Well this has been two weeks + that we were not expecting to happen. And they have been a surprisingly delightful time. We came over here so we could be here when Jenean and Brian, our good good friends, came out. Unfortunately Jenean could not but Brian did and yesterday we had a wonderful visit and the most perfect afternoon in perfect sun and weather of 77 degrees. Ate outside on the waterfront and watched the college kids, visited up a storm and then visited with Brian’s wonderful Uncle Gary and his wife Anne. Also got to know his cousin and her husband. These are New Yorkers who have their two homes. It’s a great life. We were so pleased to have time with them all.
We have had doctor appointments and now have perscriptions for our medications on our new Supplimental insurance plan. I also got to a podiatrist and am following her instructions and doing much better with my foot. She was sure I did not have a hairline fracture. She sent me to her favorite shoe place for the nicest running shoe that does not hurt my foot. Told us to go next to it for the best croissants south of New York City. I never eat this stuff but………….
We bike around the campground and on the streets, even on the A1A along the Atlantic Ocean. I go to pool exercise classes and enjoy listening to the ladies laughing and telling stories in French. Most of them do not or choose not to speak English. But several help me out. It has been an interesting cultural experience. Hope I can go to Quebec City in the future. Funny observation, while many of these retired people work at staying in shape, quite a few of the men have great big bellies, which they push ahead of themselves, spend the entire day and evening shirtless, lie out in the sun and are brown as berries. In fact most of the northerners that winter here lay out all the time and get dark brown tans every winter.
I got my red hair back!. Yeah. And a great cut. And it was the cheapest hairdo I got since we started traveling.
The Martinez house goes up for sale the first week in April. Already there are people interested!!!!
