We have indeed arrived back home safe and sound and none-the-worse for the wear. A little tired, yes, but well. Now, after 23 hours in the car (actually 22 hours in the car and one hour at my sister Kathy's house for breakfast), I am ready for bed. How nice it will be to sleep in a bed that reclines all the way, isn't moving, and doesn't run over wake-up strips in the middle of my sleep.
More pictures from vacation are forthcoming, as soon as I get the mountain of laundry under control.
Goodnight from Minnesota.
