Our 8 hour trip from Washington to Rochester was uneventful with us travelling on quiet roads up through the Appalacian Mountains in picturesque Pennsylvania. Plenty of churches, bibles, country music, conservative radio political talk (Alan Jone’s sound- alikes!) and stunning wildflowers on this route.
This Italian style mansion owned by Rochester University NY was our destination. The mansion comes with the Provost’s job together with gardeners and cleaners! Well done Lennies!
Monet would enjoy this well designed and maintained garden.
And the beautiful outdoor entertaining area.
Clematis in full bloom.
Rhodondendrens at their peak.
Enjoying dinner with the Lennies and other guests, Jane McCarty and Mike Bell in the beautiful formal dining room.
Enjoying a very good Australian wine, Cape Mentelle 2005 together.
Cambridge UK seems a long time ago for these three.
