So we've done with all the immigration paperwork - the permanent residency card is safely in my mitts, I have a New Jersey driving license (sitting the theory test for that one was interesting for a Brit!) and we've finally got bank accounts set up and mobile phones ever at the ready for the latest hot news. We've also bought ourselves a couple of cars, but there's still a house to sort out. So, we're currently renting a little two-bedroom place - but what a great location. We have two acres of land, running straight back into hundreds of acres of forest, all part of the Cape May National Wildlife Refuge.
We have a certain young bear called Denali who made the crossing with us and some of the trials and tribulations of moving to the US are best told with pictures from Denali's own scrapbook.
The first strong hint we had that Denali wanted to leave
the English weather behind and head for the USA!!
Through all the security checks at Philadelphia Airport, Denali eventually made it to the rental car without having any veterinary checks!
