I have lived in the UK for most of my life, but when young I definitely had wanderlust and even ended up living in South Africa for several years which was a wonderful experience. I now look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling.

  1. I have never been to America, but film and TV have made it feel so familiar.
    The sun is out here today too. Don’t know for how long.
    Best wishes, Pete. x

    1. Sun out here too Pete, after heavy showers earlier on. Still got that cold wind hanging around though which makes outdoor pursuits unpleasant. I think I am glad that I haven’t bought a dog yet.

      1. I bet you are. We had twelve hours of relentless freezing-cold rain last night, with gale-force winds driving it. The short journey to Swaffham for our Chinese meal felt like being on a small boat in mid-Atlantic! 🙂

    1. I think SD is such an easy city to walk around and so many different areas to discover. Little Italy is probably my favourite, there is a lovely deli there.

        1. Yes, there are some good restaurants. And some not so good…

          I do recall sharing an enormous margarita cocktail with the OH somewhere in Seaport Village. Luckily we were on foot as I am sure we must have drunk half a bottle of spirits!

    1. You have a brother in New Jersey? What are you waiting for? I must admit that the US is one of my favourite countries for driving around.
