2018 February - Paul and Carol S.

Many thanks go to Paul and Carol for hosting this months GTG.

Despite predictions of rain and the previous weeks high temperatures and horrid humidity the weather had calmed down.

The day was a little warm with mild humidity, but their A/C sorted that out.

On arrival we were made at home with offers of delicious beverages and starter nibbles.

Which we happily consumed while sampling the delights of their Hi-Fi.

The main room has so many things to take in I'm sure I only captured a small part of it.

So much yummy food, in so many varieties.

Much to someone's delight there was Cheese cake.

Better still.

There were TWO Cheese cakes :)
