A FRIENDLY VISIT
The STARS twinkle against the black of the night as I crane my neck to see the almost invisible PLANE fly overhead. I track it by the roar of its engines and can just see the light from the cabin shine out the tiny windows. I raise my HAND and give my best friend a final wave as she flies across the country back to her home and family.
Her visit was a whirlwind of adventures. Being apart for more than 20 years we didn’t waste any TIME catching up, we practically melted our credit CARDS. We enjoyed laughter and tears watching live THEATRE at The Pumphouse. Our skin glowed from the BEE pollen facials we treated ourselves to while reminiscing about childhood antics. We ate out every night, except pizza night when we stay in and watched romantic comedies.
Last weekend we kicked off our shoes and left FOOTPRINTS in the snow from the kitchen to the hot tub while we laid back and soaked our aching muscles from our trek around Vulcan. We didn’t see any ALIENS but had a blast touring the Visitors Centre and the Starship Enterprise replica.
As I watch the plane slip into the night, I know I will remember this visit for many years. I guess it is now my turn to visit her in Halifax. This trip will be hard to top, but we will do our best next time we get together.
