My how the time goes.
My trip to Seattle late in November was good. Gordie came through his bypass surgery in really good shape. Four weeks later he's experiencing extreme cabin fever. The skype photos shows he's looking really good! The weather has been too cold to get out much, but he's getting in his dialing walking allotment!
One my way back from Seattle I stopped in San Francisco where I was met by my Aunt Bette. She whisked us away to the north Marin area - Sebastapol, Petaluma and Santa Rosa. We enjoyed 3 days of wandering, shopping, being tourists, and enjoying some much needed time together. Lefty was along and navigated with he new 'Santa' hat. I was still using a cane for most of the trip and didn't take many photos. The cane and camera were just not a good combo!
Returning to La Paz the first week of December found both Tom and I scrambling to get our boats ready for the owners return. Just after my return my leg felt a lot stronger and I've left the cane behind!
We've found time for some lovely social nights with friends, and a couple of trips to the shelter to spread some cheer to them.
All of the residents received a bag of goodies, lots of pizza and a 'fir' decorated cake!
Everyone including Benita received a new warm jacket!
We are currently wrapping up our day and week. Anticipating a week out camping, we're packing the trailer. Unfortunately, we discovered one of the springs had broken.......damn. Tom removed the broken part and headed off to the welder for a repair. He returned an hour later saying it couldn't be fixed.... then pulled a brand new spring out from behind his back! That's my guy!
So, we've one more social event tonight to hear Katie from SV Pangaea, a professional opera singer, sing some Christmas songs for all. Tomorrow we will work a short day, pack the trailer and find a quiet spot for the week.
We wish everyone a wonderful holiday season! Fill it with lots of love, friendship, laughter, chocolate and cookies. Snow and that cold stuff if you must!
We hope that your Christmas and New Year wishes all come true!
