Happy New Year. Welcome to a new year filled with new adventures for all of us.  It might just be your mind wandering away in a good book or your body joining us on a more active adventure.  Not that “active” is a very strong word for any of us.  The joy of our adventures is that they are geared to a slower level of activity.

As with most years we do not do a lot of things during the winter months.  Those are for us to stay indoors to be safe and warm.  Occasionally we wander out but for the most part the roads are slick, the wind is blowing and our winter coats are too heavy for our bodies to hold up.

We do start the year off with a trip in January that you have been reading about.  A small group has taken up the offer of going to Panama without going on a long cruise.  They will depart on Feb. 23 for this wonderful adventure showing them Panama in much greater depth.  A stay in Panama City; out into the rainforest; a full day cruise to the locks; and ending with a beach resort.

Those of us who really want to get out of the cold and start our warm weather a little early are leaving on March 11 for two weeks on Oahu, the north shore of the island.  We have rented houses and truly plan on relaxing and staying warm.  We will take short adventures to the Arizona Memorial; the surfing beaches, the new Disney resort, Turtle Bay and the local hangouts.  It won’t be hard for us to fit in with the general public and “chill”.

Two cruises are available in April: the first goes out of Ft. Lauderdale on April 1 for seven days with Princess to St. Maarten, St. Thomas, Grand Turk and Princess Cay.  The second cruise (this one with Celebrity) departs Ft. Lauderdale on April 25 and goes through the Panama Canal ending 16 days later in Seattle.

In the spring, plans are being made to travel to Ashland for Romeo and Juliet as well as The Very Merry Maids of Windsor.  A trip to Victoria is scheduled for late April; August will find us in Leavenworth for 2 nights and 3 plays; an overnight at Crystal Mountain is in the works; Dinner Dates and Mystery Trips start up again in April and will run throughout the summer and into the fall.

Why not think about joining us as we go about being “active”.  Come along for the ride.  Get on the email list for periodic updates  (linda.finch@gmail.com) or call to be put on the snail mail list  (253) 927-8207.  The calendar should be ready shortly with more dates and further information.
