Fun Life at Sun Life

I have been real kicked back since returning from Mexico, as I picked up a cold on the plane coming back.  We have just hung around Sun Life RV Resort and met up with friends for dinner a few times.
On our last visit we discovered Red, White & Brew, a neat, local restaurant with a wonderful menu and a good selection of wine and beer.  We have been there so often we have joined the frequent diner's club.  If you are in the area check it out.
One of those times was a reunion of people who all met at Betty's RV Park in Abbeville.  Dave, Jim, Tony, Dan, Merlene, Sarah, Nanc and MaryBeth had a fun time getting caught up on all our travels.  We have gotten together with all of them several times at different places in our travels.  Truly one of the great things about our lifestyle is seeing friends all over the country.
Another day, another visit to Red, White and Brew.  This time with Mike and Linda.  I worked with Linda thirty years ago in Washington before she moved to Mesa to teach.  On our first visit to this area in 2009 we surprised her with a visit and have gotten together both here and in WashPA several times since then.   It's always great to see them no matter what part of the country we are in. 
Well Pittsburgh had the big ducky and so does Sun Life.
Well, not really:)
We went to the Mesa Flea Market where they have everything all the winter visitors need and more stuff than anyone really needs.  We did find a new RV outdoor rug, the only thing we wanted.  We can now say, "Been There, Done That".
Every afternoon here at Sun Life they have a band for happy hour.  It is a fun time to get together and enjoy the outdoors.  There is also a restaurant by the pool where you can get, drinks, snacks or a meal.  To paraphrase, isn't it great that a bunch of "old" people can get together and have a good time and nothing but a good time. 
Rene, Lance, Carol, Suzanne and Nanc at happy hour.  We met them here on our first visit two years ago.  Rene and Lance worked together at Sun Life of Canada insurance company and have come full circle as they now both winter here at Sun Life RV Resort.
 And of course we have enjoyed the spa and pool and the warm Arizona sunshine.  This is why we are here.  Just look at that sky!!!
