We continued our USA visit driving from NY back Chicago for a long weekend. Then we drove on to Minnesota for 11 days with family and annual checkups. We spent a weekend in Maple Lake with Al's sister Connie and Steve and his brother Dave and Julie. We have our home rented out in Burnsville and the city inspection wanted the deck flooring and rails replaced. Al with help from brother-in-law Steve and friend Mike got it done despite all that was going on. Glad we had fun times with Patrick's family in TN because between summer camp and interruptions we didn't have a lot of time together to visit. We did get to see my sister Maggie a couple of times and our friend Rich. We spent one afternoon with sailing friends Cindy and Bob (met in 2006 sailing the Med) visiting about crossing Atlantic and the Caribbean. We ended our USA visit with another drive back to Chicago and 5 more days with Justin's family.
