Compass Rose

I'm writing this ahead of time, I'll be on the road later this day.  The Gumbomobile will be loaded up with the essentials and my Wee Lass and we are headed for the Gumbo ancestral lands in southeastern Virginia.  Its a trip I'm looking forward to, for some much needed R & R, and much needed face time with the family.

The compass of the heart ever points to Home.


  1. Yes the compass always does.I learned that a long time ago.It told me that I had to come home to cleveland from Sacramento Ca.

  2. Via con Dios! And don't forget the film for the Holga! ;)

  3. Enjoy it, brother. Relax and refuel.

  4. Happy trails to you, my friend.


  5. I like the title because one of my sailboats was named Compass Rose. Hope that you enjoy the journey to the homestead.

  6. Safe travels Gumbo,
    Post some pics from the homefront, if you will.
    It'd be nice to see Gumbo roots.
    I'm sure the trip will produce a story or two worth posting. Later,

    The Cheeky Daddy

  7. Safe travels, Gumby. I'm doing a family road trip as well at the end of the week.

    Have fun and relax!

  8. enjoy the family...put your feet up
