We left Florida on Sunday and flew to Manchester, NH where our son picked us up and drove us to his home. We stayed there overnight. He and his girlfriend, Danielle, grilled kabobs for us. Delicious supper on the deck in the sunset!
On Monday we drove to Maine and opened up our new park model. We bought it last fall and didn't really have a chance to live in it much before heading to Florida for the winter.
Before even settling in, we had to go to Berlin, our old home town, to pick up the boat and a couple vehicles. We did that Tuesday. I was able to get a hair cut from my long-time hairdresser, Emily. It was so nice to get caught up with her. I used to color my hair every three weeks so going a whole winter without talking to her was really different. I'm so glad I'm not bothering with dye anymore but I did miss her.
Then, the best part of the day was meeting up with Erin and Kylie. We went for supper at the Red Parka Pub and it was so nice to sit next to Kylie and giggle with her.
And, yesterday, I finally made it to the beach! It was misty at the time so I didn't stay very long but managed to breathe in all that briny goodness. Nice knowing it will be there all summer.
We had a great winter in Florida but this is home!
A few pictures I took last night as the sun was going down. Our assignment was to capture some sun flare then post-process in black and white. But the colored ones were so pretty, I just had to share them.
We took off in the boat for a few days this week. I tried taking pictures from the moving boat but it was very choppy. This is Ft. Myers Beach.
We stayed at The Postcard Inn at Holiday Isle Resort on Windley Key.
The place just underwent a huge make over. The grounds were so nice. There are five bars and a couple of pools and clean beach area. Here is one of the bars that looks like a tree house.
Here is a picture of Gary at the pool. I like how he's nicely color coordinated!
And he took one of me. I'm so not photogenic!
We had a really nice time in spite of very choppy seas on the way back. It took us ten hours which is about double the length it should have been! We were so sore and achey the next day. This old body can't take it anymore!
