It was foggy at first.
I looked forward to seeing the mimosa tree again, but it wasn't blooming and had several dead branches - the work of Hurricane Sandy.
So, after a gracious welcome we had an hour-long conference with a bathroom break before Mass. Then lunch. We'd been expecting sandwiches. Nope - Chicken Parmesan
with a small salad before, and jello and whipped cream after, served by a most cheerful staff.
A walk around the grounds before the afternoon conference
I can't imagine a more idyllic place - everyone kept saying it was like being in Heaven!
In my wanderings I came upon a little herb and vegetable garden, and then noticed grape vines.
When I saw a woman tending a potted flower I asked her about it. She was a gardener, and yes, they have some fruit trees and a larger garden area across the street - they'd just picked a big batch of currants the other day.
