We are at the YMCA of the Rockies Snow Mountain in Colorado attending a reunion of past and present teachers of International Christian School in Hong Kong.
Here’s Dave with Jon and Cath. Jon organized the reunion. The YMCA ranch is very near his parents’ home. Our reunion coincides nicely with the Colorado wedding reception for Jon and Cath who were married earlier this summer in New Zealand.
Dave is still on crutches following his hip surgery but he didn’t let that interfere with him enjoying a round of mini golf soon after we arrived.
After supper activities the first day included making smores around a fire and playing Dutch Blitz and other card games with such enthusiasm that a staff person had to come into the lodge the ICS gang is sharing and ask us to keep the noise down.
The second morning I participated in a group hike up to a waterfall. It wasn’t a very strenuous hike but we sure noticed that the altitude of 9000 feet made breathing just a little more difficult.
In the afternoon there were ladder golf and horseshoe tournaments.
In the evening Jon’s parents invited us all to their beautiful home for a barbecue.
The food was excellent.
It was great to share stories about the many past experiences we’ve all shared.
It was nice to spend time together with people who played such a big role in our lives during our time in Hong Kong and were part of our overseas community and family.
We are looking forward to more get togethers and activities with everyone in the coming days.
