We're taking a year off to travel! travel blog



We had done a bit of sight seeing the last time we were in this area so we spent much of our time at home, enjoying the lanai and the company of such good friends. They had made friends with a group of people with similar interests since their move and invited us to join them for several meals out. Tuesday was Taco Tuesday (of course) so we met 2 other couples at Lollygaggers for lunch in Crystal River. We also went to Rural King, a store kind of like Tractor Supply, but with a larger inventory that included grocery items. We both like it; hoping for one to turn up in our area. That afternoon I found the time to get my pecan cakes baked for Christmas,

The next day we had biscuits and gravy for breakfast. Then I spent the rest of the day doing banking and printing things in our RV. Rowland told us that this evening was special for for two for one fajitas, so we made plans to go, and invited the cousins to join us. As it turned out, Pennie and I shared one order and Carol and Alan shared another, and Row and Don each had a steak. The food was great and way too much; we took takeout bags home with us.

The next day was R & R day, and the day after was for laundry. We had another dinner out with some of their friends, this time 3 other couples. What interesting and fun loving people they know. Definitely a good move for them!

We had not planned to stay as long as we did but saw that a particularly nasty storm was approaching the area so decided to hunker down. And a good thing we did too, as there were high winds and lots of rain.

When the weather cleared, and just before we left, we had some fun with Pennie's new Corvette. We took multiple pictures and planned to post on Facebook that we had traded the RV for the Vette and settled down in Florida. No one actually believed that but I did get some interesting comments.

At last the weather cleared and we prepared to leave the following day.
