59 degrees w/ 3 mph winds
My mother leaves today….it’s been 55 years since she first stepped foot on Seguin and today will be her last day to stand on this beautiful place…a place of History, our history….a place of Beauty….a place so beautiful that it stays with you your entire life!

My sister woke with a migraine…this is something she has had to deal with her entire life….we gave her the drugs needed and put her back to bed, but with a houseful of folks…not sure if she is able to sleep, even with us being quiet…so outdoors we go.

Breakfast….yep…Blueberry Pancakes and sausage patties…with the Maple syrup Anne gave us as well as the Hickory smoked syrup Raymond made back in Oklahoma.
Everyone is out on the porch soaking in….everything!
We have to spend what little time we have with my family until we take them to the cove to meet Ethan. They fly back to Texas tomorrow.
We think we are going to start taking our things down to the Donkey Engine House so we will be better prepared for Monday.
Our overnight guest arrived and it was Kim…one of my WW! I got to meet her husband and their friends.
Wasn’t expecting Ethan to have a group of visitors today, but that’s ok….lots of first timers! Picnics all over the yard...People talking with momma about her life here on Seguin and I’m loving listening to her tell the stories…back in the day.

Dinner…Spaghetti w/ Meat sauce, garlic cheddar toast, dump cake for dessert! We will be leaving some food for the next people…I overbought for my family…I didn’t want them to get hungry.
|Lots of individual boats in the cove|
Just found out from my internet provider that I have till midnight or I have to purchase another month…don’t think one more blog is worth $50.00….so with that said this is my LAST blog….I can blog till midnight!
We leave Monday at 1:30…I will be saying “Good Bye” to this place…and I will be crying, which I’m trying not to at this moment!
I want to THANK all the F.O.S.I.L. members for making us feel welcome.
Thank you to Cyndy, you talked to me many times before we left Texas, you came and showed us “how” to live out here, you invited us into your home, I’ve spent many nights there, you continued to “Be There” for us…calling, getting things we needed, etc….
Thank you Ken and Dot for your generosity, for letting us spend the night at your home, for calling me to see if I needed anything out here on this island…and so much more.
Thank you to all “my” Wednesday Warriors….I am so impressed with all the work you have done while we were here and all the work I know that still needs to be done. Jeff, Ken, Rick, Tom, Kim, Cyndy, Anne and many others!
Thank you to Deb for making us feel so welcome, for checking in on us, for being in charge of this wonderful organization.
Thank you Anne…you will never know how much you helped us…thanks for My Birthday Cake, the tomatoes, the syrup, and much more.
Thank you to Catherine who put up with me and “my” way of doing the inventory/visitors logs/gift shop sales…always making sure we knew about upcoming overnight guest.
Thank you Nat for what you do with all the inventory, keeping me going with all my wares to sale!
Thank you to Ethan (& Pepper)….we put our lives in your hand each and every time…you rearranged your schedule to help our family come out to enjoy Seguin, you got us to and from shore weekly to get all our supplies…you let my brother borrow a fishing pole to play along the beach…and so much more.
I know there are folks that I will wake up in the middle of the night upset that I forgot to mention you by name…so many wonderful people in the organization…Thank You!
We will miss you Seguin…
Larry and T’Ann
