Fabulous insights- beautiful hummingbirds
Hello Becky and Reuben, hope you are both keeping well on your adventurous travels. You certainly look relaxed. The pictures do illustrate the amazing wonder and variety you are encountering. It is so great to have the opportunity to dip into your experiences so far. How is the near run up to Christmas- dare I ask? None of the familiar commercial aspects we are used to ...I wonder where and how you will celebrate with local customs? In school, the children are gearing up for their Christmas production, this year the 'Magical Jigsaw Puzzle' As you can imagine- the excitement is building...Have a Happy Holiday Season! Take Care, Janet x
