The last week has been non-stop as we undertook a wide variety of Texan and touristy things whilst Lydia and friends were here. These included a San Antonio Spurs basketball game- sitting in the ‘nose-bleeders’ ( very, very high up seats), a road trip to Austin- the state and music capital, a day in Downtown San Antonio which included a boat trip and a meal in the revolving restaurant at the ‘Towers of America’, a visit to the cinema with waitresses serving food and drinks during the film ( we saw Focus, an action thriller with Will Smith). We all had treatments at the ‘Academy of Massage’ where students practise on members of the public ( Lynne would highly recommend Marvin, Denzil doesn’t want to talk about it!)
We visited many many shops where souvenirs and memorabilia were purchased and food and drinks sampled…sadly their 8 day holiday flew by and now they are back in London and we are back in our apartment and adjusting to the peace and quiet!
This morning we throughly enjoyed the performance of Cinderella streamed live to us- by the wonders of modern technology and Becky’s phone…Well done to everyone who took part- on stage and behind the scenes, it was lovely to feel such a part of a Friday afternoon at Windward.
This weekend we have got tickets to see the Scorpions play Austin- at ‘proper’ football and we’ll be hoping that Saints perform well at Stamford Bridge.
Denzil has found a group where he can coach football every week, so he’s a happy man.
The sun has been shining strongly for 2 days in a row, so Lynne is very pleased she got her toenails painted on Wednesday.
Looking forward to a skype session in the near future, and sending love from across the pond,
Lynne & Denzil
