…over my 61 years, I have been blessed with many Friends.
And many of these friends are asking me where the heck my blog has gone. Hmmm…See, I was thinking (always dangerous) that maybe I was inundating people with them, so decided to cut back. However, what I’m hearing is that many of my dear friends like to read em! So, I’ve got some catching up to do!
Here at Cape San Blas(t) our pack keeps growing!
from left to right (Mikey, Ken, Ruth, Susan, (Trevor is missing) Kim (Claudio is missing), Jann, Nancy, Christine, Phil, Michele, (Leslie is missing), Catharine (Pete is missing) and Me
Most of our new friends are snowbirds, however, some are also owners here – but ALL of them are dog people. Many of our closest friendships have been through our dogs. Most of you know that is how Mikey and I met…and he didn’t have a dog!
Here is Jan and her lovely family…. Jan is a fellow photographer and an owner here. Jan blesses us with her wildlife photography, beautiful sunrises and sunsets.
Here’s Carol and Andy…another very talented photographer and owner!
… we also have Catharine who wears many hats as a photographer and Professional Dog Trainer.
and her hubby, Peter – who is a vet and with this pack, very handy! ok, now your getting why I don’t need to take my camera out every day?
Suz & Trev…our dear friends…Love you both LOOONG time
And then there’s Ken (who introduced Mikey and I) and Ruth..again dear long time friends
Christine & Phil whom we met here last year! Love you both LARGE
Nancy Jean, we met last year and have visited back and forth from Michigan and Pickering this past year.. beautiful inside and out.
Jannie, our little leprechaun “shenanagator” we met last year and again visited back and forth to Michigan.. so thoughtful and giving
Kim and Claudio..we met them here last year, but really got to know them this year.. Love you both
Our fun Wisconsin friends that brought us some of their amazing CHEESE!
Leslie..where did you go!? I didn’t get to say good-bye to you. So wonderful to have met you and I hope we can keep in touch!
and here is a random friend that we met just today…
So…you get the picture (no pun intended) right? We got a lotta friends.. and they keep growing. If I’ve missed anyone, it’s cuz I haven’t got a good picture of you..so c’mon over and we’ll fix that.
Now to the point of this blog. Like family, there are many types of friendships..acquaintences, old, new, casual, besties…When it comes to socializing here at the Cape, due to the size of our pack, many times we can’t do it all together. But that doesn’t mean that we don’t try!
Merriam Webster defines friends as:
So blessed to call you all my friends.
I’ll leave you with this:-
