My sister and her husband arrived Monday night. I picked them up at the Ft. Myers airport. It poured buckets all night, but my sister got up the next morning and went out with cup of coffee in hand to watch the sunrise. It was 10 below zero when they left Vermont and they had 20 inches of new snow the day before. She laughed at me for having on my morning sweater.
We took a tour of town and beaches, went out to lunch, and mostly relaxed on Tuesday. On Wednesday we made a trip to the Marie Selby Botanical Gardens in Sarasota. The orchids were in bloom. Even though I had reminded her to bring her camera before we left, I forgot mine. I took pictures with my camera, but the cable to get them off the phone is at home.
I should have reminded them about sun block, I guess. They both got red faces. To me, putting on sunblock is routine--wash your face, brush your teeth, put on sunblock, start your day.
They are glad for the break from the unrelenting winter and my sister and I have been laughing and laughing while brother in law rolls his eyes, but smiles.
