Nov 6, 2012 - Back Home in Florida

For the past month, we have been enjoying gorgeous fall weather here in Northwest Florida. Besides that, most of the tourists have gone home and we locals have the place to ourselves for the best time of the year! The morning I left Canada, the temperature got down to 38 degrees, so it was the perfect time to get come back to sunny Florida. What have I been doing since I got back home? Mostly just routine things... line dancing 3 mornings a week, lunches and other get togethers with friends, some volunteer work with hospice, walks at our...

Jun 18, 2012 - A Catch Up Blog

Yes, I'm finally writing a blog. So many of you have been asking..... Even though I'm presently in California for a visit, this one will just be a quick catch up on what I've been doing the past winter. Blogs about the California trip will follow soon, maybe today or tomorrow. Mostly, this winter has been a time of adapting to my new life. It's very strange to be by myself and to be in one place day after day. My routine activities have included lots of lunches, dinners and walks with friends, church, learning to line dance (still a...

Mar 18, 2012 - Panama City Beach NSA

The drive from Madison, FL to Panama City Beach is an easy 140 miles. Of the several options we chose to take Hwy 231 from I-10, quick and easy, just like that! ! ! We'll be here for 5 weeks, enjoying the sun, fun, fishing and some sightseeing. Not much more on our agenda. Dave and John have already got fishing information that'll get them started. As most places in the US the weather here is acting odd for the season. Darn, Dang if its 88 degrees with light winds and low humidity! I guess we'll just have to take it as it comes at us! This...

Mar 8, 2012 - Panama City Beach and Spring Break

Monday we had another short drive day with the move being less than 150 miles. We drove on US 98 along the coast and really enjoyed the Gulf drive. We stayed at the Emerald Coast RV Resort which has a Woodall 5 star rating and a Trailer Life 3-10 rating. The price was more that we would normally spend for a RV Park but they did have a lot of amenities. Monday afternoon we went on a drive and realized that this really was Spring Break week here. There were lots of collage age kids everywhere and lots of traffic. A trip to Walmart was a...

Mar 1, 2012 - soooo....depressing.....

What's more depressing than traveling all day through rain and fog and 100% humidity? Checking the weather forecast for where you just were (Bradenton) and seeing it is 27 degrees and sunny for the next three days. We are in Panama City Beach and the forecast here is 23 degrees and rainy for three days. Sounds like it is time to head indoors...to Silver Sands Outlet mall @ Destin. Who cares about the weather when you are at the mall? Definitely in the plans for tomorrow, I'll set the GPS in the morning and Seth will be in for a surprise...

Jan 30, 2012 - Panama City,FL

Staying in Panama City,FL at Campers Inn for 1 day. Explored St Andrews State park and took alot of photos. Beautiful park and beach and sand dunes were very nice. Showers wer really bad- they were not labelled Men or Women but I noticed the urinal. Also no lock on door so anyone can walk in when you are showering. Toilets 2 of them in open - no stalls. Terrible.

Dec 24, 2011 - Happy Holidays!

To all of you who have been asking...... the answer is "Yes, I made it back to Florida from Hawaii!" It was an easy trip..... if you can call 18 or so hours of traveling easy. Coming home was hard part.... having to face again the reality of life without Doug at my side. So many of you also have been asking "How are you doing?" And my answer is usually "Good!" "Great!" "Wonderful!" And that's the honest truth. However there is another truth.... and that truth is that sometimes I feel lost, anxious, sad, even afraid. You also ask "What are...

Nov 6, 2011 - Final pix of our camping trip

Pictures tonight are the last from our trip.... plus some for you Fillmore fans. The winter visitor season is beginning here in Florida. Canadian friends, Paulette & Gord, arrived last week & other RV friends, Bill & Diane, are here as they move on their way south. I plan to have lunch with another RVer, Arlene, later this week. Others are on the way & I will see them when I get back from my Hawaii trip. If I can't be on the road myself, this is a nice second best! Hugs to all of you out there, JoAnn & Fillmore

It has been a very busy week here getting caught up, visiting with friends, and beginning preparations for my next trip. Today's photos are from our visit to Little River Canyon.
