Last Day Of Vacation

Well, today is the last day of our vacation. Tomorrow around noon we'll arrive back on Kwaj. Kind of surprisingly, neither of us is terribly excited about it.

Kwaj is small, quiet, low stress, not polluted and has beautiful scenery and fun activities that can be done year-round. I kind of assumed once I got back into the real world of face-paced, traffic, pollution and bad weather that I would want to run back to the comforting arms of Kwaj. I don't.

In fact, while we were on vacation, we purchased a house! An ocean view home 5 blocks from the beach on the Oregon Coast. I've always wanted to live there, it was exciting that my new husband felt the same way. I was in a gift shop with my Mom when a customer asked the shop-keeper how she liked living on the Coast. She remarked that if she didn't have a business there, she wouldn't live there at all. She said it was too inconvenient, that she had to drive an hour to a Wal-Mart and that their grocery store wasn't even a grocery store. She said it was a good place to retire, low crime and relaxed but she preferred more action and accessibility. HA! She should try Kwaj for awhile!

I guess that's what makes the Coast work for us. It provides far more opportunity and accessibility than we are currently used to.

So the plan is we'll finish out our current contracts and then move to our house on the Oregon Coast. That will be roughly April 2011. After that, someone else will have to fill you in on the details of Kwaj life.


Kwajalein Poll

I'm interested in knowing what the "other" is for those of you that selected it in the poll on the sidebar. I couldn't think of other options. If you would, take a moment and post a comment on the "other" way you heard about Kwajalein.

I believe that even if you are logged in you have the option of posting anonymously if you wish. Thank you in advance!
