Early in April I traveled with some of my fellow retirees to Savannah, Beaufort, and Charleston for an early taste of Spring! Trees were leafing out, azaleas were blooming and the marshes and Spanish moss added nostalgic atmosphere!
How to save the memories? In anticipation of the trip, I put together a journal with maps and various papers – graph paper for notes, water color paper, drawing paper, plus a pocket in the back. It worked very well for notes during the trip. Once I got home I added photos, some water color sketches from my photographs, and tipped in more maps and brochures. I’m pleased with how it came out. It’s been a handy tool for remembering all that we did, and for sharing the details with friends and family.
