Visit to Nocatee – May 6, 2019

Went to visit Roger and Terry in their new home by Del Webb (Pulte Homes) in Nocatee, Florida. They took us around and showed us the whole area. We went to Ponte Vedra Beach, Mickler Beach and toured the Del Webb development Community Center and lovely homes. Saw snake birds (Anhingas) with their fledglings on their nests at Bird Island near Nocatee. We went to see the Guana River State Park and saw lots of men fishing. One fellow caught a really big snook. Had a wonderful visit.

New Years Celebration

We celebrated New Years week with Bree, Bella and Joel from Friday thru Wednesday . Lana, Mark, Quincy and Zachary came out to celebrate on Sunday. Had a barbecue and played in the pool.  We ate out at Riverview on New Years Eve and saw a group on a bicycle trip New Years Day.   They went from Sanford to New Smyrna and back.

Pictures from Thanksgiving at Bree’s, Nov 2018

We are visiting our daughter in Columbia, SC for Thanksgiving this year. Today it is 38 degrees out. We took some pictures of their new green house that Joel and Bree built from scratch.

This is the new greenhouse. The house is 16 feet by 16 feet and about 10 feet tall. This morning when it was 34 degrees out it was 41 degrees inside the greenhouse with a small thermostatic fan heater.
The long 2 x 4s sticking out are to hang plants on in the summer.
More views.
Joel heading to work when it was approximately 38 degrees on a clear sunny day.
Another view of his favorite motorcycle.
This is the one Bree rides.
