On a dreary and cold New England day, we started out south to Miami where we will eventually fly to Costa Rica for 12 days. On our return to Miami we will drive to Anna Maria Island and settle in for 6 weeks. Today we drove as far as Washington DC where we planned have dinner with Adam and family, do a bit of sight seeing tomorrow and head out on Wednesday. Adam emailed while we were on the road that he has the flu. Against my advice he intends to meet us tomorrow night to pick up his Moxie. I'm not convinced he really wants to see us, just get his Moxie. If we get the flu from him and miss our Costa Rica trip, he is definitely disinherited. So this evening we ate a mediocre dinner in the hotel and kicked back in the room. Wayne had a long, hard 10 hour drive in the rain.
