At the Edge of the Orchard

I have just read Tracy Chevalier's most recent release: At the Edge of the Orchard.  This historical novel tells a tale of apples, trees and Western Expansion. 

Love her writing: worth a read.

Recent visit to Bermuda

Some snaps from a journey to Bermuda...

St. George's Parish is the historic area to see. A ferry ride to Dockyard and on to Hamilton is the least expensive and best value for every tourist!  

The banana trees were full of unripened fruit.

Corroding door knocker on a cedar door. 

The America's Cup will take place in summer '17 in the waters of Bermuda. 
The Bermuda Underwater Institute  is currently featuring a most informative exhibit on this age-old race to the finish. Worth a visit while in Bermuda.
