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!
