Postcard from Centurion SFO

Twenty-first century domestic air travel leaves something to be desired…..right?  American Express Centurion Lounges restore a bit of the missing mystique.  A Platinum Amex Card, boarding pass and government ID provide complimentary access to all amenities.

Postcard from the Wolery

 Heartbroken last year on March 14, finding a broken egg on the ground below the box, we have been tentative with the barn owls this year…perhaps not wanting to become too attached. 

Occasionally leaving lovely reminders of their presence,

they remain in residence.  Last evening at dusk they were particularly noisy, inviting us to come out to watch their flurry of comings and goings from the box.  With hope in our hears we wait to see…………..
