Welcome reader to my blog - a mixture of this and that. Now that we are living in a retirement community in downtown Columbia, MD my personal gardening activities are somewhat curtailed. I still enjoy visiting gardens, reading, watching wildlife on my walks, traveling, and occasional food commentary. Please leave a comment if you feel inspired to do so. I read every one of them.

Traveling Again

In April Dan spent two weeks in Puerto Rico with Church of the Brethren Disaster Assistance rebuilding homes damaged by the hurricane in 2017.  I spent that time in Arizona visiting my brother.  

Today we are headed north to New Hampshire to visit daughter Emily, her husband and our two granddaughters.  We haven't seen them since the Christmas holidays.

We will experience early spring again up there which we both missed here when we were away in early April.  

We will get some quality time with granddaughters #1 & #2, ages 5 and 2.5 years.

The nice thing about where we live now is we can just lock up and go.  We do tell the concierge of our days away so they don't worry about where we are. We don't worry about the security of our home or trees falling across the driveway or whether the house looks deserted or stopping the mail.  You know what I mean.

Our home used to be called Vantage House.  It has a new name now: The Residences at Vantage Point.  It has a new website too.

It is a really nice place to live but visiting family is especially nice too.
