediately started packing for our motorcycle trip called the Legacy Run. It raises money for a college scholarship fund for children whose parent was killed in action post 9/11. Many veterans and civilians participate in this great event. The motorcycle ride started in Hutchinson, Kansas. Besides Hutchinson, the overnight stops were in Independence, Missouri. Spencer, Iowa, Austin, Minnesota, Onalaska, Wisconsin, then ending in Minneapolis. We needed and day and a half to get to Hutchinson so our first night was spent in Cameron, Missouri. Yes, I was 15 minutes away from Hamilton, Missouri and the Missouri Star Quilt Co but there was nothing I could do about it because we were with a large group and on a tight schedule. It was torture knowing I was that close. We had a group of 8 motorcycles with us on our route to  Hutchinson. The Legacy Run had 240 motorcycles with 45 passengers in all. It was quite an event. Besides the overnight stops we had rest stops in many cities where the entire town came out to greet us. It was amazing. We were gone from August 17th through August 24th. That was a long time to be gone and I was happy to get home even though I loved every minute of the trip.
