Ooh. More nice pictures!

Great news. Jean & I plan to be there.

Well, i won’t be back from FL the first weekend. Seems churlish to hope for rain . . .

I’m retired so lots of availability. If you like Jo Ann and I can work with you to find a date that works.
Would have to be after Oct 23rd.

I thought folks went to Florida for the winter and came back in the spring. Perhaps that was YEARS ago?

All depends if a Hurricane just came through and trashed your condo. . .

Mesa Arizona seems to be the winter destination for a bunch of my acquaintances.

No hurricanes??? Well, I did Fort Huachuca, Arizona in 1971 or 1972…VERY dry!

My folks used to winter vacation to Scottsdale, just a little to the North. My oldest is in Tuscon year round and hates it.
