It has been sooooooooooo cold here in Florida for the past week with temperatures running better than 20 degrees colder than normal. Last night the temperature dropped to about 28 degrees here in Wauchula. Oh - how we wish there was someplace to play pickleball inside!!
But Jean and Stan and Sally had invited all the players from Peace River over to Torrey Oaks today. They could not have picked a better day. The temperature was actually supposed to reach 60 before the day was over, but we've already been warned to prepare for the next artic blast.

Here are some pictures of some of the group playing. We were introduced to everyone at Torrey Oaks, but we'll need that introduction a few more times before we remember all the names.

The management at Torrey Oaks always treats their guests well. Following the pickelball play we all met in the courtyard where Garrett had just finished grilling hot dogs for everyone. Onion, relish, cheese and chili along with the regular condiments for the dogs, along with chips. Sally passed around a large dish of cookes for dessert.
The day was not over yet. Faye was having a line dancing class this afternoon, so Krystal, Sherry, Tracy and her daughter and I told Faye we'd be back for her class this afternoon.
