Dissonance

Here's a weird fact for you,

Laura Ingalls Wilder of the Little house books had a daughter. That's not the weird part. Her daughter, Rose Wilder Lane, loved Albania and wrote two book about the country. She was a journalist who travelled to WW1 and also Vietnam. And she loved Albania. The books are "The Peaks of Shala" about Albanian life and "Travels With Zenobia."

Hard to picture in some ways.

The sailing was fantastic again, the girls went to Black Creek with my Mom, and we are all bagged out and tired. A good day, but long.

I knew about Rose but not that she loved Albania. Gotta go look those books up.

Lovely sailing!

Jocelyn: Rose must have been quite an amazing woman...they seem to have run in the family, Carrie was pretty cool too...I found all this out on the Laura Ingalls Wilder website, just type in her name...
