Farewell to Tilghman Island

Six months certainly does go by quickly!    There were some weeks when time seemed to move very slowly on this island.   Frustrated by a lack of nearby hiking (okay, make that lack of nearby anything), I struggled to find ways to keep myself energized and fit.

The lack of distractions DID force me to focus on completing my manuscript “Moments of Panic, Moments of Peace”, so I can say “Mission Accomplished” on that score.   As we speak, query letters are on their way to agents and small publishing houses.    Should that approach yield no results, I will investigate self publication.

As time passed, I did develop a (grudging) appreciation for this place; primarily through bird watching and sea glass hunting.

From here I head back to Pennsylvania (more on that in my next post).   In the meantime, here are a few of my favorite shots from my “Time on Tilghman”.

  1. I suspect why these docks and boardwalks appeal to me. Please keep us posted on your book.

  2. Looking forward to seeing it published!
