Happy Holidays from Java

Happy Holidays from Java

We recently  spent two days climbing the third highest mountain in Central Java, Mount Lawu.  It was an incredible experience on many levels.  The journey took us 11 kilometers up the mountain and despite the pouring rain as we hiked up, we were given the beautiful and wonderful gift of a perfect sunset and then a perfect sunrise.  Here are a few of the pictures from this experience.  Expect to hear more about it in the days to come.

We wish you a wonderful holiday season full of laughter, love and fabulous memories.  

 Happy Holidays from our family to yours.

Thank you for all of your support, love and encouragement!

      Hi Colleen. I was thinking about you on the hike. Thanks to you and your amazing training, I didn’t die. I felt like I was going to a few times, but my muscles performed beautifully. I kept saying to everyone, “Colleen would be so proud of me right now!” Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. Thanks for everything.

      Thanks Dora. Have fun. What would have made our hike perfect was having you and Margie there waiting with some of your delicious food, but I guess it will have to wait until we see you in San Diego in July. Happy Holidays.
