Dropping in on a Whim and Starting Over

“I am tired of driving,” Ed said as he unexpectedly veered off Route 87 and started down the two-lane road. That’s how we ended up in Ticonderoga, New York and parked in a Wal-Mart. At the end of the day when we land in a Wal-Mart, we typically replenish our fresh foods. Ed grabs a newspaper and reads for an hour on the bed with his feet propped up on three pillows. I make dinner. Such was the routine today except for one variation.

Just before sunset, Ed suggested we take a ride. We found the Ticonderoga ferry landing – the very landing we had crossed over from Vermont to New York in October 1997 on our honeymoon! We could see Vermont across the water on the moonlit evening. Vermont - the place we had planned to spend our summer. There was Vermont! We were starting over!
