Joyce and John Hansen, of Algoma Township, wrote us last week to let us know that the Post has been having a great time traveling for the last month in a warmer climate.
They sent us a few photos of their travels. One shows John with the Post on Sanibel Island, off the west coast of Florida, near Fort Myers. “Sanibel is known the world over as a great place to collect shells, and Bowman Beach is one of the best places on the Island,” remarked Joyce.
The second photo is of Joyce and her grandchildren, Kai Hansen, and Zane Hansen, on the beach at Kill Devil Hills, in the Outer Banks of North Carolina. She said Kitty Hawk is to the north, and Nags head to the south. “Our son and grandsons from New York joined us for a cold week at the beach,” she said.
Thanks so much, Joyce and John, for taking us with you!
If you take the Post on vacation with you, send us a photo with some info to firstname.lastname@example.org.
