It is hard to believe that we have only a few days more here at the Big Pine Key Fishing Lodge, in the Keys. We have enjoyed so many new adventures and great experiences with friends and "family" in the campground. In these past few weeks, we have also had some visits from friends and family from other places. Our friends Nick and Harriet were visiting in the Miami area and came to Florida City to meet us for lunch. They treated us to a wonderful meal and visit. They were riding in a "Jag" - the first I had ever seen as a rental. Must have been fun to drive. Also, after hearing about my dental issues, Harriet told me about her cousin's husband who is a dentist on the Keys. After a few phone calls and an office visit, I now have a newly rebuilt tooth thanks to her. We have been friends since 1965, and it was a treat to see her and Nick in Florida.
Our friends Andre and Ruthie came from Virginia on a trip to get into warmer weather, take some photographs, and visit friends along the way. One of our enjoyable days was a visit to the Bahia Honda State Park.
|They brought their own accommodations!|
We have been enjoying being with them since last Wednesday and still have a few more days together.
We will all be leaving together heading north to Miami. After another day together there, they will fly home, and we will head to the Everglades.
As you might imagine, the deer have been one of the big hits, along with the beach, and the swimming pool. It has been a really wonderful visit and I hope they will carry many happy memories home with them.
