Family and Friends

Dear Family and Friends,

We have had a wonderful weekend. First we visited our daughter, Kylie and grandson Bryce. They live close to San Francisco in Dublin, California. We enjoyed going with Bryce to pick out pumpkins and playing in the park on Saturday.

Here is a picture of Kylie, our grandson Bryce, Chuck holding our grand dog, Ziggy and me.

On Sunday we drove to Santa Rosa to visit Chuck's sister, Audrey and her husband, Jim. Audrey and Jim will be visiting Cuenca the first two weeks of November with their friends Lynda and Jeff. This will be Audrey's and Jim's fourth trip to Cuenca. They have almost attained resident status based on number of visits.

Mary and Steve....known by many as "SOZ - South of Zero" bloggers emailed us and invited us to drop in for a visit since we would be close by. We left Santa Rosa this morning and drove to visit Mary and Steve. We already felt we knew them because of their blog...and they said the same about us. We just started in talking like we had known each other for years.

Mary prepared us a nice brunch and as you might guess our topic of choice was Ecuador.

We had a delightful visit and are so glad we got to meet them. Unfortunately our visit was not nearly as long as we would have liked but we had to get back on the road.

We took turns taking pictures of ourselves.

Keep up the good work Mary....we all love your blog.

Tomorrow we hope to see Crater Lake in Oregon. We are working our way back to Richland and ultimately back to Cuenca.

With love,
Nancy and Chuck


  1. We had such fun and I was so wound up from the excitement of meeting you two in person (or maybe it was the 5-hour Energy) that my afternoon nap was impossible. I was still up late enough to read your post last night. Now I want to plot out a map of Cuenca so when finally get down there we can be sure to find a place within walking distance of all our new friends. Mary and Steve

  2. We've sure missed you! When I walk past Los Pinos I "wave." I've been in some writing deadlines and have been absent from the Internet. I'm getting caught up. We have our Mocha back and we're a family of three again! Hurry back...
