Southern Get Away
January 08 to February18

Citys States Events

First try at extended stay away from home. Left the snow and cold January 08 and headed to Memphis,
spending 4 nights with daughter Lori and visiting with both her family and son Rock and his family.
From there, headed to Pensacola for 2 nights, I always wanted to visit here - great air museum.
Next stop Ft Myers FL where we spent 3 days visiting Kel's brother & sister-in-law, Butch & Denise and sister & brother-in-law Kate & Bill.
With great anticipation we headed to Tavernier, condo was nice.
Picked up daughter & son-in-law, Heather & Nathan in Naples for a quick visit. We all spent the following day at Key West where Heather & Nathan
headed to Nathan's parents in Naples by jet boat.
Cutting the 28 days on Tavernier short we headed back to Ft Myers for the remaining 10 days.
