Absolutely unbelievable that my last update was in November. Very sorry about that!
First of all, we are all ok. We have had very few cases of the virus in Sechelt and no community spread. Things are starting to loosen up but very slowly. Grocery shopping has continued but most other stores were closed. And let's face it, at our age who needs more stuff anyway! Of course the travel industry is a bust. Larry cancelled over $200,000 in travel bookings over the past couple of months. And that brings me to our travels...
This was supposed to be a big year. First a 48 day cruise in March from Fort Lauderdale, around the Horn and back to Vancouver. Cancelled the day before we were supposed to leave. Then a TravelOnly National Conference trip to Cancun in June for Larry's travel business - cancelled. Then a cool trip - cruise from Amsterdam around the British Isles and back to Amsterdam, train to Berlin then train to Prague - all cancelled. We still have a TravelOnly Seminar at Sea training cruise booked in November but that is not looking good either. The only good thing - when we unpacked the suitcases in March the clothes were all clean and just had to be put away.
Now back to Christmas. Aaron, Tonye and Sofie came over Christmas Eve and left Boxing Day. We haven't seen them since but are on track to see them on June 14 when we're over in Vancouver for a Costco/medical run. Other than that our life is not very exciting. No travel and the Thrift Store is still closed. Lots of gardening though!
Larry was elected to the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 140 Sechelt in January and his role is the Public Relations Chairman. He has been very busy turning the place around like he did at Swan Lake RV Resort. The Legion has been so mismananged over the years and it was starting to turn the corner when they had to close on March 16th. They have now made plans to re-open on July 2nd for 5 days a week.
A very disappointing year. Our sincerest wish is that all of you are (and have been) well and will continue to be. Not sure when the next update will be!
