Days 8 & 9 – January 18 &19 – Carlsbad, CA – Days 3 & 4
This is a short blog that contains nothing of interest. We have done nothing the last two days but laze around the condo.
I have been working on the 750 piece jigsaw puzzle I brought with me. I thought it wouldn’t be too hard. I was wrong. It is a shaped puzzle so there is no straight border; the edge follows the outline of the dogs. Also every piece is different and most pieces overlap two or more dogs, flowers, etc. so it has been taking a long time to get anything done.
We didn’t even leave the condo yesterday. Today we connected with two couples that live in the LA area that we met on the World Cruise in ’09 and made arrangements to have lunch with them – Charles and Evelyn this Saturday and Bill and Lynn next Saturday. It will be really good to see them all again. I sent them a copy of the resort map so they would know where to find us,
We walked down the hill to the Residence Check-in building to buy a stamp to send a sympathy card home. The sun was setting as we walked down so it was quite nice.
This sculpture sits on the lawn just where you turn into the Residences Check-in. The fellow is holding a copy of The Wall Street Journal in one hand and petting his dog with the other. It is called, “Keeping in Touch.”
We uploaded a bunch of geo-caches in the area. As a matter of fact there are a couple of them down in the marsh we plan to visit tomorrow. We will combine some sightseeing with bird-watching and geo-caching.
So. That’s about it folks. I warned you there would be days like this. And….I promise; there will be more of them during our three week stay.
