New Chapter: Explore the World

And it has begun…


Holy Shit.  I’ve sold almost everything I own, am living from one suitcase, and traveling the world.

Bob and I left the house July 24th. The renters moved into the house on the 25th.

Because they needed to be in Milwaukee early, we are traveling around the US until August 31 when we catch a flight to Milan, Italy.

So, you could say our travels have begun.

Here are a few pictures of the garden and the house the day we left.

Stay tuned for adventures from Copper Harbor, MI.
