A very strange awakening today. Last night we went to bed late . We lock up the downstairs bedroom with a few valuables and sleep in the upstairs bedroom with the door open for more air. At the foot of the bed is my large suit case , with extra clothing and miscellaneous stuff, and hanging on the wall are several bags with guitar and camera equipment , and a day pack. This morning, Alison got up and was making coffee when a neighbour , out walking her dog, popped in and said there was a suitcase and some suff strewn around on the road up behind our house. We retrieved the stuff , all jumbled and riffled through, to find that my money and passport were not taken. Most of my clothing and equipment were still there, but I am missing a few camera lenses and a guitar preamp( L.R. Baggs in it's box , price tag still on it ,$200.00) .In time, I may notice a few other things missing, but so far , the only clothes I am missing are a few easily recognizable tee shirts. I am very relieved that we got so much back, but we are feeling violated and want to warn others. We have stayed here for many winters now and had so little to worry about, that it is sad that we have to be more careful and suspicious. We had such a nice evening, that we are still feeling very happy to be in such a lovely town, with lots of wonderful friends. Happy New Year to all.
