... treat last night, Thursday, as we attended a play of the wizard of oz put on by Graces school. She was the tin man for the most part. It was a good performance.
We will not blog again until we have moved on. We will check emails though. Take care for now!

A great state, well worth the visit, but bring or acquire a boat for maximum enjoyment. Ever ...
