Merry Christmas Everyone!! We hope y’all are well and enjoying your holidays with family and friends. Since I didn’t blog this summer while traveling, I decided to do a photo year in review of our events and travels. Blogging was impossible while on the road for several reasons: fatigue, packed itineraries, and slow Internet. Here’s a quick summary of our summer trips and some photos of events throughout the year.
Our first adventure took us to the countries of Portugal, France, Switzerland, and England. All the destinations were repeat visits to places we always enjoy. The trip to England was extra special. We were invited, by a former student, to join in a birthday, wedding anniversary, and citizenship celebration at Highclere Castle. It was an amazing weekend event. I‘ll share those details in the photo captions.
The second trip was to Pennsylvania to visit my sister and then to Lake Wallenpaupack, where I lived with my grandparents for 10 years. We visited all my favorite places and had a fun time at “The Lake”.
After a few weeks in steamy Florida, we flew to Washington state to visit life long-friends. Our time in Seattle, Whidbey Island, Lake Chelan,
and Victoria with Sue and John was great fun.
In addition to these great trips, there were family and friends’ visits to Florida, time at the beach, the annual Sister-Fest, concerts, plays, operas, and fun times with all our Florida friends. It was a busy year!
