Harbour Town


Thursday 25th August

In past times, towards the end of August, we would normally be on our way back north from Florida, stopping off at Hilton Head Island. 

On this day, three years ago we spent the afternoon at Harbourtown; you, me and Dad. We played on the tree swing, sat in rocking chairs, climbed to the top of the lighthouse, ate ice cream, wandered through the shops and looked at all the boats in the marina.

The tree swing ~ a relaxing place in the shade

The top of the lighthouse has fabulous views

Flags and rocking chairs; reading among the gnarly trees

Would that we were all sitting on those chairs, right now, enjoying our ice creams. That would be just perfect.

If I close my eyes

You’re there with us

Smiling, chatting, laughing

Asking for money to buy another book

Walking, exploring, content

You’re there with us

If I close my eyes.


Love you forever, my Angel.

Sweetheart, precious son.
