Several friends and family members joined us today from Poquoson to Yorktown to share our completion of the Loop and celebrate with us.  Thanks so much to Bob and Gennie, Pat, Joy and Frank, and Tom and Sally, for being

part of this!  And we were happy to have our niece, Shannon and great niece, Emily join us in Yorktown and return to Poquoson with us.

As soon as we returned to Poquoson (where we will remain for about a month), our friends David and Deane, and Susan and Buster arrived to greet us! It was wonderful to see them and share in the celebration!
We will write a more complete summary blog in the next day or so to recapture our experience on the Loop. 
We had cake and champagne after lunch to celebrate!
