My Monday Plans
April 30, 2018 9:42am CST
Normally, on Monday we would be going to exercise class at the pool. My hubs wasn't quite up for it this morning but that is okay, we are headed to the shoreline for lunch today. My cousin Chris, from Vancouver, is doing a genealogy trip to our neck of the woods and we are meeting him in Westbrook at our favorite seafood restaurant for lunch. When we went to Vancouver and Victoria in 2004, he gave us the best personal tour and while I am not giving him a tour, I thought treating him to a great meal was one way of expressing my thanks. He and I share an avid interest in our genealogy and if the truth be told, we met online about 18 years ago. The Internet made our searches fruitful. We filled in some missing links in each other's trees. We are 3rd cousins but honestly as close as first cousins could ever be

@BelleStarr I love Lenny and Joe's!!! I've eaten at Water's Edge more than I've used the spa. I really love the spa more at Old Saybrook Inn and Marina, but we spend several days when we go there. Have you been there? Their restaurants are terrific, too.

I hope you enjoy lunch with your cousin. I also met a third cousin on Genes Reunited. He helped me fill in some gaps in the family tree. Not only that he had been living within a mile of me for many years and had been born in Liverpool too. He was also the same age.
