Travel is my passion and Bill Bryson said it best, “To my mind, the greatest reward and luxury of travel is to be able to experience everyday things as if for the first time, to be in a position in which almost nothing is so familiar it is taken for granted.”


Savannah, Georgia

Even though we planned to wait until after the holidays to look for homes one dropped into our laps and the deal to too good to pass up so just days before leaving on our month long trip to Savannah we closed on this house, changed the locks and left town.

Next stop Savannah for a month of walks in the park, gardens, Spanish moss, beautiful architecture, fabulous food and, of course, some southern hospitality.

A Day at the Zoo

Two of my granddaughters joined us for a day at the zoo.  Lots of new babies this year but the stars of the show were the new lion cubs; so cute.  Here they are piled up napping with one left on guard.Nap time for the cubs


A fun get together with friends on Hood Canal led us right into September.
