  14. This is a wonderful collection of pictures of one beautiful estate and grounds. Your accompanying words bring it all to life for the viewer. I cannot tell you how much I enjoyed looking at and reading all of your commentary. Beth and I did have mucho FUN and FRIENDSHIP on our walk. 40 years separate us in age, but you would not have known it for a minute. We were like 2 little kids in a candy store. I wish more bloggers - me included - could meet one another. It is special. genie
