Paula and Mary ~ Lake Almanor, California ~ July 2009
Come December, we gals will celebrate 48 years of true friendship. Although we lived in the same English town as children, we didn't meet until we both moved to Washington, D.C. in 1962. It was as if fate brought us together on foreign soil. We became roommates for a while, sharing an exciting time in the big city until Paula moved to California. Over the years we've often shared times together, most recently in sub-Saharan Africa on that awesome safari. Soon I'll be heading to Northern California again for a week of fun at Paula's Summer home on beautiful Lake Almanor.

Paula's world travels encompass countries and places many of us have never even heard of! Her photos are awesome and she shares them on her great website. You will see Africa, Antarctica, and everywhere in between. Be sure to visit her here on Paula's Planet to view all her stunning albums, including our African safari.
How fortunate I am to have shared this amazing friendship for so long.............and I know I'm in for another big hug very soon!
