05Dec2013_7g_San-Ramon_Sandi-Swan_Home_White-RoseThis trip of ours, depicted in the next four posts, would not have been possible without the kindness of Sandi, John and Jax for opening their home to us. To the three of you, we say simply, Thank-You! I offer this rose to you as a token of our love and affection for all of you. Not a bloodline relationship, but truly family nonetheless. You will always be family to us. Thank-You and enjoy this photographic sojourn. You did help to create it! Cheers!
