To paraphrase Robert Browning, this week I've been having
"abroad thoughts from home".
It's time to go travelling again, methinks.
Next week the Senior Partner and I are heading to the States,
Hilton Head Island, SC. to be exact.
Now, I know I don't need to tell those of you who live there
that many areas of the US have been experiencing shall we say "challenging" weather recently.
The long range forecast for HHI during our almost 3 week stay calls for
rain, T storms, a few sunny days, possibly followed by more showers and rain!
My dilemma therefore is what to pack for all eventualities.
I can hear you all shouting, even as I type, "layers".
T shirts; tank tops; long sleeved tunics.
A cosy, knitted sweater; fleece lined gilet; polartec jacket; scarves. Check.
Chinos; sweat pants; jeans.
Maybe I should include a pair of cropped pants too for those hopefully warmer days
and a dressier pair for when we go out to dinner?
Add some comfortable shoes, (I recently discovered TOMS, what a find - love them!)
and Converse All Star dainty zebra sneakers for travelling in.
Along with all the other more mundane items such as underwear, pj's, makeup & toiletries
I'll be packing everything in this suitcase.
Well, you know how confusing it gets
when all those black bags come around together
on the luggage carousel at the airport!
I hope to be able to continue blogging whilst we're away, though it does depend on whether I can figure out how to use the Picasa app on my Kindle Fire HDX!
