Madras Monday: Precious Places
In the meantime, I was thinking about how this summer was really the summer of "Precious Places"...because in this one summer I have been blessed to be able to spend time in three places that have been precious to me since I was a child. There have been other places, all over the world, where I have spent time and which I also love....but these Precious Places are the ones I come back to and feel the same as I did when I first saw them 40 plus years ago.
My Top Three Precious Places That I Am Revisiting This Summer:
1. Delray Beach and Palm Beach. Where I grew up...."Home." (see www.historicdelray.org)
2. Estes Park, Colorado (see www.mcgrawranch.com)
3. Colonial Williamsburg (been going there, on and off, since I was two years old, and still feel a thrill when I am walking down Duke of Gloucester Street!)
