Most of our U.S.-based cruisemates have a three- or four-day weekend coming up. Do you have any special plans for the weekend?
Mark and I are spending a couple of days in St. Augustine. We love it there, plus the Cathedral is having its annual festival and it sounds like fun. (He's a member of the Cathedral and sold raffle tickets, so we have to go see if we won anything anyway!) We'll also probably hop up to Jacksonville to go to the zoo, shop the antique stores, and visit some friends.

Gram and PapaBill are leaving Wednesday morning on the Legend out of NY.
Memorial Day weekend will be Saturday San Juan, Sunday St Thomas, and Monday
Tortola. It's a tough life but somebody has to do it.
Holiday weekends are when we usually stay home to avoid the crowds. Four days off with nothing to do but finishing painting the house, mowing the yard (note I didn't say "grass"), weedeating the rest of the acres, finally getting the plants out of pots and into the ground. Fun stuff like that. But I'd sure like to back to St Augustine. Enjoy Michelle.
Leaving Orlando Friday night and spending the night in Jacksonville to attend a friends son's high school graduation Saturday am in Jax. and then on to Kingsland, GA ( a whopping 30 minutes or so from Jax) for another friends' daughters' grad party and then we'll be done with the graduating!!!!!!! Will head home Sunday afternoon and not eat anymore picnic food for awhile!
Friday- Early afternoon we leave for weekend home 1 hr N. of Dayton (St. Marys) for busy weekend with lots of company. My 2 sisters and spouses Friday evening and overnight. Dinner at favorite restaurant on the lake, a wild game of Tripoley later and maybe the flea market on Sat. Weather permitting, we'll get the pontoon in Fri. or Sat.
Sat.-Friday's company leaves and we get ready for Sun. and Mon.
Sun.- Two of our married sons and their families are coming. Dads and pre-schoolers camp out in the back yard. We'll fish, boat , cook out and have a campfire with S'mores, weather permitting. They are staying over.
Mon.- will be more of the same. Grandkids include a 14 yr old granddaughter and her 4 yr. old brother, an almost 5 yr. old granddaughter and her 2 yr. old brother. The pre-schoolers are "Two peas in a pod" and get along famously. Last year, Bill took darling pics of "Fishin' cousins" with the two of them sitting on our dock with their fishin' poles.
