Warm California sun.
Family OTW return to an embattled England in a few hours after the best summer any of us can remember. Vinogirl,vinomaker,the Utah clan and many nameless casual acquaintances made this summer a pleasurable experience that I thought had disappeared with the summers of my childhood...but magically reappeared for princess OTW.The weather,freedom of action and the politeness of all we encountered made such a difference from the sodden and economically comatose Britain we left, that returning is a bittersweet undertaking. I never did find my new house but I enjoyed looking and found out just how different the process is from back at home so I will continue to search at a distance.....All good things come to an end and so its time to say goodbye to America...until spring!
