Hello my friends, I missed you all more than I realized, you all have become such an important part of my life.
It has been a long time since I had such a wonderful two weeks. Every morning after our showers and breakfast we would go out on the deck and enjoy the warm sunshine, hot coffee and great conversations with people I love. We just enjoyed ....... the saultry air, the robins chirping as they visited us, friends and neighbours waving as they walked by our little piece of heaven....we made plans for the day ahead of us and laughed so much at everything including ourselves. Laughter was part of every day when I was home.
We were outside 99% of the time, only once did we eat dinner inside and only once did we leave the beach to visit my brother's and his wife's home for dinner and a visit. They have a beautiful home and you all would of enjoyed their lawns and flowers. My sister in law, Karen is very creative and an amazing gardener although my brother does help her a bit.

My niece Kelley and her husband Ralph (who I met for the first time) from New York City. So good to see them both.
My sister Sylvia, my brother Jack who is also one of my best friends and me. We look more alike now that we are older than we ever have.
Me and my sister Sylvia before we went out to dinner with friends.
My brother who I love dearly at his place just before dinner. I always say God made him then broke the mold. We all should be blessed with a brother like Frank. He is such a soft and gentle soul.
Every day was full, we swam in the ocean, took long bicycle rides on the bike trails, walked on the soft warm sand on the beach as well as took long walks throughout the cottage and camp grounds. We stopped and said hello to complete strangers who went on to become friends. For two weeks I shared my life with the most wonderful people. On Saturday nights we danced until 2 in the morning only to wake up by 8 o'clock to meet up with friends and neighbours for breakfast. We then all would head over to the farmer's market, then shopped in the quaint shops in town and stop and have the best Walnut ice cream ever!!!!! My sister in law, who is also one of my best friends and I headed for the sun and surf during the afternoon and I have a nice tan for the first time in years. My brother, Jack BBQ'd for suppers most nights and as the sun went down we all sat out around the fire and chatted and laughed about the dance the night before. Each night I fell into bed happy and exhausted from the fresh air and full day looking forward to the next day filled with more fun. I will share more pictures and stories with you tomorrow.
I arrived home at 6:30 am this morning after a plane delay (due to fog) of over 7 hours exhausted. The full days and the 3 hour time difference has finally caught up with me. I am looking forward to catching up with all your post over the next few days.
I think you can click on my pictures to enlarge, I will check to make sure. So happy to be back with all of you.....Good Night and God Bless my friends, so good to be back with you.
