Dec 6, 2015 - Miami

I hit a wall yesterday. It's funny, every time I/we did planning we powered through booking accomodation, sorting out stuff, researching places to visit and every time we hit Florida we had enough and stopped. Amazingly it hit me yesterday and I had enough. I want my own bed and car and not arrive in a place with zero idea of where I am and how to get around. It's very frustrating as some people are friendly and help you and others aren't and expect because you are here you must know your way around. I think we should have a car in Miami...

Nov 1, 2015 - South for the Winter

Leaving Elkhart for points South Finally, we had our rig back, and were so pleased with our new full-body paint and interior improvements. It was time to move back into our lives, and get back on the road. We left Elkhart and were focused on getting south for the winter. We had several good travel days, and stopped in Kinston, NC to see friends. NORTH CAROLINA - Morehead City While we have enjoyed traveling with fellow RVérs Carson and Diane in the past, this time we were in their territory, and they wanted to show us some of North...

Mar 18, 2015 - Kerouac, Dali and Visas

Here it is, Thursday late afternoon, and I am just starting to work on yesterday's posting. Yesterday we attended our appointments at the French Consulate in Miami to submit our paperwork for long term tourist visas. We spent most of three days last week finding, organizing, printing and copying the package required for the application, not so easy when you live in a small camper without a printer. Fortunately, there was a very kindly staffed UPS store nearby, and the packages were finally ready to go on Monday. This also required my...

Mar 16, 2015 - Miami Zoo

Hello Everyone, Well, before heading North for the summer, we decided to take one last trip to the Florida east coast to do some sightseeing! Today we visited the Miami Zoo! Being a Monday, the crowds were reasonable, and the weather picture perfect! We saw all kinds of animals including Lions, Tigers and Bears...oh My! This Zoo is a 'Must-See' if you are in the area! To see all the animals, click on the following link: https://youtu.be/hqfOx9cBXzs

Jan 23, 2015 - Going home

Friday, January 23rd -- Snowbirds flying north Sadly, today was our 10th and final day aboard the Tartane. It was only a short motor trip from Tintamarre to Captain Oliver's Marina in Oyster Pond and we didn't have to relinquish the boat until 11:00. We were in no particular rush for breakfast but the boat had other ideas. At 4:30 the battery's low voltage alarm sounded. Our cabin was the closest to the Navigation Station so Hubby was the first (or maybe only) one to hear it and turn it off. At that time of the morning he couldn't fall...

Jan 16, 2015 - On My Way To Panama

Here I go again. This time I'm off to see Panama. This is another recommendation from Live and Invest Overseas. Many American expats live in Panama and especially in the mountain town of Boquete that I plan to spend a month in. I have signed up for Spanish Language classes at the Habla Ya Language School. The classes are every day from 1 pm to 5 pm. I'll be spending a month in Boquete, then 2 weeks traveling around the west Pacific coast and south to Panama City, leaving for home (ST. Croix) on March 1. (Peru in April) I had enough AA...

Jan 2, 2015 - Wynwood Wall Art

Another beautiful day! Laurie is off from work, so the three of us went just north of downtown Miami to see fine art on walls. Wynwood is a neighborhood in mid-Miami that has historically been a factory district. It became rundown and graffiti artists painted many abandoned buildings. Then someone had an idea to turn that art into something people would want to come and see. Restaurants and art galleries were enticed to come and people were encouraged to paint buildings in creative ways. There is one main section or courtyard containing...

Dec 30, 2014 - Chihuly!

What a beautiful day! Jeanne took me to Fairchild Gardens where Chihuly has displayed more of his glass works all around the park. He has had works displayed more than once at only 2 places in the world, and this is his third time here! I remember seeing his work and learning about him at this place - his first display, I think. I took 94 pictures and kept 83 of them, so that says something about how much I liked the visit. It was extremely hard to pick the few I am sharing here.

Dec 15, 2014 - Noel 2014....dans le sable

Bonjour! Après 3 ans d'hésitation, j'ai enfin décidé..un petit voyage de 3 semaines dans le Sud - Floride L'idée a été lancée l'an passé (2013), au party de Noel, chez ma sœur Celyne: Pourquoi ne pas changer un peu la tradition en passant le prochain Noel (2014) dans le Sud? Alors nous sommes à quelques jours du départ pour la Floride mais plus précisément: Fort Lauderdale, Miami et Key West. Je pars avec ma fille Isabelle et ma sœur Celyne en auto le 21 décembre et mon autre sœur, Françoise et son conjoint, Philippe vont nous rejoindre...

Sep 22, 2014 - Day 17

Hi Everyone, Today began on a sad note as we drove from our base over the last three nights in Kissimmee to Miami International Airport to drop off Pistol who left us to travel home via Denver and Los Angeles. Pistol was only with us for 17 days but he will be missed for his quick wit and incredible dexterity, especially when it comes to shelling peanuts. So bon voyage mate and don't forget to urn the seat warmer off on the plane. So having dropped Pistol at the airport and with a thunderstorm brewing in the distance, we made our way out of...

Jul 19, 2014 - Arrived in Miami - USA

We've arrived in Miami, USA Today is Saturday 19th July and we arrived in Miami yesterday evening. We had a 15 hour travelling day, rising at 4am and eventually arriving at our airport hotel at about 7pm. We had an interesting descent into the airport with a bit of rough air causing the plane to resemble a roller coaster for a while. This caused some of the younger and more nervous flyers a little concern and the crew received a spontaneous round of applause from the cabin when we eventually touched down. We met a very nice border official...
