Greetings from a rainy, chilly campsite in the French Alsace!

It's good to have some time off. The weather is a letdown but we had a great few day's camping with the SO's parents out here, followed by a bunch of cultural visits to the loveliest of villages along the wine route, passe sanitaire ready but hardly needed. This region really surprised me with how beautiful it is.

We go home in a few days, and now that I and most of my friends are almost or entirely vaxxed and Delta fairly under control, I'm cautiously hoping for a back to normal time ahead.
