A new garden awaits

It seems nuts, but it looks like we have a new summer garden ahead. 

Our garden here in the Western North Carolina mountains is ready for HomeExchange folks for the next two months as is our house.

An acre in Le Bic, Quebec, at the gateway to the Gaspe Peninsula, is waiting, along with a historic schoolhouse turned into a home.

Our first in-person visit is a week from today, after four months of looking at images online, after coming to an agreement with the seller -- it's a personal seller-buyer site; we've talked back and forth via Google Translate for the last months, with one personal phone conversation via his bilingual friend (he'll be there for our official "final" visit) -- hmm, the last "contingency" on our purchase agreement.

An adventure, to be sure.  We'll be off on Tuesday, with Woody, bike and kayaks.

Regardless, we'll be enjoying summer, wherever we are!
