Before India – Here we are in beautiful New Jersey

 

We arrived on Friday via DFW to Newark for a three day visit before we leave on Monday for India. Sally and Robert have been friends since 1972, when we all lived in married student housing at the University of Denver. My, how the time flies!

They are the type of friends that you see sporadically, but it feels like yesterday. So, under cloudy skies, we are heading out for the day. At least it is not raining and the temps are good. Tomorrow, a day in Princeton to see the sculpture gardens.

…We are back from the gardens and they were indeed amazing. The main sculptor was Seward Johnson, but there were pieces from many others, including Red Grooms. Johnson is famous for his lifelike metal representations of ordinary people. Some were subtle and others of immense proportions. The photos give you an idea, although I have about fifty more. Although the sun never made its appearance, the day was perfect, with lots of walking.

After two nights of dinners at the house, we went out for a lovely Italian meal in Westfield. You bing your own wine, so two bottles later, we were ready to play Bridge again, after reintroducing the game to our friends after over forty years! And they just picked it up where they left off. Great fun!

A little laundry, organizing our items for the trip and off we go in the morning.
