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.”
Christmas is alive and well in Savannah
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.
Our New Home
Next stop Savannah for a month of walks in the park, gardens, Spanish moss, beautiful architecture, fabulous food and, of course, some southern hospitality.

After what seemed like weeks of packing the moving van arrived to take all of our belongings to storage for however long it takes us to find a new home.
Now, nothing left but memories and echoes, so sad.
After much soul searching we have decided to sell our beloved cottage.
Jardin del Colibri
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.
A fun get together with friends on Hood Canal led us right into September.
