Taking Off

The car is packed
The dogs are sad
Because they can not go

The house is clean
The love note signed
Because we leave Dad too

It's just the girls and kids
With two hubbies thrown in
It's off to the seashore we go

The sea and sand and fish and chips
And tilt-a-whirl and taffy
Wait there for us to find

A four day jaunt of blessings galore
Laughter and joy and good times
This trip we hold so dear, 10 years in a row

  3. Great fun poem. It made me realise how lucky to live 2 minutes from the sea.
