I was staring out into the backyard here then it hit me: where is the water?
I don't know where the ocean is frm LLS's home!!!
I know where the water is all the time at my home. I drive by it, I smell the salt air, I see signs.
In NC, I am not oriented. I can't find the ocean. I can't find stuff at the grocery store. I write down direction but can't find where I'm suppose to be.
Imagine how tough it is for evacuees in strange towns. If I ask my LLS or LSiL for directions to a place four times in two days, they smile and tell me again. They draw maps.
This business of not knowing where things are in grocery stores wears me out.
(I asked my LLS and the water is hundreds of miles to my right. whew!)
Why can't I smell salt water here? Where are the 'gulls and pelicans?
