Barbara and I enjoy meeting with Janice and Gordy Allen when they visit their son Ben and family in Baltimore. They report a resumption of travel including their much enjoyed bike tours in Europe, this time through the Black Forest and Alsace regions, from Basel to Strasbourg. In February 2022, they took a long-awaited cruise in the Sea of Cortez near the Baja Peninsula, chiefly to see, and almost touch, the humpback whales that gather there. Last year also brought a major life decision, to sell their home of 30 years in Portland, and move into a retirement community this fall. They will retain their second home on the Oregon coast.
