my first instameet

my friend missy and i 
went
 down the shore
 to meet up with other instagram fanatics
for my 
first
instameet

we got there
 fashionably late
 actually
 it was a lot past fashionable
 but
 no one minded

 we wandered the sandy hook park on our own
 taking pix
 i will share the photos i took over at through my eyes
 before
 we headed to the lighthouse
 where we found the IG instameet group
 then 
we wandered down to the beach



it was fun to put faces and real names to people 
who
 up til now
 were
 just screen names 
posting some really fine photos

 it was interesting
 to find out
 how right or wrong 
my perceptions of them were

 in one instance
 a woman
 i was 
sure 
was in her 20s 
turned out to 
be
 'practically' 
my age

 in another instance
 someone i thought was older ended up being a lot younger
 everyone 
was 
as nice as i expected them to be



 missy owns a dog walking business
 she brought along a 'client' 
whose people
 often leave him with her for the weekend

 charlie brown
 is
 one of the sweetest little dogs
 i have ever met
 i am not always a fan of small dogs 

why

 because
 very often
 they are
 high strung
 yappy 
spoiled 

 charlie
 is
 none
 of
 those

 he loves people
 when
 missy would disappear
 because
 she was being adventurous
 climbing down
 to
 get closer to the waves
 he would be very concerned



 when we went to find restrooms
 i left him with her in the car
i got back
to see him
 looking out the window
 anxiously
 i was touched he missed me

we debated
 waiting for sunset 
after 
an internal dialog
 missy decided
 we'd head home
 we got to the city
 in time
 to see
 the sky and the river
 become
 the same amazing color 

here
 see 
for 
yourself

  2. That's so lovely. I'm glad you got a chance to meet up in real life. I've met one or two bloggers but haven't really investigated this meet-up thing. Guess maybe, past you and the few people I adore, I'm not too interested. :)
