Prep time! Tomorrow we head south.

Sunday, November 29th 2015, the day before our departure.

Tomorrow our son Liam will drive us to the airport and we will go to Los Angeles where we will stay the night and then continue on our way to Léon, Mexico for a three month stay in beautiful San Miguel de Allende.

Today, however we must get packing and clean the house. Then on Monday morning we turn off the water, turn down the heat, give keys to neighbours in case there is an emergency and cross all the T's and dot all the I's.

It's hard to believe that the day is finally here, after renting the house of Barbara ( It was just a fluke, really... Babs had posted on her blog that she was looking for a long term tenant for her guest house in the back. I commented that we were looking for something for a three month term and she offered us her main house! I took us about three seconds to make the decision.

Three loads if laundry done and the suitcases are full. Cameras are tested and ready. Little bluetooth speaker is charged. Tickets and hotel reservation are printed and in the carry-on bag. All that's left to do is try to have a good night's sleep so we can hit the road running...

Next post on Monday from our hotel in Los Angeles...
