Many of you know that Wally and I met Mary and Pat (Iowa) , along with Marie and Phil (Massachusetts) at Sandals Royal in 2003, and that we have vacationed together since. Unfortunately, just before our Sandals vacation in February, 2008, Marie lost Phil to cancer. Wally and I acted on something we've been planning for several years. 'Sandals North' in Myrtle Beach began in earnest. After much planning Pat, Mary, and Marie arrived in Myrtle Beach on September 10.

(1.) My gift to Mary and Marie! Remember all the good times we have shared together, my friends! (2.) - (4.) A huge thank you to the Sandals Royal Caribbean Management. We can't say enough about our special friends at SRC who always go out of their way to treat us like family. When they heard we were planning a "Sandals North" vacation last to include Marie, they sent us home with shirts and water-proof containers for the event.
