Back in Koukouleika after a whirlwind trip to France and the UK to deliver Cookie to his forever family. Cookie monster was the best travel partner—first driving to Thessaloniki, then flying to Paris, another long car ride to Normandy, a four hour ferry ride, and finally to his new people. He just went along with the flow. I am pretty sure that he knew what was going on. When he looked at me with those flirtatious brown eyes I sensed a bit of sadness which made me cry every time, It wasn’t so easy saying goodbye to this special creature, but I am thrilled that he is with people who already adore him. The letting go triggered some deep down grief that rises to the surface now and again.
What an amazing accomplishment in getting Cookie to her new home. Perhaps you'll get a chance to visit her in the years to come.
I didn't realize you would not get back in your house before winter sets in. Don't worry about finding a place to camp for the winter - something good is in the cards - I can feel it.
