My sister flew in last Sunday and Monday we drove to NC to visit with my brother and sister-in-law. What a visit. They really went all out. A ferry ride to Ft. Fisher to see the aquarium, a helicopter ride to view the area in which they live, a boat ride on the Cape Fear river to learn some history of the area (and a view of a battleship). We drove back to my place on Friday and on Saturday I took her on a tour of where I live and also the town of Helen. She couldn't believe the number of people tubing on the river. I told her I wouldn't want to eat any fish that came out of it. Alas, she had to fly home yesterday. It was a wonderful time with family this last week and I look forward to the time she and I will spend together next year.
