John and I are wishing you a happy new year from Marco Island! We flew to Miami on the 29th and are now doing the things that we love here in Marco – playing tennis, jumping in the pool, going to the fish store, watching TV in the comfy chairs (known as Chandler and Joey), and having John be cabana boy serving me drinks by the pool.
The weather here has been great so far. The daytime temperatures are in the 70’s with lots of sun. And although the pool thermometer assures us that the pool is 82, when we jumped in, wow, was it cold. As it turns out, after using our thermapen to test the water, it was only 76.
Our New Year’s Eve celebration consisted of margaritas, fresh shrimp cocktail, Chilean sea bass in a mushroom coating, chipotle sweet potatoes and spinach souffle. John was the fish and margarita man and I did the vegetables. We didn’t make it to midnight, though, we fell asleep in our chairs watching The Thin Man.
Happy New Year!
