We are really into the laid back lifestyle of Florida. We get to sleep in, we get to take nice long walks and we have met some new and some old friends.
We even had an unwelcome guest.
This little lizard was sitting on a bathroom towel bar so I quickly escorted him outside. He probably liked the idea of living in a unique-to-him motorhome, but I carried him outside before he tried to sell me an insurance policy.
Speaking of unique, this unusual home-made RV is located in our campground. The owner did a nice job on the outside.
We had a first-time event in that we met one of my blog followers John and Ellie from New York. John does a fine job on his blog http://relaxedrush.blogspot.com/
We really wanted to spend some time with John and Ellie, but their short time in the camp overlapped with a visit from former Illinois neighbors. We hope our paths crossed again soon so that we can do more than have a couple of brief conversations in front of our motorhome. Safe travels on your trip home to see your daughter, Kelly, sworn into the the U.S. Navy, following in her father's footsteps.
Yesterday we drove into Ocala to meet Dale and Deb Wiegand, dear friends and former neighbors from the Shady Hill subdivision in Barrington, IL. We caught up with them at the Hampton Inn. After lunch, we spent the afternoon playing Michigan Rummy and Mexican Train and laughing a lot about old times in Illinois. For dinner we found a unique restaurant with excellent food and wine and a quirky waiter and an interesting owner/chef.
Dale and Debbie, spent the day with us in St. Augustine and then we had dinner at a little local restaurant near the Corp campground that was excellent.
My next blog will be about our visit to the oldest city in the United States: nearby St. Augustine.
