Jim and I are very fortunate to be healthy, to have each other, to have a passion for our work, and to be able to travel. Life is good.

Another concert! Also at The Parker. This one is The Fab Four - a Beatles Tribute band. They were really fun. See the photo album for some video.
Then came the USA Dive Club Christmas party in Delray. It's about an hour drive, so we took advantage of the special rate to spend the night at the hotel where the party was held. Any excuse to feel like we're traveling!
We've been partying, and diving, with some of these people for nearly 40 years. Still going strong!
For the Christmas day event, things were back to normal with Jim's sister, Debbie, hosting.
For New Year's Eve - a real treat! Marie invited us to her house and we decided to take the Van and sleep in her driveway.

At the beginning of the month we were still on our way back from New Jersey. We arrived back at Chloe's Big Mill B&B just in time to celebrate Halloween with her! What a hoot.
Then out to dinner at Sunny Side Oyster Bar - the real deal.
Then we got back on the road and stayed at the beautiful Fort McAllister State Park in Georgia. Then on to Florida and a quick visit with Diane and Andy who have moved back to Florida after several years in California. The last time we saw them was in San Juan Capistrano when their daughter, Elizabeth was about 8 and climbing all over the jungle gyms. Now she is 15? and an award-winning goalie on a soccer team.
They live in Melbourne, not far from Robin Werling - so we stayed in Robin's driveway for the night and headed home the next day. We had to get home in time to attend the Graham Nash concert at The Parker on Nov 6 - a reservation Jim made as my birthday present.
But that still gave us time to go to our favorite "date-night" restaurant (Cooper's Hawk) for dinner on my actual birthday!
We did it! We hosted Thanksgiving!

We strolled past the Royal Albert Hall and statue and on to Kensington Palace, then it was time to find the Castle Pub and meet up with Vivien. I've known Vivien from Fort Lauderdale since the 90s. She is UK born and bred and still spend half her time in London
