The husband and I have taken to regular walks lately (and serves double purpose since the dog likes regular walks as well). This is one of the fantastic advantages to shore duty. He comes home every night, and we can plan regular, boring, but wonderful things. We have the most wonderful conversations on these walks, and remind me of the great connection we still have together. We used to have these types of conversations on our regular trips to Orlando (from Melbourne). We would drive to Orlando to take in one of the many tourist attractions, or to eat at a fantastic restaurant or just because Melbourne, was Melboring!
