I'll say again, I lost all the pictures from Uncle Eds and most from David & Lisa's that included PEOPLE!!!!! David, Lisa, Mallery,Travis & Billy...ME!
So AT LEAST we can share the scenic version of Emerald Bay and know that the human factor - their hospitality, enthusiasm (pretty obvious its one of my favorite things!) and warmth were even more fantastic. :O(
While we talk and text regularly, even hearing some of the same stories and about new college friends that we don't know yet or barely know is always better in person. There was an annual Volleyball Tournament going on in Emerald Bay (a private beach that David and Lisa got us into) which clearly was organized weeks/months in advance, which meant I couldn't show off my new hip and hip action (hahahahahahahahaha), and the kids and Billy couldn't either but we were comfortable, uncrowded, and entertained. The Pacific Ocean was anything but.... There were a wickedly powerful currents and undertow so I had to keep my eye out when Billy, Mallery & Travis swam. In case I needed to go after them. (HAHAHAHAHAHA) Ahhhh , there was a time....
These cousins seemed to be happy to share their digs with us.. in spite of busy schedules and little advance notice. David has never grown up and views life through the eyes and energy of a child. Lisa is inspired by his livelihood and pretty much all that life has to offer. They were great positive spirits to be around. Thanks guys..
