Hey everyone- Patty and Keith here. We live in a tiny Trinidad, California, close to Arcata and Eureka on the coast. Here is a picture of the view from our deck, and one of Keith and me in Bali. Very excited to get started on this trip of a lifetime! And looking forward to "luxury" cruising!
Heres a photo of us on the Mt Shasta Dinner Train outside of Weed CA. We are both retired and will often say "Retirement is very under rated." Obviously it is.............. Here's a shot of our garden in full glory in May....there's a reason it's so green....RAIN....
We live in Lake Oswego, Oregon. Russell is bicycling everywhere, making clay art, painting and on occasion riding off into the sunset on his BMW motorcycle to go camping or some such thing.
Meanwhile I keep busy quilting, gardening at home and at the community veggie garden space, occasionally riding my bicycle (I am more a fair weather biker going to the store), taking photographs, cooking up a storm for friends and family and when I sit down it's only to read a book or watch the latest Netflix DVD or post photos and write on my blog.
We are counting the days til we are on this cruise-what an adventure!
Pam and Harry live in an absolute Paradise with their adorable dogs. When they aren't making wine, or cooking for friends, or canning tuna you might just catch them watching American Idol-they love that show!
Obviously we aren't on our cruise yet, but our Master Travel Agent Tom has been hard at work for MONTHS making sure we are seeing what we want to see and doing what we want to do...which is of course having fun and seeing the sights..... it's quite wonderful all the places we will be going to and all that we will do thanks to Tom.
Here's a nice shot of Tom and his wonderful wife Sue at the Four Seasons Wailea, Maui last September....
