Let Me In!!!

Not feeling the love

Bill and I are spending a very different summer this year…..apart! I have been waiting to write this, hoping for something to change. It is now September, Canada has just extended closure through November, and I am still in Utah while Bill is in Canada. Oh well, we have had a pretty good summer anyway, except for Bill’s broken foot. Watch out for uneven ground!!!!!

Note the painting he did of his grand dog, Daisy!!

Just before we left the marina, we were in the process of trying to help some locals, thinking of an Easter treat. We were not able to do it, but the marina’s beloved Lucio took over for us. He and his wife shopped and delivered the goodies for us. Thank you sooooo much Lucio!!

We hope to continue this upon our return.

So what has been happening these last 5 1/2 months?

We have learned how to zoom, actually talking to friends and family more than we used to.
held socially distanced birthdays, like this one for Abby, when the sheriffs dropped by.

I took a trip down south near St. George, Utah to play golf…

Kathy, Zibber, and me

and went camping with Andy and family at Flaming Gorge.

In the meantime, Bill has added onto his dock with the help of Dennis and Donna

oh, and Russo

painted, painted, and painted some more…

2020 was a milestone year for Bill, he turned 70!!!!! What a great celebration he had at Little Bow! He also celebrated Canada Day with the best of friends!!!

or float to Cananda

I also got to celebrate the 4th of July at our cabin in Brighton, Utah. No pancake breakfast or parade but still had a great day…

My son, Andy, Mr. 4th!
Emma, Claire, Abby, and Grace
a crazy round of Pickle Ball, the younger family members against the older members. The youngsters won!

Spending the whole summer in Park City, although away from Bill and dealing with the pandemic, has been fun…

Floating the Weber River, practicing for my float into Canada

Of course ladies golf on Tuesdays!

Riding my new E-bike all over town
socially distanced Happy Hours on the golf course, avoiding being hit by golf balls
keeping an eye on the Sand Hill Crane family
and doing a virtual wine tasting with Karen, Jim and Robin

I spent a lot of time at our cabin in Brighton this summer with family. We have been busy repairing and replacing the pantry. It all came together with a lot of help from friends like Tommy L. and Brian R.

It wasn’t all work, however. There was a lot of visiting, hiking, and frisbee golf…

Bill also spent more time having parties at his cabin at Little Bow.

Happy 70th Brenda!!!!

He also had a a great week with his daughter and son-in-law, Sara and Tommy and their dog Daisy…

Sorry, only a picture of Daisy, none of Sara and Tommy

I hadn’t seen my daughter and her family since Christmas, so I bit the bullet and flew to Boston the end of August. The flight on Delta was actually good and it was nice to arrive in a state that had successfully locked down at the beginning and now things were returning to a little more normal. Because I was coming from Utah, I had to provide a negative Covid-19 test result. If you have not had a test, they are no fun!

Stevie’s 2nd Birthday!
Growing up too fast!!!
Kennedy – 5 years old
Outdoor movie theater!

One day we want to West Beach in Beverly, MA and joined a few of Whitney’s friends…

Another day, Kennedy and I snuck out a put eyelashes on Jason’s cherished Jeep….

Jason was sure happy that we hadn’t glued or taped them on!

We also headed up to North Conway, New Hampshire. What a charming town!

Overlooking the golf course
rode on an old train…
and hiked to Diana’s Bath
A really fun trip!!!!!

Bill has also taken a couple of excursions, but somehow no pictures were taken.

Finally, the annual Ladies Frisbee Golf tournament occurred.

The ladies and their caddies
Trish, in the orange hat, won this year!!!
Emma won the Junior and I won the Senior categories. It was easy, we had on competition!

Well it has now been 6 months since Bill and I have been apart. We are talking of going back to the boat around December 1st and watching Loreto Covid-19 cases down there. So far they are much fewer than in Utah.

In the meantime, we hope you all stay safe and if you are in the states, we hope you survive this election season.
