Visiting Harley & Helen in Arizona

We were very pleased to be invited to stay with Helen & Harley for the week 8th-15th October 2001.  They were showing us around the state, with a two day trip south to Tuscon and a day north to Sedona, as well as taking good care of us in their home in Sun City.  We met with the rest of the family as well, and really enjoyed our stay!
