Christmas 2013

We started our morning with continental breakfast in the lounge of the hotel as the restaurant was closed and delivered b-fast to our room the night before.  Then we opened our prezzie from each other and parted ways for a good chunk of the day – the very best gift was giving each other space!  And after we connected up again…We Had A Blast!

Packed up the picnic that we bought at the deli and drove all over looking for a place to enjoy our Christmas feast.  First tried the beach but the wind threatened to blow us over or carry us to Neverland without the aid of Tinker Bell!!  Image

Our map blew out of the car with the wind so we headed out to find Virginia Lake/Park by our noses and found it to be a true treasure! An aviary,
