So, not long after Daves death I decided to plan a trip I had been wanting to take for 10 + years, to The Channel Islands for camping,hiking,kayaking and snorkling. I booked it for this month, August, just 11 months after.
Now that I look back on this, I realize that this was a good thing for me to do. It was a focal point to help me to keep going, to have something to look forward to, to somehow honor Daves wishes for me. I went with three other friends. One was a widower friend of mine.
I had a few moments, but they did not stay with me and I was able to process them and move onto the next moment and stay in the day. It was helpful to have another person there who "got it".
