Giving Thanks

We had another busy week with Thanksgiving, birthdays, saying good bye to some friends and getting ready to fly to Cancun for vacation.
On Wednesday we went to see Alan and Sharon's new to them RV. They replaced the old fifth wheel with an Itasca motor home. It is in great shape and they are already planning to meet up with us in Tucson in February.
They new rig looks great with two slides and plenty of storage.
On Thursday we went back to their place for Thanksgiving and were greeted by Elsie their princess and shaggy Murray their wonderful dachshunds. They always give their dogs names related to Australia where Alan was born.

As you can see we had a wonderful traditional Thanksgiving dinner and a bit of football, even a Steelers' win.
On Friday we said good-bye to Mikko and Cathy who were heading to Benson. As you can see Mikko is a man who only has one drink a day.

We spent the weekend celebrating our birthdays and packing for our birthday trip to Cancun. We are sure happy to be away from Mesa where the long range forecast is for highs in the 60's and lows in the 40's. This big difference between high and low temps is one reason that we like Florida better than the Southwest. 
Here is our view at the Secrets Silversands for the next two weeks. We are looking forward to some serious fun in the sun on the beach and by the pool. This is our sixth time to a Secrets resort and our second visit to Silversands.
Since this is a continuation of our birthday celebration they greeted us with champagne, balloons and rose petals. We sure love the way we get pampered when we visit Secrets resorts. 
Rick and Denise joined us from Pittsburgh for the first week and we are looking forward to getting caught up with them while soaking up some sun. We truly do have much for which to be thankful.
