Blenheim Palace 2015. We spent one day there, exploring the grounds and the house. A very special and fun trip taken with my husband and two sons. A Few of My Favorite Things... June 28, 2017 by Virginia Ruth Our two extremely goofy Jack Russells. My husband calls this picture, "Fish, On Ice" . I call it, "Strike a Pose". These two will sometimes lie like this for a good 15- 20 minutes. I love going to museums and learning little tidbits of information. Plus I enjoy coffee. Low tide at one of the beaches at our beloved Cape Cod. The Robert McCloskey Make Way for Ducklings statues in Boston's Public Garden. One of my favorite books as a child and one of my favorite cities. What are a few of your favorite things?
