We are in Rocky Mount, NC today! We arrived in Jacksonville, FL on Monday afternoon and spent the remainder of the week getting the boat ready to leave at Beach Marina which is 6 miles from Nelson’s sister, Loretta’s house. We also spent time visiting her and her Husband, Mac when we weren’t on the boat. It was wonderful taking a long, hot, bath at their house and using all the hot water I wanted. We had a good visit with them. We picked up the rental car Thursday morning, loaded what we need to take to Rocky Mount, and headed north, on the road for a change. We stopped in Brunswick, Georgia and visited some friends, Connie & Ed, from Washington, DC. They had taken their 40 foot Catalina there and were leaving it there over the holidays. We hope to see them again when we return to Florida. We had a wonderful lunch in Brunswick at Christie’s right on main street. It was fun getting together again. They were with us when we were in Mexico. We spent last night looking through all the mail we had received since we were home and reading those things we were interested in. Our neighbors, Keith & Jane Abbott were saving it for us. We really do appreciate them getting it for us while we were away.
Today, we had to take the rental car back to Avis and take Nelson’s car to the garage to get a flat tire repaired and oil changed. I need to get groceries as we do not have much to eat here at the house. We did manage to find enough to have good ole Smith’s sausage for breakfast. It is great to be home. We are looking forward to being with our families and friends over the Christmas Holidays. We hope to see you all soon.
