Yesterday we woke up early even though it was new years day. The new years eve party was quite a bash. We had tons of food down by the fire served with hot chocolate. Everybody soon moved up to Dan's unit for games. They played all kinds of new years eve games such as charades and electricity. At midnight we went over to the beach for fireworks which were shot off at the public beach close to mom's condo. The older young kids ended up in Beth's hot tub. Diane went to bed at 2:00 am and the party was still going strong. Dan came down to use the hot tub around 4:00 am and by 4:30 am the party started winding down. New Years day mom and I spent the morning cleaning her condo in preparation for moving out. The new renters were moving in on the first which meant we had to move out. Ruth and Fedi had to be out of their condo also on the first. No one wanted the party to quit so Ruth and Fedi booked themselves into a hotel just down the beach. Beth and Greg decided to head for home, Greg wanted to watch the college championship games but that left us a room at their condo so we did not book into the hotel. The only problem with moving is the fact there is no internet at Beth and Greg's so no updating was done yesterday. Below is a picture of their condo from the road. It is so roomy and comfortable.
The day was cool but not cool enough that we cancelled the walk on the beach. Almost everyone ended up at Beth's condo for the afternoon and evening. We were all enjoying the hot tub when this blue heron flew down to watch this strange soup bubbling merrily. I think he was checking out if we were food.
Really he was watching Abram fishing with his net.
Abram caught 2 good size mullet on his second cast.
Spark and Mark were playing horse shoes
Ruth and Fedi's family pulled out this morning for home. We are staying until tomorrow morning. Sure hate to see this wonderful vacation come to an end.
