Christmas In Memphis

We traded this —

On Sunday we took the Albury out for an afternoon ride and saw Santa aboard a dive boat heading toward the inlet.

For this —

At 4:00 AM Monday we started the 1000 mile trek back to Memphis for the holidays. 
Now, we're back in River City.

The lobby of the Peabody Hotel is always a sight to behold, but at Christmas it's truly a beautiful display of Christmas in Memphis.
Still... we'd rather be back in sunny Jupiter watching Santa float by on his boat.
But, I'm sure we'll make the most out of our stay and enjoy catching up with old friends.
A Bloody Mary from the lobby bar at the Peabody is a great start.

Cheers and Merry Christmas.

It's a re-run

But the end of year is a good time to reflect and it's always fun going back through these pictures. Most are mine, but some are excellent photos that were taken by others.
Lots of memories.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays

All these places have their moments •

All That We Have Is Now

from Doonesbury's page

A song by one of my contemporaries from Memphis. Some of you may remember, 'The Brand New Tennessee Waltz'.  In the day, Jesse left Memphis, choosing Canada over Vietnam.
Jesse Winchester passed away this year.

Baby, all that we have is now — that's it.

Speaking of now... our intrepid friends aboard Tivoli are offshore and about to round the southern tip of Sanabel Island. It appears they're heading up the Caloosahatchee River to Ft Myers.

Tivoli seems to enjoy a good night's cruise.
