During the month of May I had been scheduled to take a repeat of my Indigo/Katazome workshop in Japan. Sadly the Japanese Prime Minister decided the country was not ready to reopen due to an increase in the Covid count. I had an American Airlines credit that had to be used before October so we decided to get out of town.
Last month, my husband and I decided to take a three day getaway in our RV and camp at a Florida state park that we had not visited before. We selected Jonathan Dickinson State Park, on the east coast. The park was a leisurely three hour drive from Naples using Florida byways, heading northeast to the city of LaBelle with a lunch stop at LaBelle Brewing Company, a favorite of ours.
About 15 years ago when I worked for WGCU Public Media, I attended a public broadcasting meeting near Wauchula, in central Florida. There I met Patrick Harris from WLRN in Miami.
