I haven’t dropped off the face of the continent. Really! This last week has been full of seeing Kate Hill’s beloved Kitchen at Camont change gears to prepare for Winter. The herb and vegetable garden are weeded and put to bed, the grass mowed one last time, wood delivered and stacked. And, now, it begins. Winter. The lovely soft Gascon rain. Camont rain. I will miss my days here but carry them with me forever.
But, before I leave, Kate and I are sneaking in one last little excursion to Spain! We’re heading down the Mediterranean side to L’Escala on the Costa Brava of Girona. As strange as this my sound, I have some history here. It’s part of a story of my biological family that I really don’t know all too much about and have been interested in over the years. Apparently I had an ex-pat grandmother who lived in this area moving there from the US in the 20’s.
My birth story trail has led me many places and now, I am about to embark on roads that she may have traveled. So stay tuned and we’ll see what comes up next. And, yes, I will share my story with you…
But, first, we’re packing the car and heading to Spain.
