Belated Happy New Year


Chris & I have been at Riverbend Motorcoach Resort since mid November and enjoying ourselves immensely. There is plenty to do here with activities such as Pickleball, Pi Yo, line dancing, quilting, beading, walking, cycling and swimming, just to name a few. Time seems to just fly by too. Before we knew it, the holidays were upon us and that meant we got to enjoy a visit from Matt & Sarah and Casey who all spent Christmas with us. Weather was fabulous and we even managed a couple of days on the beach.

Our friends Tony & Christine arrived shortly after we did in November but only had a few days in Florida before returning to Canada for the Christmas season and also to oversee the construction of their new home. Lots to do for sure. We kept an eye on their site and Casey used their coach house for sleeping while here. Casey spent Christmas with us while Matt & Sarah spent Christmas and New Year with us before heading back to Cold Lake, AB.


No sooner had the kids headed home than Tony & Christine returned to Riverbend. Chris and I were both busy volunteering at the Riverbend Pickleball tournament which was very well attended and ran very smoothly. I was supposed to head for England earlier this month on the weekend of the tournament so I never bothered signing up to play because I didn't want to have to cancel at the last minute. Well my trip was delayed a week so I got to watch some great tournament matches and saw lots of old friends too. I'm in England now for a quick week long trip to check on my mother and make sure all is well at home. So far so good. Planning to be back at Riverbend on Sunday evening.
