About us

We are Sue and Lee Ann.

We are enjoying a simple but happy retirement together.  We have been together since 1985. We decided to write about our low-key "adventures" from both our perspectives and as a couple. Sue, who managed a travel agency, enjoys baking, cooking, walking and her great-granddaughters., Lee Ann enjoys music (keyboards, handbells, guitar, ukelele), photography, biking and learning. She retired as a land-use planner from the State of Delaware.

Quelle Surprise!

In October 2019, we drove with two friends to Quebec City and sampled its history, culture, food and drink. Highly recommended!

From a rolling sea of slickrock to high-altitude pine forests to towering red rocks, it’s hard for us East Coast flatlanders to absorb. Approaching Zion National Park, the rocks again change to red –…
