Bondville Does USA

We're on holidays! We've escaped the depths of Sydney's winter to spend some time with Aunts, Uncles, cousins, grandparents and extended family in the US. First stop, Seattle! Then White Hall, Maryland, north of Baltimore, then driving to Roanoke, in south-west Virginia.


So far we have flown right by Mt Rainier in Washington State, seen deer, owls, robins, chickadees, eagles and hawks in the woods at my sister's house, eaten our full of summer berries and serious (pizza) pie and visited the touristy-but-fun Pike Place Market in Seattle.

Now we're in White Hall, Maryland in Baltimore County on the east coast. Want to follow the journey? I'm posting pics along the way on Instagram (follow me @sbond). Check out the hashtag #BondvilleDoesUSA. If you don't have an instagram account or smart phone, you can follow the web version on any device right here.

There will be a few other posts while we're away, and you can keep up-to-date on Facebook too. See you IG/FB/here!
