FLORIDA Update

This vacation in warm weather continues...

Alan had a great week sailing with the guys...even if it rained a few times and the wind was strong and in their faces or nonexistent and some other tribulations boaters face.

And I had a lovely, leisurely, connecting week with my brother and sister-in-law...activities like the art class and ikebana exhibit (last two entries) and movies, bicycling, eating, shopping, etc....and chatting more than ever -- about politics and economics, books, friendships, art, and family and neighborhood memories. A special time.

And now, Rebecca has joined us for a week and we are back at the marina at Bahia Honda State Park (the Keys). Although the snorkel/tour boat hasn't gone out for days due to high winds and chop, my intrepid boaters have taken Dream On out this afternoon to test the waters.
So I decided to stay land-based, a walk on the beach and this break on the Roadtrek to write to you all.

How are things back home? What are you up to?

sounds like a lovely few days to be sure! I'm preparing for my book club (supposed to be working ...) which is Thursday evening. We're discussing The Bean Trees by Barbara Kingsolver. Have you read anything worth talking about lately?

I haven't gotten around to blogging about my reading...
recommending a recent read, The Elegance of the Hedgehog (originally a french award winner; tale of two overly intelligent females -- a parisian concierge and a 12-year old.) Would love to read what you think.

13 Reasons Why
a teen book about suicide and again, I'd like comments about it especially from women younger than me.
