Let the grande aventure begin -France is in sight

Our grande aventure is back on track. COVID and 2020 put a lot of plans on hold for all of us. On 12 March 2020, the day before the shutdowns began, we were all set to move to La Thebaudiere in Normandy, as I write we are still in Mukilteo, BUT that is all set to change.

Note: If you are used to receiving notification of new posts here by MailChimp on the day after the post, please sign up to follow from the home page as I will be deleting MailChimp in a week or so.

We will be relocating at the same place in Normandy as we planned to in 2020; selling our condo and giving away or selling most everything. If all goes well Tricia will be retired and we will be living in France by mid-March of 2022. We will both blog about the adventure posting my sketches and Tricia’s wonderful photos. ( Follow her blog here, http://www.travelsthroughmylens.com) we hope you will join us for the journey.

Here are a few sketches from the last couple of weeks.

Keep on traveling and sketching!

    Very exciting! So glad for you both.


    1. Thanks, lots happening. Getting rid of furniture, packing and downsizing, lots of doors reopened.


  2. How exciting you all are moving to France – what an adventure. We are moving to Oregon and purging all kinds of stuff. Actually feels good to lighten the load.

    1. Thank you so much, yes it will be a grand adventure for sure. BTW I loved South Africa when i was there doing seminars many years ago, I still favor the Proteas. I watched them play India in Jo’berg, what a day.

      1. Ah, it’s great to hear you visited South Africa! Yes, we like the Proteas as well 😊 … we were keeping our fingers crossed during the recent World T20, but alas … maybe next time!


      2. Of course i have been to Australia more than any other country so a piece of me likes them as well.
