In between reunions and outings with our friends and neighbors back home, we had lots of excitement with the arrival of Hurricane Matthew on the scene in early October. Matthew was a category 4 storm as it wreaked havoc in the Caribbean and buzzed the east coast of Florida. Luckily, Collier and Lee counties were spared his wrath.
After a long weekend with Jacksonville refugees seeking shelter from the storm, we said goodbye to Steph and the wee ones and battened down the hatches. Departing Miami for the first leg of our trip to the Bordeaux region in France, we're on our way to JFK, then Paris.
The fun year of travel continues in Europe. Stay turned!!!
