Globe Trotting

Unfortunately, progress has slowed since we passed the final building inspection in December. Somewhat because of travel. We spent Christmas in Wursalen Germany with our daughter and family. Then we returned for our grandkids birthdays in February.

In between we visited our son in Arizona and had our middle son visit with his family.

While leaving Dave in Germany I returned early to join my sister and family on a cruise to Cuba! This was my first cruise and my sister and brother and cousin and nephew decided to do one together. So I was able to join them. We were eight all together and because my nephew is employed by the cruise line we were given VIP treatment.

We received champagne and fruit plates and chocolate covered strawberries!

After a night of travel we stopped in Key West for lunch as getting off the ship at a military base took a lot of time. Then we sailed on to Cuba! Which we toured in one of the famous 50’s cars.

We stopped at Ernest Hemingway’s home and writing retreat. Then toured the city and had lunch at one of the new private eateries complete with roaming chickens in the yard.

Finally visited a bit more with my brother at his winter resort in Florida and drove over to enjoy the fabulous Florida beaches. Warm enough to swim in March!

So mid March returned to get back to work but not on my house! Working at my son’s house to remodel before he moves here this summer!
