We took a trip to South Florida to visit some very special friends this past weekend. Mark and Toni are people that walked into our lives in 1989... and it was the beginning of a life-long friendship. We were comfortable with each other from the start...and now, even when it has been a long time since we have been together - we just pick up where we left off. That is a blessing!

It was 80 degrees in the day time - and we even had the opportunity to go out on the boat in Port Charlotte Harbor. IN FEBRUARY! Now that is my kind of weather. LOL Eldon (the owner of the boat and driver for us) hunted until he found dolphins for us. We "chased" them for quite a while trying to get a good picture. We had such a good time.

It was good to visit with people that we love so much... and it was good to rest. (Now, Hal may not consider it to be much rest - since he drives and it was an 11 hour trip. And he did have to preach 3 times on Sunday morning. LOL) Maybe I should say I got some rest! Regardless, we are blessed.

Thank you Lord for precious friends.

(If any of the pics of the dolphins are good.... I will post them later)

Sounds like a great trip. There's nothing like old friends to recharge your batteries. I'm glad you got to go. :)
