Yep. This is so true.
We had so much we wanted to see and do. One of our favorite sports was taking a drive. Even just in Oregon there are so many places that neither of us has visited. Once he retired, we voted him the travel planner. He'd look online and talk to others then say "wanna go look at Oregon ghost towns?" And so we did.
The mid-Eastern section of Oregon is not very populated. I think we drove 8 hours without passing another car! Huge farms and cattle ranches. The ghost towns were disappointing as it was usually just two buildings that were abandoned and ghostly looking. (Yes, he bought a couple of books on the topic ... the photos were shot from the only angle possible to entice you to come visit).
Even in Maui, during the hot part of the day, we would plan a little driving adventure. He loved taking photos ... so often we'd pick a theme. Old churches. Beaches. Cemeteries. Sunset. Waves. Flora and fauna. Secluded villages. Treacherous one lane roads. Yes. I have over 10,000 of his photos!
Being sad and missing him, and our fun together, always ends on a happy note. Some days it takes longer to get to the happy part. I have to be honest and say we really did have a fun relationship. Despite our many disagreements!!! Even though one of us thought seriously about divorce at least once every few years. Over the silliest of things!
So glad I stuck around for the finale. I sure do miss this guy.
