Photographs 2017

Photos from other years:

Here are my recent photograph albums:

2017 was successful year. We saw in New Year in Victoria, Australia on vacation with Penny and family at Cape Otway. We had a couple of days in Melbourne before heading East to New Zealand. We had 15 days in NZ and spent 14 on the South Island. We had a night in Aukland before the long journey home via Honk Kong. We enjoyed everything about South Island and in particular the hospitality of Jan and Doug at their homes in Tasman and Kaikoura.

We returned home to face finishing our remodelling project. I was quite depressed in February when I reached the conclusion that it would take another year to finish the work. Getting people to work in England is very challenging. It is impossible to schedule English tradesmen. However, Chris and his gang did good landscaping work, Jon certified the electrics, Stuart did bathroom-4 and various other plumbing jobs. Nigel fitted the "old" kitchen units in the garage. Russell and his guys completed the floor and carpets. I continued to work on the garden and am very pleased with the results.

We enjoyed a visit this year from my sister Irene and her husband Robert in May. David came from California in June and Hazel visited in September. We hosted a BBQ in July for the Toastmasters. We had a family Burns Supper in January and celebrated our 50th Anniversary as a couple in December. We had a very enjoyable family vacation in Portavadie on Loch Fyne. Alison and I had a week in June in the Lake District and visited Hadrian's Wall. We had a few days in Sheffield with Elisabeth. We visited Norwich for our wedding Anniversary in March.

We had 9 weeks travelling in the Fall. We went to the States for 6 weeks and visited friends on the East Coast, family in Texas and friends in California. On return from the States, we attended weddings in Scotland and Vietnam.

We have done lots of "freeloading" this year and enjoyed the home hospitality of at least 12 families and caught up with many folks who have been dear to us over the years. We've stayed with folks in Australia, NZ, England, Scotland and USA. Thank You all. You know you are most welcome to visit and stay with us in England.
