As you probably already know, tomorrow Mr B & I are leaving on our long anticipated and planned for trip to the US, that is if the striking French workers allow us to travel.
First stop Charlotte, NC, where we will rest briefly after our trip, before driving down to Savannah, Georgia to co-host the 12th Annual meeting of the Quimper Club.
Savannah Square shaded by moss draped oaks.
We have a planned a fabulous 5 day extravaganza of tours, events with guest speakers, a ceramics restoration seminar, Riverboat cruise and delicious dinners in interesting and exciting restaurants.

We're even throwing in a private Plantation Tour "a la Tara"!!
I think even Scarlett O'Hara would be impressed.
After all the madness.................two weeks R&R in our home from home on Hilton Head where days will be spent relaxing, reading and enjoying the wide empty beaches.
Building sand castles
There will also be plenty of much needed retail therapy going on too.
My trusty pink laptop will be coming along for the trip, so I'll be able to visit your blogs, whenever I get 5 minutes and hopefully will also find time to blog about some of the Savannah activities over on the QCI blog and share some more magical Hilton Head shots here on this blog
Whilst we're off having fun, Mr Ben will not be neglected, not at all. His favourite sitters Leighton & June will be here to pamper him and make sure all is well in the home.
