Escape to the River. . .Again!

by Maggie Sefton

Hi, there, Kelly Flynn Readers and Friends and Fans!  I'm back in my old hometown area
of Northern Virginia enjoying Family time and visiting old Friends, too.  Yesterday, Monday, I drove down from the Vienna/Fairfax area of Northern VA just an hour and half away to the "River Escape" property which is surrounded by woods and lots of trees and is just a block and a half from the Potomac River.  Just down the street, literally.  This is is a perfect place to relax after a really hectic June and July with a lot of traveling and a busy, busy conference in Denver with over 3000 fiction readers.  As I've mentioned in previous posts, that was non-stop action.  :)    And, of course, NASA Astronaut daughter Serena's launch to the International Space Station in June.

But now----I get to relax.  Just relax in this restful spot, probably sitting in a deck chair on a shady part of the wrap-around deck.  Boy. . .do I need to relax, and I'm looking forward to it.

These past few days, I've been going around to bookstores in the Northern VA and Washington, D.C. Metro area taking postcards of the latest Kelly Flynn Mystery----DYEING UP LOOSE ENDS.  As I've probably mentioned several times before this is the 16th Kelly Flynn Mystery.  Hard to believe, isn't it?   I'm hoping all of you will enjoy it.  

Our Northern VA family gathered at daughter Christine's home on Saturday to have a special video call from daughter Serena on the Space Station.  That was great fun.  We got to see her two crew mates,  Kasparov and Gerst, exercising and lifting weights.  And Flexing muscles.  :)   I'm unable to post the video online, however.  NASA rules.

So I will post some of the River house peaceful photos of the Potomac River and grandchildren searching the sand for shells.  :)
