Now the specifics:
Julie and Kathy decided to cook us Father’s Day dinner. They had shrimp, lobster tail for Mike, steak and a large selection of things to go along. One of the best meals I have ever had. Got presents from my kids and grand kids. A great day.
The other main attraction this week was our trip to Assateaque State Park on the Assateaque barrier reef off the coast of Maryland. Kathy got to see a lot of wild horses, lay on the beach and I got to spend a lot of time with my friend Jim and his wife Joyce. That’s about all I’m going to say about it now. I’ll get pictures organized and do an entry just on the trip. Stay tuned.
That is it for this week. I’ll have the travel entry done with pictures later this week. Bye for now.
