We’re spending a few days in Dave’s newly adopted town of Estero, south of Ft Myers, FL. He lives in a country club with several friends, including his ladyfriend, Bunny, and his long-time friend, Andy. Their houses are all next to each other, overlooking their pools, golf course and sometimes gators!
Of course, you can’t be in Florida without doing those retirement things… and since this IS Jim’s retirement trip, we got signed up for lots of activities, such as bocce ball and ballroom dance lessons.
It was really fun to just relax and not worry about driving or work or the house or…. wait, we have a house? After two weeks and 4,200 miles, we’ve forgotten that we have a house somewhere!
Well, off to happy hour and then a few rounds of Singapore Gin (that’s a card game, not a drink. But a drink may improve Lisa’s card game). Tomorrow it’s supposed to rain, but if the clouds cooperate, we hope to get in a Spring Training game as the Red Sox train nearby. We’re keeping our fingers crossed!
