Departure No travel todayArrival Legacy Harbour Marina, Ft. Myers, FL
We closed on our new home on February 13th and have been shopping since! We plan to move some items from Connecticut to Florida, but decided to decorate with some new things too. This past weekend was the busiest we have been since arriving in Ft. Myers, with the exception of our visit with my mom and sister. Friends Jill and Glen on "Last Dance" arrived, along with friends Barbara and Ken on " Loop Dreams". We spent some time catching up with them. We hadn't seen Jill and Glen since Thanksgiving and Barbara and Ken since just before Christmas. That is what is so great about this trip, you meet folks, travel with them for awhile, and them meet up with them again further along the way.
Bob and I, along with our dogs, Tucker and Willow, spent most of Friday at our new home-waiting for deliveries. You know how deliveries work, they promise early in the day and finally by mid-afternoon they arrive! First the patio table and chairs arrived. While Bob proceeded to assemble the chairs, UPS arrived with our new Select Comfort Mattress!

|Oh my gosh, so many boxes!!|
Then the doorbell rings again, and the bedroom furniture arrived! Fortunately, the delivery men brought in the three pieces and set them up, so we continued working on the patio furniture.
Another friend of Lynda's (formerly from Connecticut, now in Florida!) came for a short visit on Saturday. Barbara Fackelman and her husband, David live in Mt. Dora. Barbara is a former co-worker and housemate of Lynda's and they hadn't seen each other for over fifteen years. We enjoyed their short afternoon visit and they headed off to Estero to celebrate their 15th wedding anniversary. We hope to visit with them more often as we will be in Florida more frequently now!!
The weekend is the celebration of the "Edison Festival of Light". Just after dark on Saturday evening we enjoyed a fireworks celebration from the flybridge of our boat with Barbara and Ken from "Loop Dreams". We were so close, the percussion was outstanding!
