|We're in a pretty, private part of Sharon's yard.|
|Gary, John's brother, was a landscaper and you can see the beauty of his efforts in his|
yard even though he has been gone for nearly a year already.
We have taken time each day to drive around this area where John was a child and a young adult. This is his first chance to re-explore "home" since leaving Canada over two decades ago. I'm loving hearing his stories.
Everywhere we go, we see ducklings, experience the native wild fruits and take in the beauty of the scenery.
|Ducklings are everywhere we go.|

Our transition has been and is slow but we continue to remind ourselves that we haven't just switched "states." We're in a new country that has coin dollars, kilometers, meters, litres, different banking systems, more expensive everything it seems. We have to remember to give ourselves a break and to enjoy the journey.
Where are you now?
