|Home Sweet Home|
We passed the next photo and wondered what was going on. It looked as though people were getting ready to ski downhill. When we got closer we realised it was a pile of salt and the men were bagging the salt. I wonder if they described themselves as an "a salt" team!!!!
We travelled 3100 miles on our trip. The warmest the water ever got was 78 degrees, the deepest was 100 ft in the Chesapeake Bay. The furthest south we got in the boat was Marathon on the Keys. This was the same latitude as Riyadh, Abu Dhabi, Karachi, Calcutta and Okinawa. The longest we travelled without staying in a marina was 11 days. However, the nicest thing about the trip was the "old" friends we met up with and the new friends we made. I would like to say a big thank-you to the following people:
Karina and David, Trudy and Jim, Wanda and Bill, Martha and Glenn, Rose and Phil, Elinor and Tom, Dave and Lauren and Bob. You all made our trip very special. A huge thank-you to our wonderful neighbors, Michel and Ed who cut the grass and raked up all my leaves (and I have loads of leaves) so that when we got home the garden looked so nice.
I would also like to say thank-you to everyone who read and followed my blog. I had people from Canada, Germany, Philippines, Ecuador and Russia "tuning" in so to them I say merci beaucoup, Dankeschon, gracias and Без перевода.
Gary and I are now planning our next trip after we visit our parents. We plan on doing The Great Loop which will take us up to and into Canada, down part of the Mississippi into the Ohio River, through the Gulf and back home along the route we have just accomplished. Because we did not kill each other, fall overboard or lose the cat, we know that we can manage this longer trip. We hope to have our nephew Eric, friend Alan and son join us for part of the trip
which will give Gary and I someone else to talk to. We are expecting to leave on or around the 4th June so please join us again for the second Johney Blog.
So, thank-you again for joining us and the nice feedback I have received. I have been asked if I "touch" up my photos. The answer is no, they are exactly as I took them for the reason I have yet to learn how to "touch" them up. See you all in June. Be happy, safe and caring of others.
