In 1972 and 1973 I lived in Venice, Florida. It was kind of an adventure that my BFF Kathy and I took. We had an old blue van that we fixed up like a camper. One day we packed up and drove to Florida with my dog Phineas T., an afghan hound and Poco, Kathy's small dog. We lived at a camp ground in the van and in a tent. Florida is a great place to live but I missed Boston and went back there after two years.
In 1990, I moved to Orange County, California. I was engaged and my future husband was living there. On June 10, 1990 we packed up my '87 red Chevy Camaro and drove across country. I couldn't wait to get to OC. I had always wanted to go to California. It was so much fun there. We did all the tourist things.....Hollywood, Beverly Hills, Disneyland, Knotts Berry Farm. I think we went to the beach every chance we got. I liked living in California but I really missed the green grass and trees. Most everything is cemented over there.
In 1992 we moved to the Seattle, Washington area. Well, there sure is a lot of green here. That's because we get so much rain. Did you know that there is even a rain forest here in Washington?
