This weekend we spent a wonderful weekend on Kelleys Island in Lake Erie. It is such a fun little island, very touristy, but you can see smacklings of locals all around. You have to take a ferry from Ohio to the island during the spring, summer, and fall. Then when the lake freezes over during the winter the only means of transport is /small/ aircraft. The pace of the island is slow. The gardens around the homes are beautiful. Golf carts and bikes are abundant. The water is never far away. The sunsets were glorious. And the soft serve ice cream at Papa T’s was to die for.
We decided it would be a wonderful place to retire. It was a lot of fun touring the island thinking about how life will be in 10, 20, 40 years. I love to dream, especially with the one I love more then life itself. The very soul that is a part of mine. The very person who I get to spend these young-family years with and then the years beyond. The years when it will be just him and me. Where will we live? What will we enjoy doing? How will we have grown even closer together?
How about you? What do you think about when you think of retiring? Isn’t it fun to dream?
