I can't believe you're home! These pictures are great, the water town looks so beautiful.

I'm sure it must be strange to be back after such an amazing adventure.

I think your conversations have to be wierd. "What have you been up to?" "Oh nothing, just been around the world for last several months. You?"

I hope that your adjustment back has been smooth.

I am so glad you got to go, what a life!!

So does it feel like it was all a dream?

A friend of mine in Tulsa asked about your blog. "What's up with your friend?"

I told him and he was blown away.

Now, it's time to visit Muleshoe and Post and find their beauty.
