Tracy, it was such a surprise! Although only a 40 minute drive, I hadn’t heard of the park until that week. A tropical paradise! I took my grandchildren and a friend’s 5-year-old son. It was the same week my dog passed and was also the children’s spring break. I’d plan an overnight trip with them that was canceled due to our dog. This park was a last minute substitute that turned out to be a stunning surprise. It was a very special and healing day for us.

I was always a writer but lived in a bookkeeper’s body before I found Medium and broke free — well, almost. Working to work less and write more.
