We had a good flight home and have enjoyed reuniting with family and friends. We were picked up from the airport and welcomed home with dinner and decorations by our daughters and grandchildren. They had gotten down some of the decorations (from the excessive collection I have amassed over the years) out of the attic and did a wonderful job of making the house feel like Christmas. Freddie enjoyed being able to volunteer for his regular shift at the Hospital the 2 Tuesday’s that we were home. We were able to catch up with our friends at Amelia Island, who are getting their boat ready to go to the Bahamas next year and our friends at Rocky’s, where we had Stray Cat hauled out for repairs before we left. We also managed to squeeze in Doctors and Dentist appointments, Christmas shopping in addition to lots of cooking and feasting. The hardest thing about cruising is being away from family and we were only away for just over 2 months. But now it is time put the decorations away and head back to Stray Cat and warm weather. I am just a little anxious as to how the boat has been without us during this time. We have also been keeping up with our new friends on Jalapeno who are now in Puerto Rico, enjoying their adventures and are ready to continue on with ours. Merry Christmas in America, Happy New Year Georgetown!
