A Rosy Day

This morning saw the arrival of roses from Tom for Mother's Day. They are very, very beautiful - a mix of white and yellow.

Today at the Visitor Center, Dick talked to visitors from Japan, England, Canada, The Netherlands, Muskegon, and even Wisconsin! There were 47 visitors in all on his shift. The Japanese didn't speak English that well, but Dick says that the lady from London spoke English quite well indeed!

When we watch people walking up and down Front Street, we can usually tell which ones are tourists - but we certainly can't always tell where they all come from. I really had no idea that visitors to this area were so diverse!

I had fun shopping for travel size items for our cruise - it's the most fun I've ever had in a drugstore. They make all kinds of things for air travel now which meet the requirements of the new regulations.

From 5 to 7 p.m. we all played Wow (the two of us, Tom, Jana, Laurie and Dylan). In honor of Mother's Day, Laurie and I got to choose the activity. It was great - I completed two quests and picked up 2 new ones. We had a great time!

Dick did fish and scallops on the grill - we are trying hard to stick to the low fat diet.

One week from today we'll be driving to Canton to stay with Bill and Jan and one week from tomorrow the 4 of us will fly to Copenhagen!!!!! The countdown has begun!
