Snowbirds are starting to flock in :)....

Ken and Sandy Wood, our friends from CT who are wintering at our old snowbird haunt Manatee Hammock here in Titusville, dropped by yesterday evening to say hello.  They are doing well.  Late December they'll fly back to CT for Christmas then return thru April.  A few weeks ago other friends, Jerry and Jo Lambert from our old Camping Chapter, arrived at their winter digs in Clermont FL and we had a nice lunch visit with them.  A few others from our old group are on the West Coast (Jo and Dean Paradise, Alton and Marie Exley) and Mike and Pat Breen will get to Titusville after the first of the year.  Others dip in and out as the weather in the Northland deteriorates and they get sick of it.  Of course we got so sick of it we put up roots here and haven't looked back.  72 deg on the porch now, going up to the low 80's.  We can live with it!

Thanksgiving 2015 musings...

Feeling VERY thankful for the gifts we've received .... family, health, and living in the semi-tropics that we love so much in our retirement.  We're very thankful for our friends and camp-mates here, which has made our transition from CT Snowbirds to full-time Florida residents so much easier and more pleasant.   I'm thankful for the climate that lets me putsey with the plants all year long....And tomorrow we'll be thankful for the turkey with trimmings and key lime pie and our Chef son David taking care of all the food preparation.  What's not to love? :).

We arrived home yesterday from the Florida Good Sams Fall Rally, held at the Southern Palms RV Resort in Eustis Florida....

It is always SO nice to get away for an extended weekend in the camping rig....time to re-acquaint with friends from Space Coast Sams (www.spacecoastsams.org), meet new folks from other camping Chapters, and do something totally different for a few days :).  This is a link to a Google Photo's album from the event: https://goo.gl/photos/Nw6Hkxy7HYC5PxpS8 and this is a link to a short Google Photo's Video from the same event: https://goo.gl/photos/2g4D5yeq9gu8d9TJ6 . Total video time is 1.50, and is a representation of 50 slides/video's.
Our next Chapter outing will be to Camelot RV Park in Malibar Florida, where we'll have our annual Chapter Christmas dinner and festivities, hosted by the Chapter officers. It's always a good time!

Made camping reservations for New Years Eve for Jetty Park at Port Canaveral....

We are arriving at Jetty Park on December 30th....camping with Murray and Donna, and on the 31st we'll be moving out to the outside perimeter rough camping area that borders the Jetty inlet. That will be "dry" camping for the day and evening, but we have the generator for power. It will be nice to be right next to the water and be able to watch the cruise ships and Navy boats enter and exit the Port.
