Just when you thought it was over! We found a great ending for this America’s Great Loop adventure (or it could be the beginning of the next?) in the lyrics of Jimmy Buffett’s song, Changes in Latitudes, Changes in Attitudes. Here is our rendition of it.
We took off for a weekend this month just to try and recall the whole year.
All of the faces and all of the places, wonderin’ where they all disappeared.
We didn’t ponder the question to long, we were hungry and went out for a bite,
Ran into a looper, got into a stooper, and wound up having docktails all night…..
It’s these changes in latitudes, changes in attitudes – nothing remains quite the same.
With all of our running and all of our cunning, if we couldn’t laugh we would all go insane.
Reading the nav signs in some big chart book, reminds us of the places we’ve been.
Visions of good times that brought so much pleasure, makes us want to go back again.
If it suddenly ended tomorrow, we would somehow adjust to it all.
Good times and riches and great seafood dishes, we’ve had more than we can recall.
These changes in latitudes, changes in attitudes, nothing remains quite the same.
Through all of the islands and all of the highlands, if we couldn’t laugh we would all go insane.
We talk about looping when we’re high on red wine, wish we had our feet in the sand.
So many nights we just dream of the ocean, gosh we wish we were looping again.
Oh, yesterday’s over our shoulder, so we can’t look back for too long.
There’s just too much to see waiting in front of me, and I know that I just can’t go wrong.
With these changes in latitudes, changes in attitudes, nothing remains quite the same.
With all of my running and all of my cunning, if I couldn’t laugh I just would go insane……..
If we couldn’t laugh we just would go insane……….
LOOPERS – If we weren’t all crazy – we would go insane!
Look for our final blog post tomorrow!
