to our oldest grandson,
There are not enough words to describe how exciting it has been for us.
First camping through Canada and Alaska; then Montana, Idaho and Nevada state and national parks. Exploring the fantastic national parks in Utah; then finding the variety of campgrounds available in New Mexico; and now experiencing the beautiful winter weather of Arizona and California.
And along the way, we have met so many wonderful people, both locals and fellow travelers from every walk of life.
The best part for us has been the chance to be together without those pesky things called jobs that take up so much time.
Enough of the mushy stuff, February 17 was David's birthday and we celebrated it by having lunch in Yuma.
Of course, we also did some errands in town since it's a 25 mile drive from our campsite.
Driving south into Yuma, one of the things we see is the radar blimp in the sky.
Us again at the Golden Corral
restaurant on the 17th.
I started this post with our beautiful grandson,
then with the beauty of 'living our dream' ,
and then the unexpected beauty of parking lots.
Now I would like to share the beauty that is my sister, Marie.
This month marked one year since she lost the battle with cancer. Her daughter received a letter from the Science Cares Organization, which Marie had made arrangements with before her death to donate her body to science. I would like to share this letter with everyone in remembrance of her lifelong way of always caring for others. ( Her nick name at work was "mother Marie" )
