On the road

Road to a new phase of life (or, in this case, to Jan & Drake's ...)

It’s so appropriate that we should come here first after leaving Chicago.  When we first arrived in the US, in 2007, we spent a blissful week here (the first of many visits).

What a welcome to the Midwest.  And now:  what a farewell.  Total relaxation.  Good company.  Good food.  Nothing particular to do.  Nowhere particular to go.  And nothing to hear but the birds and the wind-chimes, and (in the evening) the occasional coyote and the trains woo-woo-ing in the distance.  All helped, of course, by a freakishly warm and early Spring … it’s still March (OK:  only just …) and we’ve already had lots of ’70-plus’ days, including this one and (apparently) the next several.

Below:  the freakishly early bluebells;  and a relaxing natter in the screen porch.
