After many months of planning and organizing, we think we’re just about ready for our World Wonders cruise on the Viking Sun. But before we set sail, we were lucky to be able to spend time with some of our family and friends. In the interest of time and space, we can’t mention them all, but we thought we’d share a few photos of some of these farewells.
Before leaving our home, our grandkids and their pup paid us a visit. Lona, Lewi, and Lucy spent a fun afternoon at our home and Nana Neecie (that’s what they call Denise) made their favorite meal.
Our California kids Bucky and Max traveled from the Bay Area to Long Beach to spend a fun couple of days with us and take us to the ship. Wanting just a few last photos, Bucky got us up close and personal with the ship, raising the interest of the security guards and law enforcement. All ended well, and we said our goodbyes portside.
Our dear friend Karen also made the trek across LA for some coffee and hugs. We’ve been friends for a long time, and it’s always so great to see her.
As we’ve noted before, family and friends mean everything to us. Over the past few weeks, we’ve shared breakfasts, lunches, and dinners with people we know and love. We’ve also exchanged messages, phone calls, and conversations with loved ones, and we will hold these all in our hearts as we make this journey. We are very grateful for their gifts of time!
