Our three week break from traveling concluded. It was helpful to have extra time in Denver to tend to various appointments, to take a deep breath, and to enjoy a house stay while Steve’s cousins were away. Timing worked out for us to occupy their house while they traveled, so it was a win-win for everyone.
Highlights of the three weeks included time with our daughter, Stephanie, and son-in-love, Shane; Steve’s Mom; and, numerous friends. Plus having Wi-Fi and time for a extended Google video chat with our son, Jeremy, and daughter-in-love, Michelle.
Time with Stephanie and Shane
We look forward to reuniting with “Tranquility” our trailer back in Tucson.
It’s January 14, 2019! We’re taking a three-week hiatus from camping while we house-sit for cousins in Denver, Colorado. Tranquility, our trailer, is staying in RV Storage in Arizona until we are reunited later in January. We are tending to personal business while in Denver and building our itinerary for February-July. Having Wi-Fi readily available to us has been a big bonus. We are indeed very grateful to our cousins!
My goal for 2019 is to write blog posts more frequently. I’ve devoted more time to posting on Instagram/Facebook. This needs to change so we can keep a nice record of our travels and experiences in one place.
