St Thomas – Flora and Fauna

View of Palm Tree

On my last post, I shared pics from my recent trip to St Thomas.  Today, I’m sharing a few more.             After such a rough winter on the mainland, it was so nice to see so many flowers! A first time visit to the Great House botanical garden was a nice surprise […]

Trip to St Thomas

Bluebeard's Castle

This winter’s weather has been ridiculous – we even had two ‘episodes’ in Atlanta!  So, a March trip to St Thomas was even more welcome this year.  Two college roomates were meeting me from the Northeast for a girls’ week.  For the past few months, we would text each other, during each snowstorm, with the ‘countdown’ to our trip.  We had a wonderful time.

Provence Markets

Spices at a Provence Market

When I win the lottery, I’m going to spend six month in Provence going to markets. They are just fabulous!!  — spices, fish, cheese, fruit, tomatoes, olives…… You just want to buy it all and cook for days! On my recent trip, I visited for five days -a tease I know. We went to several markets, […]
