We drove for a couple of hours North up Interstate 95 and eventually found Ellie`s place. The traffic was pretty thick, but it flowed well and we only had a few close shaves.

It is LOVELY to be with Ellie - we haven`t seen her for a year (except on Skype).

Saturday 9th November

We checked out some malls looking for a new pair of trekking sandals for Marian. Eventually we found exactly what we wanted at Gander`s which also had the largest selection of guns I have even seen, including some AK47s (but these turned out to be pellet [air] guns).




--------


Later we drove North up US1 to Stuart where we cold called on Ray Ivers who we reckon is a second cousin once removed of Marian. He is a charming chap in his 70s and he invited us back next Saturday to show us round historic Stuart. See

Ray is heavily into ancestry and had all his info laid out on his pool table.



Sunday 10th November

We drove South down Interstate95 to Delray where there was a great wine and sea food festival going on. Lovely walk along the beach. I picked up a piece of wisdom:
I read about the evils of drinking....so I gave up reading

Later we took a walk along the beach at Delray and skyped Ariane, just to make her extra jealous.

Sunday evening we moved to a swanky hotel (Hilton DoubleTree) 5 minutes walk from Ellie, as her flatmates were about to return from a few days away.

It did make me insanely jealous. In fact I'm still green with envy even now.

However it's fair to say that every single one of your texts has encouraged a new level of envy. Keep going guys, keep making me jealous xxx
