Ed & Marilyn 'The Happy Wanderers' travel blog


We shared our morning coffee before a shower and getting dressed for Mass today. We enjoyed Mass and met two couples who are neighbors of ours. They invited us to join them for breakfast after we left the church, but we had plans with Mike & Marian and Chuck & Coletta today.

Marilyn & I had time for a quick run to the Walmart in Penitas to gas up the car and pick up a couple of items we need at home. As soon as we put things away, it was time to leave again.

We picked up Mike & Marian at their place and drove to Zucca’s Italian Restaurant where we were meeting Chuck & Coletta for lunch.

The food was excellent, although a bit pricey, but the servings were large enough that we had plenty to bring home with us once we had our fill.

We put our “doggie bag” lunch in the fridge at home and then returned to Mike & Marian’s house where the six of us visited for about an hour and then went inside to play Mexican Train.

We sure had fun with lots of laughter and continuous harassment of one another as we played the game.

Marian won the first two hands and appeared to be on her way to a second consecutive game win, but Marilyn edged her out near the end of the game.

Once the game was over, Marian served a delicious lemon cake with vanilla ice cream. Wow! That was good stuff.

It was nearly 7:00 by the time we returned home so we relaxed with the TV and computers.

It was certainly another wonderful day with friends, and we have another plan for tomorrow. We’ll be getting together with other friends for lunch at a Thai Restaurant.

Life is Good!
