Posted By Robin & Jim

Our boat is enjoying the nice weather in the Keys while we're running up and down the east coast in a car, visiting our families and friends for the holidays.  We had a great visit with Jim's family in Clearwater - several of his brothers and sisters were there with their spouses and families, and we had a marvelous time together!  This is Jim's brother Russell, his Dad, and his sister Margaret.  There were 24 people all together - a fun bunch.

From Clearwater, we headed up to NJ to see Robin's Dad for Christmas.  This is the house that Robin grew up in, and her Dad was born there.

The snow arrived a day late for a white Christmas, but it was a full-fledged blizzard with howling winds and drifting snow.  We have about 18" that fell in a relatively short time.  Fortunately it's sunny and nice today, but the wind is still fierce and it sometimes rearranges what the snow blower throws.  Jim spent the entire morning with Dad's snow blower clearing the sidewalks and driveway - he was having a ball!

If we had to do this all the time we'd hate it (we used to when we lived on the dirt in the Great White North), but it's a treat to see everything so pretty.  Tomorrow we start making our way south again, back to the palm trees and barracuda and sand.

This is Dad's caregiver Bronia, walking little Emma the Maltese - Emma hates the snow, but tolerates it with her little pink coat.

We had a nice time visiting with our Dads, but we're tired of wearing so many layers of clothes and we're ready to get back to the Keys where life is a little more laid back.

We want to wish you all a very Happy, Healthy New Year!
