And the Winner is… San Antonio?!

    1. Perfect! I can’t wait to read it. (Incidentally, I did just the same thing an hour ago. A blogger wrote about her bucket list and wanted readers to share theirs. I thought, “Oh God, that’ll take hours to type in” so I put in a link to that particular post. I think when the intent is well-meaning and not a ploy to get followers, it’s just fine.) I can’t wait to read you post. Thanks again!

  1. You mentioned Santa Barbara – what a fabulous town! However, none of we regular people can afford to live there. But I mention Santa Barbara because… remember the book(s) we read about now-deceased eccentric “trillionaire” heiress Huguette Clark? In Santa Barbara she (posthumously) continues to maintains a fully-functional and visitor-ready mansion that has seen no immediate family visitors since the early 1950’s. It’s named Bellosguardo, And I’m informed that housekeepers, gardeners, gatekeepers, etc., are working there today! Despite no family visits since the 1950’s! I recall reading in the book that the estate is positioned high on a hill/plateau that’s not visible from town. I looked into whether tours are available, but it seems like a “No”. The book I’ve referred to is called Empty Mansions.
