Happy New Year

If you can forget the politics it was a great year with lots of travel to Arizona, Cape May, Maine with Tessa and Leila, and South Africa.  We finished it up with six days in NYC with our 16 year old granddaughter Tessa.  Since she lives in Olympia, WA she hadn’t had a chance to go there before, so we gave her the grand tour.  We visited museums,

Phew!  Not bad for 4 days (2 of our days were for travel).  We took subways to start the day but mostly walked and by late afternoon we were ready to head back to the apartment we were staying at.   It was a wonderful way to finish 2016.

Wishing all of you a Happy, Healthy New Year!
