Tor and Anna

Last Friday afternoon I got to do something that I've wanted to do for many years. I got to meet Tor and Anna from Oslo Norway. His website is called TorAa Mirror. They have traveled to the United States before, but didn't get close enough for a meet. This year was different. We started talking about getting together some months ago and needed to get the dates to make our meeting happen. During their visit in the area that only left Friday and most of Saturday while our club was at Driftwood Yacht Club. Tor said... 'We shall meet' and meet we did.

They spent all evening and well into the night with our club and then returned to spend the day with us before they resumed their travels. We had a fabulous time and enjoyed their company immensely. To say they are wonderful people is an understatement. Click on any photograph to biggify.
In the first picture is Anna and Tor on the back of our boat. The second picture is Anna, Tor, Me and our vice commodore having a chat.
During my introduction of them to our club and the folks of Driftwood Yacht Club they became honorary members of Delta Marina Yacht Club and got their own name tags. They also got a very nice bottle of Rombauer Chardonnay.
Left to right: Director Georgia, Vice Commodore Duffy, Hubby Zane, Anna, Me Sandee, and Tor!

The video below was taken after breakfast on Saturday morning. Just one more gift that we wanted them to have.
Now we just need to travel to Oslo Norway to visit them. We love you Tor and Anna.
