New Friends!

A couple of weeks before Eddie and I left on our trip to North Carolina, we met a lovely couple, Chris and Rich, who live in the Uvita area. They built a home there about five years ago. We were talking with their builder about building our home and the builder arranged for us to look at Chris and Rich’s house. It’s a lovely home and we were very impressed with the quality. While we were looking at their home, Chris invited me to attend her macrame beading bracelet class. She and several other ladies meet every Saturday at a restaurant near Uvita where they make beaded bracelets and then have lunch. I had a delightful time and I managed to learn how to make a bracelet! I wasn’t able to finish it in one session, but managed to do so later. Even though I had a lot of fun, it’s about a 30 minute drive for me, so I probably won’t be able to attend every Saturday.

My first bracelet

Shortly after we arrived back to Chapel Hill, we met up with Doug and Corrine for dinner at The Top of the Hill Restaurant in downtown Chapel Hill. Doug is our neighbor in Costa Rica! His house is 100 yards up the road from our lot. Turns out his daughter lives in Mebane, NC, which is about a 15 minute drive from our daughter’s home (where we stay when we are in Chapel Hill). Doug and Corrine were visiting their daughter in Mebane and we were able to have a lovely dinner with them in Chapel Hill. It’s a small world!!!

We are having a wonderful time visiting with our children, family and friends!!! It’s been a very busy visit so far…trying to catch up with everyone and squeezing in some shopping, too. It’s been great!
