SANCTUARY COVE, GOLD COAST AUSTRALIA - FEBRUARY 2003

We have successfully exchanged in 10 times before and would not mind revisiting any of these places.  We remain in touch, indeed friends, with everyone except our first exchange where we've lost contact (so, Larry, if you should read this please e-mail and let us know how you are all doing!).

Follow the links to see our past exchanges.  As I have compiled this - looking at the pictures from our albums - I can't help feeling old.......ugggggggh!

 Also various hospitalities in both directions including my friend

5 of us.jpg (421968 bytes)   Bill and his new English friends enjoying a drink in a country pub.  We had gotten on so well in talking about a possible exchange he came on over to say hello!  On 16 March, 2001 we all invaded him and again March 2002.  Richard and Jude went again in October 2003.  In fact we are all back and forth quite frequently but never actually exchanged.  Bill & Lee are just the nicest people.

For several years I corresponded with Keith from up-state New York but never managed to get the exchange.  So how great it was to hear that Keith and Cathy would be coming on their honeymoon to UK and then on to Ireland where they had an exchange.  This meant they came for a weekend in September 2003 and, at last, we met.  The picture below is of Keith and Cathy on Gold Hill, Shaftesbury and of Keith, Theresa and Shane at The George pub on the river in Fordingbridge.  Gold Hill and The George are elsewhere on this web site.  We got on so well that weekend we were sorry to see them set off for The Cotswolds, Wales and then across the Irish Sea:

  <<<Keith and Cathy on Gold Hill and us having a pint at The George>>>...so hope we will be able to visit them in USA before too long.
