Moving On

After New Zealand, it's back to Happy Trails for more Pickleball, walking, friends and family. Our next trip was on April 8th with friends Kim, John, Nancy and Wayne.  John had won a week in Grand Cayman at the live Auction last summer at the Chili Cook-off  benefiting the Thayne, Wy. CMTs.

Great house with 3 bathrooms right on the beach.  Bob and I were lucky enough to get invited after one other couple backed out.  It was a great week.  Beautiful house with great amenities.

After an hour of feeding and watching the rays, we headed out to the reef for some snorkeling.

 Furnished with the house was kayaks, and some snorkeling equipment we could just snorkel right from the beach.

For Christmas, we had 5 couples, John and Pat, Dennis and Bunny, Harolyn and Don. Geoff and Nancy and us. More of an informal meal and played cards. Reminded me of Christmases we used to have at my Mom's.  Eating, playing and then more snacking.  Lots of fun.

On New Year's Day, we hosted about 20 people for breakfast.  Nancy and Wayne Muggli helped with the cooking and Bob made his Apple Cinnamon Pancakes.  Everyone started the New Year with a full tummy of Pancakes, sausage, bacon, eggs, and hashbrowns.

Our next adventure was to New Zealand, North and South Island.  Long trip for 10 days.  Flew from Phoenix to Los Angeles and then to Auckland, t…
