I got to go visit my sister for the solar eclipse! She lives only two hours away from the path of the totality, so I made a miniature vacation out of it. It’s also the first time I’ve gotten to visit her since she moved away from Texas. My cousin and a good friend of his also came out for a visit.
My sister nabbed the special glasses ahead of time online. It’s a good thing too; they were in high demand and sold out everywhere (and I’m sure you saw the news articles about fakes floating around).
My cousin was wearing an odd shirt that let you draw on it with a silver sharpie, and he asked me to draw an eclipse! He wore it the day of the event, and then afterward I added the date and we all signed it and took a picture with it to commemorate the event. It was a little goofy, but sweet.
Georgia was so lovely (and so green!!!). After the eclipse we drove for a bit to some falls my sister knew about, just in a park in a secluded area.
By the way, the next eclipse will take place April 8, 2024, and the totality will be over Texas! My sister said “We can take our kids!” Neither of us have kids yet. Hah. Hah hah.
