Spring has sprung and after a couple of false starts we have sold the
boat. We have looked back at the 9 years that we had Tally Ho and boy,
did we have a great time. I estimate that we did about 20,000 miles in
the boat and for the last two years we have not been as adventurous as
we were in the previous 7. The new owners are as excited about getting
the boat as we were when first first bought it.
Our plans are now to do some travelling on land and start to plan for
the next few years. We are both getting older and aches and pains seem
more plentiful than last year. We have already planned a month long trip
to Europe and also we plan on spending another month in Florida to see
what summer is like down there. Is it just too hot? We plan on finding
out in August. (Mad dogs and Englishmen!)
Our grandchildren are growing up fast. We don't see that much of them
due to their very hectic schedule, but when we do see them it is great.
Our children are both busy with work and their partners. We too, are
also keeping busy. We have started a Pickleball (a great sport, akin to
badminton, tennis and ping pong) program at our local recreation center.
it has taken a while to get going but it is now looking good and
attendance increases weekly. We play twice a week. If we get more
players perhaps we'll be able to play more days.
