Sister's are great!

My sis and me!! What a great day I had yesterday. I left in the a.m. and drove to Apollo Beach, which is only a little over 100 miles from here to visit my sister. They just had a house built in one of the Deb Webb communities and their house is wonderful!

After our hello's, we put "ma ma" (Nancy's mom who lives with them) and I in the car and we drove to the club house in their community. Very impressive for sure but I was most impressed with the 'Coffee Room'! Who knew!! I had to take a picture of the coffee machine which makes lattes and any other coffee you'd like! I'd buy in this community just for the coffee room! Yes, I'm a coffee addict!

This is just a small shot of the huge pool! It's like being at a resort. They also had a resistance pool which is in the back left. The Del Webb communities are really beautiful and are built to allow folks to not have to leave the community!

These are some shots from the house, as we sat in the Lanai. Talk about peaceful. Bob would be asleep in 2 min. if he sat out here. It's really so different from having a house on the golf course. I think I'd prefer this setting even though we LOVE Ocala Palms, I think this setting is fantastic.
Ducks, turtles and birds galore! And yes, the occasional croc! But that's ok, they have to live somewhere!

The three Musketeers! Nancy, my sis and me!

This is where we had lunch. I was treated to the BEST hamburger!! Yes, my friends, I ate a burger and fries!!! AND I ate the entire meal!!!!
I was treated to my 'last meal' at this great grill on the beach. We had margarita's (Nancy and I), my sis had some cranberry and vodka drink and even 'MaMa' had wine! The wine was two for one and 'MaMa' seemed to enjoy both of them. I feel bad I didn't get a picture of her too!
I had one of the best days visiting with my 'sis'. We laugh every time we're together and just have a great time. Nancy is delightful and always a hoot as well. Even 'MaMa' was a so sweet and she's lucky to have my sis and Nancy to take care of her.
So a HUGE thank you, MAW!!! Love you lots!! And thanks for a wonderful day (and a blog post!). Now I'm off for my bike ride to work off the burger. If I don't post for a week, it just means I'm still riding my bike trying to work off the calories!

What a wonderful day. And the weather was most cooperative. I enjoy seeing the various communities in Florida, and Apollo Beach looks very inviting. Glad you enjoyed your trip.

Great pictures! I needed that! It is supposed to snow here again tomorrow and get really, really, really cold so the more pics of warm weather you can post the better!

Glad you had fun with your sister!
