Meeting Old Friends

Our friends Jim & Jane arrived in Florida from Solihull, England this week and are staying in Punta Gorda for a month enjoying all Florida has to offer. Barb Johnson also flew in from Palm Springs to spend a couple of weeks at TT Peace River while Jim & Jane are in Florida. We all met in Wauchula back in 2007 and have been great friends ever since, traveling many miles together in our Motorhomes. We've played countless games of Pickleball and attended dozens of happy hours together over the years.

 

Saturday, we all got together at TT Peace River with a ton of friends for a reunion hosted by Keith & Marie. It was just like old times. Lots of friends to share stories with and swap stories of our adventures since we last saw them and of course tons of great food on picnic tables arranged just right for two lines to serve themselves quickly. Jane spent a couple of hours in the river fossiling with the kids just like old times. Jim, Barb, Chris & I helped Marie setting up while also chatting with everyone as they arrived. As usual the food was fabulous and the company was wonderful. It was great to see old friends, Stan & Sally and Rich & Donna, Buddy, Chuc, Nate, and more. I only grabbed a few photos unfortunately as I was looking after Teddy as well. Donna & Jane grabbed photos of everyone so I expect they'll be posting them soon enough. Before long though the sun was setting and the mosquitos were starting to bite. That was our signal to pack up and head for home. Thank you Keith & Marie for a wonderful evening. Wishing you safe travels to TT Orlando today and a safe trip home too. Won't be long before we see you again!

The girls are planning a shopping day to Bradenton in the coming days. Barb will be spending Thanksgiving with us at Tanglewood and has arranged a ride for herself back to the airport in Orlando so no worries there.
