Hello everyone!  I'm home from my latest cross country Amtrak trek to and from my family back east.  I slipped in between Sandy and the nor'easter that dropped a little snow. All in all we fared well...I arrived after the power family was fortunate. There was SO much damage. Many many trees down. So much suffering and loss.

I'm going to try posting from my iPad...this is the fireplace we all gathered around the night before I left:

Here is the crack of dawn the day I left New Jersey:

And here is the crack of dawn the day I returned to California...sorry about the reflections, but  a very intense rainbow developed during breakfast as we sped through Nevada and the enthusiasts rushed to catch it while it lasted.

Here is one of my favorite scenes in the Delta before we arrive in the Bay Area:

And finally, here is a Thanksgiving star to thank you all for being there and for reading my blog.  Have a safe tomorrow.  xoxo, s.

p.s. Posting from the ipad didn't work so well,  it seemed to get overwhelmed after the third photo, so I finish up on regular computer.
