She is protecting my fragile psyche from extreme change, one climate and one life style for another, gradually re-introducing me to the world of being "expat".
Leaving behind the country of one's birth, just at its moment of glory, is almost unpatriotic--almost, but not quite. O, Canada!

Last Friday, I was too busy being captivated by my sweethearts in the Rockies to participate in Follow Me Friday. Well, I'm back to the boat and back to the blogging world.

Follow me and I will follow you back.
