  1. Thanks Ron and Kathy. Just what I needed after chipping away at 3″ of ice still on the driveway two days after the storm.

  2. WOW! Thanks for the fabulous photos. It is bitterly cold here, ice, snow and ice and very hazardous driving, just staying in and doing lots of reading, knitting and cleaning out cupboards! We were in Fl last week and it was chilly there too! Looking forward to your return and seeing you again. Olwen

  3. Thanks for sharing the beautiful photos. The sunset in Key West might be one of the best shots I have seen anywhere! You captured the sun and the sailboat at just the right time/place. Winter here in NJ has been harsh, so you are in a good place. Hope you are both well. Enjoy the journey.
    Fair Winds! Love, Elizabeth and Frank

  4. Great photos. Pictures of Key West brought back fond memories: wish we were there.

  5. Just took a tour of you wonderful 2014 photos! Great!
